SUMMER STORY HOUR CHANGES

      Now that school is out, our Wednesday Story Hour will have a slightly different look. Children ages 3-8 are invited to come and participate with a parent each Wednesday morning from 10-11. We will have stories, a craft and a snack centered around a theme each week. If you are planning on attending, it would be appreciated if you would call the library ahead of time.

NEXT TRIVIA NIGHT IS JULY 23

 The lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are here and what better way to spend a quiet summer night than playing trivia at the library? Two-person teams compete for valuable prizes by answering questions on a variety of subjects. Some will probably be easy and others a bit more challenging. Either way, we have a lot of fun just trying to come up with a reasonable answer. One question from our latest challenge was:

In what sport might you be seen doing an Eskimo Roll? Got the answer?

Come try your luck on July 23rd at 6:30. You will laugh and have a great time and you might even win! Light refreshments are served. Be sure to tell your friends about this free entertaining activity brought to you by your neighborhood library. By the way, the answer to the above question is kayaking.

TRIVIA NIGHT TO BE HELD JUNE 25

     Two things that we slowly stop doing as we get older: playing and thinking creatively. This is a tragedy. We gradually replace the things that make life interesting with those that make it more comfortable. Don't let this happen to you. Keep exercising your brain by joining us for our monthly Trivia Challenge. Two-person teams will compete for valuable prizes on Thursday, June 25th at 6:30 at the library. Come test your trivia knowledge or just come for the laughs.

NO STORY HOUR ON JUNE 17 AND 24!

 Story Hour is cancelled on June 17 and 24. It will resume on July 1.

MUSIC AND POETRY EVENT TO BE HELD AT THE LIBRARY ON JUNE 7

        Do you remember your favorite songs growing up? Did you have singers you idolized? Was buying your first 45 or album a major milestone? This is just what Fulton writer Jim Farfaglia did with his latest book of poetry, Reach Out In The Darkness: How Pop Music Saved My Mortal Soul.  Br returning to the music of the 1960s and '70s, watching old TV variety shows and reading biographies about that era's singers, Farfaglia crafted 60 poems to honor the musicians, songs, and cultural exoerience they created. Join us as Jim reads from his book. He will be accompanied by musicians Gina Holsopple and Matthew Wood, who will recreate some of those great songs. You won't want to miss this chance to enjoy reminiscing with some old musical favorites. The free program begins at 6 p.m.

LIBRARY BUDGET VOTE PASSED!

      Thank you to everyone who supported the library with a yes vote. We look forward to continuing to serve the area communities with the latest bestsellers, DVDs, story hour, concerts, author talks, trivia and much more.

LIBRARY VOTE TO BE HELD ON MAY 19

      Please get out and support your local library on May 19. We are asking for a very modest budget increase this year which will amount to just cents per household. We are facing the cost of replacing computers and maintaining an aging building as well as serving a larger patron base. It is our hope to continue to offer the very latest in print and DVD selection. Your YES vote will help us to do that.

TRIVIA NIGHT WILL BE ON MAY 21

      Our next Trivia Night Challenge will be Thursday, May 21 at 6:30 at the library. 2-person teams are invited to think up a clever name and come have some fun trying to answer questions on a variety of subjects. Where can you have this much fun for free? Prizes will be awarded and refreshments will be served.
