And here is the schedule:

2nd Thursday – Fiction

Note that the writer’s group will not meet at the library on the 1st Thursday of each month– the room is otherwise scheduled.

Summer Reading! Why Not You?

I am soooo remiss in not mentioning this sooner.

Yes, our Adult Summer Reading program started June 1. Come sign up. For every book you read, you fill out a ticket. There's a drawing every week for chocolates and gift certificates to Powells Books. The Grand Prize is a stay at the coast.

What' s not to like? And you're reading anyway this summer, right?!
