Library Announcements

Thank you to all who signed up and participated in this year’s Summer Reading programs—both adults and children!  Congratulations to all of our prize winners!

A Craft Fair/Makers Market will be held in the Library/Center Building parking lot, on Saturday, September 11, from 10 am to 1 pm, for the final Second Saturday event.  Many of the Celebrate Art! activities have been rescheduled to this event, due to the cancellation from the August rainstorm.  Support local artisans, crafters, and makers, take part in the craft supplies swap, and more!

Our One Book, One Town Title is American Like Me:  Reflections on Life Between Cultures by America Ferrera.  The book contains thirty-one stories about life between cultures, told by actors, comedians, athletes, politicians, artists, and writers, who are also immigrants, children or grandchildren of immigrants, indigenous people, or people who otherwise grew up with deep and personal connections to more than one culture.  Each of them struggled to establish a sense of self, find belonging, and feel seen.  Ranging from the heartfelt to the hilarious, their stories shine a light on a quintessentially American experience and will appeal to anyone with a complicated relationship to family, culture, and growing up.  Copies now available at the reference desk.  More information to follow on upcoming events relating to the book.
