FINE FREE SUMMER ENDS WITH THE BEGINNING OF SCHOOL
We hope that you have taken advantage of fine free summer. Wednesday, August 1, marks the beginning of school and the end of our Fine Free period. As a reminder, fines for books are five cents per day; audiobooks are $1.00 per day; and DVDs/videos are $2.00 per day. Renewals may be made three times and you may call in at any time of the day to do that.
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM YOUR FRIENDLY LOCAL LIBRARY?
Since our wild and crazy summer is about over, the library is turning to thoughts of scheduling computer classes and purchasing new material with funds available through the Hatchie River Regional Library. What do you want? We will be providing eight more classes with our technology training grant. We hope to schedule another basic Excel class in September and we are open to suggestions for any other future classes.
We have scheduled our next computer class for Thursday, September 13 when Leah Shull will teach a class on basic Microsoft Word. In October, Holly Roeder will instruct on how to make Christmas cards using online resources.
Debbie Armour, RN with Henderson Health Center, recently conducted a class on weight management. She is very happy to be coming back in August to present another class on your health. Check our Home Page for all the details or give us a call at 989-4673. There is no need to sign up. Just show up and the class is free.
State funds have become available through the Hatchie River Regional Library so be sure and tell us what you want to see on our shelves. We always try to purchase new books from popular authors but we are very happy to take suggestions. Remember that this is your library and we do want to provide our public with great selections.
Remember also that, if you cannot find something on our shelves, we can request what you want from another library through our inter-library loan program. We are here to serve you!
STORYTIME WITH MISS NANCY
Storytime is on Tuesdays at 10:00 AM with our director, Nancy Canada, reading to children and parents alike. All ages are welcome. Come on out and hear a great story well read.
CAN'T FIND WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR?
We might be able to borrow what you want from another library. Ask about this at the circulation desk.
WHAT ARE THE BOOK CLUBS READING?
The Brown Bag Book Club met on Wednesday, August 8, at noon, to discuss A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. September's book will be Summer Hours at the Robbers Library by Sue Halpern.
The High School Book Club has attracted several avid readers. At the July meeting, the group decided that the next book for them would be Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake.
Call or come by the library to be put on the book club list if you are interested.

by A.J. Pearce
I will walk through crisp, gold harvest fields,
through meadows yellowed by the August heat,
loiter through the cool, dim wood that yields
such perfect flowers and quiet so complete...
Books make great gifts. They have the whole world inside them. - Neil Gaiman
