THE LIBRARY LOWDOWN

I cannot live without books. Thomas Jefferson
WELCOME TO FINE FREE SUMMER!
Since school is out, we do not want to impede anyone's visit to the library. If you have overdue materials, or if you have returned library materials late and have a fine on your card, never fear - Fine Free Summer is here. This offer is good until August 1, so take advantage of this major discount while it lasts. There is no excuse for not visiting your friendly local library.
THIS LIBRARY WILL BE ROCKIN' THIS SUMMER
The theme for our 2018 Summer Reading Program is Libraries Rock and we have lined up as great bunch of presenters that will both entertain and inform. Our programs are generally on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the month of June, but we found so many interesting folks that we have two programs on Monday and one scheduled in July. All programs are at 10 AM. Our reward for reading a number of books have grown also, thanks to the generosity of local businesses plue, if 100 books are read, the reader will get a free child's ticket to the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville thanks to a partnership with CMA and the Tennessee State Library and Archives.
Come by and pick up a handout with our schedule and a reading/listening log.
WHAT ARE THE BOOK CLUBS READING?
The Brown Bag Book Club met on Wednesday, June 13, at noon to discuss Dispatches From Pluto: Lost and Found in the Mississippi Delta by Richard Grant. June's book will be Flat Broke with Two Goats by Jennifer McGaha.
The High School Book Club is reading Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and will meet on Thursday, July 12, at four pm to discuss the classic.
Our Middle School Book Club began meeting on Thursday, June 7, at 2:00 pm and their first title was revealed that day.
It is Sideways Stories From Wayside School. They will meet every Thursday in June and July. The book club is open to any child who has finished third grade through fifth grade, but children MUST sign up so we know how many books to order.
Join us for one of these great discussion groups!
