At the Library for August 13th, 2019

Updated 2019/08/12

 

In ‘Wolfpack,’ two-time Olympic gold medalist and FIFA World Cup champion presents a powerful and uplifting message to girls and women on how they can change the world.

 

Student wizards come together to help each other solve a murderous plot in Tamora Pierce’s ‘Tempests and Slaughter.’

 

StoryTime and Baby LapTime are both on hiatus until September.

 

The Summer Reading Club Closing Ceremonies will be on Tuesday, August 20th at 11 am and 2 pm, and on Wednesday, August 21st at 11 am and 2 pm. Please register for one of these times (don’t worry if you cannot make it—we will hold your medal and certificate for you). The last day to turn in your reading log will be this Saturday, August 17th. Congratulations to all those who participated this year—another record turnout. (There is still programming all this week as well.)
