Blaine County Library


June 5, 2019

This week we have a couple of non-fiction books and a number of novels from some of our patrons’ favorite authors. In “Decorating with Plants” Baylor Chapman walks readers through everything they need to know to bring houseplants into their home. “Charged: The New Movement to Transform American Prosecution and End Mass Incarceration” by Emily Bazile, a renowned journalist and legal commentator exposes the unchecked power of the prosecutor as a driving force in America’s mass incarceration crisis—and charts a way out. “Wild Car” by Stuart Woods is a new Stone Barrington novel. Two women fight for their lives against an enigmatic killer in “I She Wakes” by Michael Koryta. “Under the Table” by Janet Evanovich is a funny, romantic story in which a canny young woman makes over her awkward millionaire client . . . with some hot, sexy, and surprising results. “A List” by J.A. Jance is an Ali Reynolds novel. “Such a Perfect Wife” is a thriller by Kate White.

Summer Reading Programs officially started Monday. We have fun programs and events for children of all ages. Children who participate in the summer reading program keep their minds active and enter school in the fall ready to learn and ready to succeed. The theme for this year’s Summer Reading Program is A Universe of Stories. For every two hours read, kids will be able to enter their name into our Summer Reading prize drawings. There will also be small prizes awarded for every two hour entry. Pre-readers are encouraged to participate by having someone read to them. The top reader will win an after-hours pizza party. We will have computers available for taking Accelerated Reader tests.

Activities for the summer will be Movie Mondays at 1:30 p.m. This will be a family friendly movie and everyone is welcome to attend. Storytime for children ages 5 and under will be Tuesday mornings at 10:30 a.m. The Summer Reading Program will be Tuesday afternoons at 1:30 for all ages. Wednesdays will be Middle School Hangout for kids entering grades 6 through 8 at 1:30 p.m. Thursdays will be LEGO Club/STEM Club at 1:30 p.m. for grades K through 6. Older kids interested in LEGO Club and STEM Club are welcome to attend as are Pre-K children if accompanied by an adult. We are starting a new program this summer called Books and Babies which will be Friday mornings at 10:30 a.m. This program is designed for building language, motor, and social skills for babies and their mommies. The first program will be Friday June 7th at 10:30 a.m. and coffee will be served!
