Children who participated in the Summer Reading program have until August 9 to return their reading logs. Drawings for the grand prizes will take place August. 12. Thanks to all who joined in the fun this summer!

The library will be closed August 12 for carpet cleaning.

The Book Challenge for August is to read a book with a question for the title. We have a selection for you to choose from.

The library will be open five more hours per week starting in September. We would like your input concerning our hours of operation. We also invite you to complete our community survey. Both surveys may be completed on our Facebook page or in person at the library.

The library is looking for Harlem High School memorabilia to have on display during the all class reunion Labor Day weekend. If you have photos, letter jackets or sweaters, trophies or awards, etc. please contact the library. The library will open special hours during the reunion for people to see the displays and to sit and visit.

Bestselling author Jamie Ford will make a visit to the Hi-Line libraries in September. His bestselling titles include “Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet,” “The Songs of Willow Frost,” and “Love and Other Consolation Prizes.” He will be the guest of the Harlem Library Monday, September 9. A “meet-and-greet” will take place from 6:00 – 7:00 including a taco bar provided by local book club members. Mr. Ford’s presentation will begin at 7:00. His books will be on sale that evening and Mr. Ford will be available to sign his books and for photos. He will be at the Blaine County Library, Chinook, September 10 and the Havre-Hill County Library September 11. This project is funded in part by a grant from Humanities Montana, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

During these hot summer days come cool off at the library! Two great new “beach” (or recliner) reads are “Summer of ‘69” by Elin Hilderbrand and “Surfside Sisters” by Nancy Thayer.

“Someone Knows” is the latest novel by Lisa Scottoline. Twenty years ago Allie Garvey and four other teens were involved in a dangerous prank that went tragically wrong. Believing getting caught would be the worst that could happen, they never told anyone. The dark secret has eaten away at Allie. She now is ready to learn the truth behind the incident. But she isn’t ready for the shocking conclusion.

“Robert B. Parker’s Buckskin” is by Robert Knott. Lawmen Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch must put a stop to the violent fight between two local businesses over a gold claim. A young miner disappears and one of the businessmen is killed on his front step. Another killer is heading their way bent on revenge. Can Cole and Hitch keep the peace in time to protect the community for the Appaloosa Days festival?

Two new WWII historical novels are “Mistress of the Ritz” by Melanie Benjamin and “Lost Roses” by Martha Hall Kelly.

Mystery readers will enjoy “Aunt Dimity and the Heart of Gold” by Nancy Atherton, “Whiskers in the Dark” by Rita Mae Brown, and “Murder in Bel-Air” by Cara Black.
