After seven and a half weeks the kids have done it — they surpassed the adults in reading fiction! The kids are at 129 books, the adults at 107. The adults are still ahead in non-fiction, but not by much. It’s interesting that the leader in non-fiction is the 600’s (technology including applied sciences, engineering, home economics, and building) for both adults and kids. Where are all the manga readers? Or those who like biographies? Help us out–fill in your reading.
Looking for fun this week? Why not check out one of our museum or park passes? We have Vermont State Park and Historical Sites passes that will get a car load of folks into one of these sites for free. Why not head over to Boulder Beach and enjoy the water? Are you interested in things technical? Then head down the river to Windsor and visit the Precision Museum with our pass. Take the Historic Sites pass, too, and visit Constitution House. Going westwards? Borrow the Vermont History Museum Pass (free) and the Echo Pass (this one reduces the admission to only $4/person). Remember, the library is more than books. Check us out!
