The summer reading challenge continues. Just think, if everyone added a marker for every book read in the next few weeks, would we fill up the fiction columns? Right now we are at 175 total books for the kids and 162 for the adults. Remember, the markers can be for any book you read (or listen to) since June 3. Books do not have to come from our library!
There is a new show in the gallery — Nicholas Alex’s Faces: On the Edge of a New Frontier. Drop in through September to see these interesting collages and assemblages.
