Our four July events conclude with the “Cloudy, With a Chance of Meatballs” picnic! The picnic begins at 6pm on Tuesday, July 22nd, and is hosted by the Friends of the Galesville Public Library. Our picnic is followed by a program about meteorology, presented by Storm Team 8′s Michelle Poedel! Everyone welcome. Keep reading, our finale party is August 19th!
During the month of July, we are collecting donations for the G-E-T Food Pantry. Please remember to bring non-perishable food or cash the next time you come to the library. Food donations get lower during the summer months, but the need is still there, especially for families who count on school lunch! Your cash donations are greatly appreciated, so that foods they especially need can be purchased in bulk at a reduced price!
Thursday, July 10 at 1:00 pm: Traveling Lantern Theatre Company presents The Industrious Mr. Frankin: Lightning, Wit, and Statesmanship. This interactive play will be lots of fun and includes audience participation. See you at the library, it’s free! Franklin founded the Library Company of Philadelphia in 1731, but it wasn’t free. It was a subscription library. Members pooled their money to buy books and paid an annual fee to buy more books each year. The first person granted permission to use the library for free was botanist John Bartram. Cool!
