Summer Reading Program

The fourth and last Monday Afternoon event is from 12 to 2 pm July 28th. This will be our Prize Awarding Party, so after lunches are eaten, the person who has read the longest chooses his or her prize first, and so on. Only after those who have participated in reading chose their prizes, can those who are left chose a prize until everything is gone. So, readers, please remember to record your titles and time spent reading no later than 6 pm Wednesday, July 23rd, because the Prize Awarding Party is Monday, July 28th, from 12 to 2 pm. I have some paper plates and cups decorated in a tropical pattern, so for a little something extra besides the school lunches Hawaiian Punch and fresh pineapple chunks will be offered.

 Mystery Book Group

The Mystery Book Group’s next meeting is Friday, August 1st, and from 1:30 to 2:30 pm we’ll discuss Mercy Falls, by William Kent Krueger, the 5th book in the Cork O’Connor mysteries series.  From NoveList, provided by BadgerLink:   “Still troubled by an ambush that leaves his deputy lingering near death, Sheriff Cork O’Conner must investigate the mutilation murder of a Chicago businessman. Soon Cork finds himself distracted by the lovely female shadowing him and the handsome man stalking his wife.”
