A big thank you goes out to Professor William Snyder for hosting his free Tai Chi Chuan classes at the library since September.  If you did not have a chance to make his classes he will be resuming them on Monday nights again in September.

We are showing the movie, Escape from Planet Earth this Friday June 28 at 6:00pm.  We provide the popcorn so bring the family in for this “lightweight, warp speed, brightly coined trifle”.

Our summer reading program is almost here!  The theme this year is “Dig Into Reading!”.  Be sure to stop in and sign up starting the week of July 8.  It runs until Friday August 16.  We are also having an adult summer reading program again this year too!  So anyone from ages 1 on can have fun with us this summer!  Hope to see you!

Join us on Wednesday July 10 at 6:30pm as we create this year’s summer reading mural!  Supplies will be provided; just need all young and old talent to come and create!

Our annual book sale will be on Friday July 12 from 4-8pm and Saturday July 13 from 9-2pm.  Lots of great deals!  Get some great reads for the summer ahead!  Book Sale will be held in the Library’s program room.

We will be “digging into gardening” on Wednesday July 17 at 6:30pm.  Come join us as we have fun with gardening!  We will be making our own goofy grass heads to take home and as well as doing lots of other fun things too!

We will be closed on Thursday July 4 to observe Independence Day.  We will reopen Friday at noon.

We will no longer be open on Saturdays during the summer.  Please mark your calendars and make sure you get here by Friday to get something to read or watch!

We are open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 12pm to 8pm, Tuesday and Thursday 10am to 8pm for the summer.

Join Madison County Historian, Matthew Urtz, as he completes his 3 part Madison County series entitled, The Mystery of Muller Hill this Friday June 14 at 6:30pm!  He will present the story of Louis Anathe Miller, the building of his home and tries to show empirical evidence that he was/was not the King of France in exile like what has been suggested.  It’s an interesting talk about one of Madison County’s most endearing characters!

Come learn Tai Chi Chuan with Morrisville State College Professor William S. Snyder on Monday June 17 at 6:30pm.  He will be doing this class for free every Monday so teens and adults; this is your chance to learn this and have fun!  If you cannot make that day, he will be here again on Monday June 24 for his last class until September.

Our last book talk until fall will be on Wednesday June 19 at 6:30pm.  Join us as we talk about the book, To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis.  Copies can be picked up now at the circulation desk.

Rabbit’s are getting revenge on Friday June 21 at 6:30pm.  For years magicians have been pulling rabbits out of hats, and quite frankly it seems that the bunnies have had enough!  Jump in and join Mister E, No-No the clown and Teeny Tiny the Clown for a giggle filled festivity of rabbit tricks, rabbit jokes, rabbit songs, rabbit magic and more bunny fun that you can shake a carrot at!  What a way to kick off the summer!

We are showing the movie, Escape from Planet Earth on Friday June 28 at 6:00pm.  We provide the popcorn so bring the family in for this “lightweight, warp speed, brightly coined trifle”.

We will be having a fundraiser at Pizza Hut in Hamilton on Thursday June 27 from 4-10pm.  It’s easy!!  Stop into the library or see any trustee for a coupon and then head to Pizza Hut between the times above and buy pizza!  20% of the sales that night go to our library!  If you forget your coupon make sure to mention the library or we won’t get the credit!  Eat LOTS of pizza and help the Morrisville Public Library!!!!

We will no longer be open on Saturdays during the summer.  Please mark your calendars and make sure you get here by Friday to get something to read or watch!
