This Friday July 31 we will be celebrating “Our Community of Heroes” at 6:30pm!  We have a great community filled with TONS of heroes!  Let’s focus on some of them and have a grand ole time!

Be sure to join us on Wednesday August 5 at 6:30pm for Out of the Cage Pet Mobile!  Join Jennifer Clark as she brings her traveling exotic petting zoo to our library.  She will be bringing 6 different animals to learn about as well as see and touch!

On Thursday August 6 at 2:00pm we will be showing our last movie in our Heroes Film Series. The 1962 classic movie, To Kill a Mockingbird is what we are showing!  Refresh yourself and be sure to get a copy of the book, available now and read it before we show the movie! Popcorn will be provided; just bring your own drink!  And exciting news….originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.  Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later.  Be sure to read it too!

On Thursday August 6 we will be having another Essential Oils Class at 6:30pm. Join Robin Suarez as she helps us to better our lives naturally.  Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in flowers, seeds, bark, roots and other parts of plants. They are powerfully fragrant. They have been used throughout history for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits.
