A big “Thank You” to all that stopped at our Book Sale held during Crazy Days. It was a last minute decision, and turned out to be a good daylots of books found new homes. For those of you that missed us, we will be having another book sale Aug. 11-13 in the West Room. These will be different selections, so come by and see what we have.
I had an email recently that caught my eye from the National Center for Interactive Learning/Space Science Center. It was letting us know that they have a free webcast for library patrons titled “Constellations: Science and Stories in the Sky” on Tuesday, July 28. If you are interested, I have a handout at the library with more information. The Space Science Institute has lots of good materials to access from any computer. Its address is ncil.spacescience.org/index.html.
