Juniata County Library

It was great to see so many people in the library getting some summer reading at our Friends of the Library book sale. Thanks to everyone who came out, as well as all the volunteers who got the books ready for sale and manned the desk during the sale itself. Speaking of summer reading, it may be only April, but at the library we’re already planning for this year’s Summer Reading Program. Our theme this year is “Fizz, Boom, Read,” a celebration of science, technology and related fields. Our Children’s Librarian has some wonderful programs planned for this year that we’re all looking forward to. Sign-ups will begin in once the school year has ended.

Have you heard about our Adult Book Club yet? Our group met April 14 to discuss John Hart’s “The Last Child.” Our pick for May is “A Rage to Live” by John O’Hara. If you are interested in participating in the next book discussion on May 12, stop by the library to get a copy of the book or email me at bclemens@juniatalibrary.org for more information.

Our library is celebrating National Library Week this week. In honor of the event, we’ve gone fine-free for the entire week. While this does not apply to fines charged for materials that have already been returned, any item that is returned this week will have all fines forgiven.

There are still a few weeks of story hour left before we break for summer. Our storytimes will run through May 8. If you or your child haven’t attended yet, there is still time. Our story hour for toddlers, Tales for Two, is on Thursdays at 11 a.m. while our storytimes for children ages 3-5 are Tuesdays at 2 and 6 p.m. We look forward to seeing you!
