SUMMER READING HULA HOOPS AND JUMP ROPES

We braided jump ropes from old grocery bags and finished up the handles with a little duct tape. 

This marks the first official library program to be held in the new library park.  36 enjoyed a great book, TimBits and pink lemonade, plus this fabulously fun craft.  Jump!  Jump!  Jump!

IF YOU LIKE WOODEN BOATS AND HISTORY THEN THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU

The library is pleased to add Rowdy by Christopher Madsen to our collection.  It is the story of a 59-foot Classic Herreshoffs built in 1916 for the New York Yacht Club and purchased for $5,000 in 1998 by the author.  As he was rebuilding her he became fascinated with her original owners.  He spent countless hours reading musty old newspapers which led to more research in libraries, historical offices and town halls.
