After the success of our 2015 Adult Reading Challenge, we are excited to start the 2016 challenge. This year’s theme is: Where are You Reading? We are challenging our patrons to read 50 books this year. 25 of them must have something to do with U.S. States and 25 must have something to do with other countries. Things that will count are books that were written in that state/country, books that are about the state/country, or maybe the author was from that state/country. You may only use each state/country once. To help you track where in the world you’ve “visited” in your book, we will provide you a passport. This booklet has spaces to fill out which books you’ve read and where they fit into the challenge. There is also a space in the back that allows you to keep track of which states/countries you’ve already used so you don’t use them twice. As always, we are more than happy to help you search for a book that fits your wants/needs. Stop by today to pick up a passport!
The Friends of East Morgan County Library District are hosting the first ever Valentine’s Day Book Sale. It will be held in the library basement on Friday, February 12th and Saturday, February 13th from 10 am-2 pm. We have had several large donations so our collection is full of new and barely used books that still need lots of love. Come take a look at our new inventory and maybe you will end up rescuing a book or two. We hope to see you here one of these days!
On Tuesday, January 19th, we will be hosting Emily Furman of Whimsy Moments Photography. She will be giving tips and tricks on how to better your photography skills. EMCLD will not provide any supplies for this event. You are more than welcome to bring your own camera, but having one is not necessary to participate. We can’t wait to see you at this wonderful and informative event!
Friday, January 22nd, the TAG team (grades 6-12) will be having a game day in the Activity Room of the library. We will have all of your favorite games including a surprise game that is sure to be a mess (in a good way). Come have some popcorn, play some games, and see your favorite librarians! We can’t wait to see you here!
