Shelburne Library


The new summer books are coming in very quickly just in time to relax in a shady spot or on the beach on your holidays. The weather has been so hot that escaping with a good book will make it really bearable. Let us know whether you need to make special arrangements for an extended holiday at the cottage.

A reminder that we will be closed this Saturday through Monday for the July 1st holiday weekend. We will re-open on Tuesday, July 2 at 10 a.m. An advance notice too, to remind you that we will be closed the Saturday of the Fiddle Contest weekend.

There is a great deal of buzz this week here as we move into our full complement of summer programs.

Starting this Thursday night, teen bookworms will be gathering at the Library for the first ever meeting of the Pizza & Pages book club.  This program provides an opportunity for teens in grades 7-12 to gather and discuss their favourite books and current recommendations.  Pizza & Pages meets on the last Thursday of the month from 6 – 7:30 p.m. New members are welcome to attend. For more information or to register, call Lindsay at 519-925-2168. In anticipation of this program, and thanks to funding from the TD Bank, we purchased several hundred YA (Young Adult) novels and popular series.

Then on Saturday, July 6th we ramp up our cross Canada road trip through our TD Summer Reading Club with the launch at 10:30 am.  Race over to register and join in the fun with all the activities planned including weekly craft session on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 11 a.m. Please do register as that will help us with supplies and other planning.

We have a new summer student, Adam Ferguson, starting on Tuesday to join Emily and Lindsay to assist us with our programming. We often have over 120 children in the Summer Reading program and we anticipate lots of interest in our Teen programs. Adam will be primarily working with me as we start to develop our new Seniors At-home program. We have several referrals already and are eagerly looking for more as we plan a rollout later in August.

The Adult Book Club is this Thursday from 2 – 4 p.m. and we have lots of new books to present. I just finished Elin Hilderbrand's new novel, Beautiful Day and found it a terrific summer read... lots of character development, warm fuzzy sentiments, and some poignant family moments.
