Books To Movie Night


Sign up to read the book, 2001: A Space Odyssey written by Arthur C. Clarke, and then watch the movie on June 30th. Unlike most, this book and movie were developed concurrently and the movie was released before the book. With science fiction themes such as the perils of technology and nuclear war, evolution, space exploration, and artificial intelligence, it is the perfect movie to watch in June during our science-themed adult summer reading program. Please call 580-7290 or sign-up at the front desk to register.

Kids Korner


Spencer Public Library wants you and your family to "Fizz! Boom! Read!" during Summer 2014. We're having two special programs so you can do just that.

Program #1 - This listening program is especially for infants and toddlers. Just keep track of how many minutes the child listens to someone else read to them. For every 5 hours, there is a prize. It's that easy!
Program #2 - This reading program is especially for elementary school-aged children!  Keep track of how many minutes you read. For every 5 hours of reading, we will give you a prize or entry into a prize drawing. Everyone that completes 15 hours of reading throughout the summer will be invited to an end-of-the-summer CARNIVAL!

These programs continue throughout the months of June and July. Register any time before the end of the program to join in the fun! Be sure to look and listen for more information about these free summer programs. We look forward to seeing you "Fizz! Boom! Read!" your way through the summer.

For more information or questions please contact Sarah Beth at 580-7290.
