Adult Summer Reading Program Party

Sadly, at the end of July we will be saying goodbye to the Adult Summer Reading Program. But, before we say farewell, those who finished the program (read three books) will have a great time at the India’s Karma Con Party on July 28.  Instead of the popular Break-Out rooms we will be breaking in, to the Taj Mahal. Remember to return all prize entry slips, turn-in all book reviews, and RSVP for the party by July 27 before 5:00 PM. We will have the final prize drawing for the Kindle Fire at the Final Party.

July Movie Night

Adults will be watching the historical docu/drama movie, Good Night, and Good Luck starring David Strathaim, Patricia Clarkson, and George Clooney. When Senator Joseph McCarthy begins his foolhardy campaign to root out Communists in America, CBS News journalist and radio broadcaster, Edward R. Murrow, dedicates himself to exposing the atrocities being committed by McCarthy's Senate "investigation."  Sign-up at the front desk to reserve your copy today!
