Good afternoon,

Wow! welcome to July. We're more than half-way through the year, and more than half-way through Bookworm! There is still plenty of time to submit your Book Reviews and log your BINGOs though. If you haven't signed up, we can help you do so next time you're in.

This month we're looking forward to making ice cream in a bag, and salad dressing with herbs from our library garden. We'll also welcome the cast and crew of Tecumseh for our annual Sack it With Shakespeare event. And if you'd like to brush up on your computer skills, be sure to check out our Intro to Computers class, starting next week. And around the county, we have book clubs, nutrition classes, paint nights, and yoga. Join us Thursday July 26 at 5:30 in Yoctangee Park for our Bookworm Finale party.

I'm planning events for the winter now, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to drop me a line.

See you at the library!
