Thank you to everyone who had their picture taken with the library’s 25′ Libby balloon! It was a great time! Checkout all of the pictures on our facebook page.
What do art theft, forest fires, chemistry, and murder have in common? If you said things that I participated in during my college years, you are no longer my friend (but you are also not very far off the mark.) All kidding aside, these are some of the subjects of books that will be discussed in Davenport Public Library’s new non-fiction book club, “Truth Be Told.” The goal of Truth Be Told Book Club is to offer a variety of books that span the Dewey Decimal System. This is a great group to join if you currently a member of another book club and you’d like to branch out, or if you are new to book clubs and are a fan of non-fiction. If you’re curious about the titles we’ll be reading, I have images of the book jackets below.
Spaces are limited and registration is required for this FREE book club. Call 563.326.7832 or visit www.davenportpubliclibrary.com to register.
Kids of all ages, kickoff your summer fun at the Fairmount Branch Library (3000 N. Fairmount Street) with the Summer Reading Kickoff Carnival on Saturday, June 4 from noon to 4 p.m.! Play games, win fun prizes, knock one of the teen volunteers into the dunk tank, and signup for the “One World, Many Stories” Summer Reading Program. All of these great activities and more are FREE for the entire family!
When you need a little break from all of the fun and excitement visit the FRIENDS Bookstore for some real bargains, then stop across the hall at Cam’s Coffee House for fabulous food and drinks! Just think, you get entertainment, fun, check-out library materials, and sign-up for the summer reading program all for FREE and then buy a book and have lunch for around $5.00! No where else in the Quad Cities can you get all of this excitement for such a great deal!
Kids and teens receive a free book for their half-way prize and the first 1600 finishers (total of all age groups combined) receive a FREE summer reading t-shirt. Also, upon completion enter your name into a drawing for a chance to win an i-Pod Touch, a Color Nook, or a giant stuffed tiger! The summer reading program ends August 4 at the Bix Porch Party, featuring Don Estes and the Prairie Area Ramblers, clowns, a stilt walker, and much more!
