Kids Bug Bingo, Storytime, and a Picnic

July is National Picnic Month and National Hot Dog Month. This is a fantastic time to have some summer fun with the kids! I’m hoping to have this event at the park behind the Catholic church. However, if there are reasons we are unable to, such as the weather, we will go to the library. There will be a mini picnic with hot dogs, buns, ketchup, water, grapes, and watermelon cubes. The kids will eat during storytime. Afterward, we get to play Bug Bingo. I’m sure we will be swatting at the real deal while we play. Books will be given away to our little Bingo winners. Sign-up is required and can be done by sending Facebook messages, calling, or stopping in the library. We will not take names until Tuesday, July 4th. If you have any questions about the event or what age the children should be to attend, please call or message us on Facebook. 748-7332. Thanks!

July Adult Book Club

Join the Adult Book Club! It’s free and it’s fun!
They meet at the library on the last Wednesday of each month from 4:30 to 5:30.
July’s book will be, ‘Hang the Moon’ by Jeanette Walls.
Sallie Kincaid is the daughter of the biggest man in a small town, the charismatic Duke Kincaid. Born at the turn of the 20th century into a life of comfort and privilege, Sallie remembers little about her mother who died in a violent argument with the Duke. By the time she is just eight years old, the Duke has remarried and had a son, Eddie. While Sallie is her father’s daughter, sharp-witted and resourceful, Eddie is his mother’s son, timid and cerebral. When Sallie tries to teach young Eddie to be more like their father, her daredevil coaching leads to an accident, and Sallie is cast out.
Nine years later, she returns, determined to reclaim her place in the family. That’s a lot more complicated than Sallie expected, and she enters a world of conflict and lawlessness. Sallie confronts the secrets and scandals that hide in the shadows of the Big House, navigates the factions in the family and town, and finally comes into her own as a bold, sometimes reckless bootlegger.
