Librarian's Corner

Summer is here! Are you ready to Spark Your Imagination? Spark the Dragon invites you to Summer Reading 2024! We’re transforming our library into a Fairy Tale wonderland where you can visit all summer long to play, attend programs and pick out great books to read.

The fun Kicks Off on June 26. Drop in between 5:30 & 7:30 to get your registration packets, play games, make crafts and meet some friendly critters from the Reptile Nook! We know summer plans hinge on the weather. That’s why summer storytimes are all drop-in. Join Mrs. Molly for great books, songs, crafts and activities. Visit every week to pick out new books and find where Spark the Dragon is hiding in our children’s room!

We’ve got lots of special guests coming this summer to teach and entertain us, including the birds of Blue Moon Raptors and Mother Goose herself! The kids of 4H will visit with fun hands-on STEM activities. Try your hand at Calligraphy or learn to Play the Ukulele. See an exciting demonstration of Fencing, create some Fairy Tale Cartoons or a Glitter Dream Jar. Teens can test their knowledge of Fairy Tale Trivia and make a Fairy House or an Origami Box for their treasures. And all are invited to our Summer Reading Finale on July 31st. Complete the Readers Are Leaders challenge to win a free t-shirt and get a chance to be Selectman For a Day. We’ll enjoy a Pizza Party, give out prizes, and settle in to be amazed by the wizardry of magician Christopher Hurlbert.

Neither Here Nor There
by Bill Bryson

Book Cover

Bryson brings his unique brand of humour as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet and heads for Europe. Travelling with Stephen Katz he wanders from Hammerfest in the far north, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. As he makes his way round this incredibly varied continent, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before.
