Read Around the Globe

MASH Adult Reading Club DisplayRecognize our replica of this famous signppost?  We’ve updated it with mileage estimates from Seoul to Katy, TX.  The display promotes our Read Around the Globe program for Adults.  There’s still time to log in your books for the "7 Continent Reading Challenge." Pick up a Reading Passport and record books featuring each continent.  The book may be written by an author from a certain continent or prominently feature settings or characters from that continent.  Have your passport stamped for each continent you “visit” to be eligible for prize drawings.  For reading suggestions pick up one of our Continent bookmarks.   This is part of our Adult Summer Reading Club.

We the People Display


History comes to life in 1776, one of the books on our “We the People” display. This awesome title is filled with exact replicas of letters and documents contained in many museums. You can hold the battle map for Trenton, letters from George Washington or a broadsheet announcing the “Declaration of Independence.”   Each page is a treasure! 

All Aboard for the Edible Mystery Tour

 The Edible Mystery Tour Mystery Tour continued on June 30th as we ate our way through Bloodroot by Susan Wittig Albert. Herb bread, tomato pie and rosemary cookies were among the treats participants enjoyed as we discussed this book which is set in Mississippi and features family skeletons dating back to the Civil War. The tour highlights mysteries which include recipes.   Next stop on the Tour is on July 21st at 1pm for Sticks and Scones by Diana Mott Davidson. Sounds yummy!
