Book Talk Bits

Hooray! What a summer we are planning for Adults. Those with I pad, Kindle, Nooks, or other e-reader device or I phone. We are calling on you to be in the spot light sharing your book with other readers in the book talk.  All you will need to do is tell a snippet about the book you have read on your device. Do not tell all just enough to get us interested in the book. Each person attending will share their own book. We will do this on the Second Monday in June, July, and August at 2:00 PM. Don’t be shy it’s all about sharing your love for books.  We will call ourselves “The Techie Book Invaders.” Interested persons contact Gwendolyn here at the Northwest Branch Library.

Dates: June 10, 2013, July 8, 2013, August 12, 2013 @2:00 PM

 

Asian-Pacific Heritage Month

Turtle Transition

Aquatic TurtleOur Turtles are transitioning to a new home the Friday, May 10th. We love Big Mike and Raphael but they have grown too much to keep in the small tank we have here at Northwest.  Our space for tanks is limited at the library so they will be going home with me at the end of this week.

Big Mike is already in his new home and Raphael will be joining him on Friday. I know we'll all miss them at the library but they are more comfortable in a larger environment with more space to swim and move freely. 

Be sure to stop in and say goodbye to Raphael before he joins Big Mike in their new home!
