Summer Reading week 3

Now we are hitting a real stride with our Summer Reading. It so wonderful to see our summer families return to us. Some of you we haven’t seen in three years and the kiddos are all grown up!

This week we have our usual outdoor story time with Meredith at 11am on 7/12. Followed by a special Ocean Discoveries activity at 3:30pm with Meredith that I’m sort of sad I can’t participate in.

For the grown-ups out there, our book group will be discussing An American Marriage by Tahari Jones on Wednesday at 4pm after which the August selection will be available. That one is Detective in the Dooryard, by my friend Tim Cotton. I’ve been following his writing for years on the Bangor PD Facebook page. He’s a funny guy and this book should be great for late summer!

I have not seen many copies of Local flavors: cooking and eating from America’s farmers’ markets by Deborah Madison go out! This is our debut cookbook for our club meeting on 7/23. The idea is a group of us check out the same cookbook, then prepare something from it to share. This one features farmer’s market goodies! I hope you’ll join us – I would hate to picnic alone. Copies available now!
