We Are So Much Larger Than Our Walls questions@heyworthlibrary.com

Newsletter ~ July 22, 2015

The Heyworth Public Summer reading program is over with 102 children completing 10 hours of reading, and with most kids reading even more and winning other prize drawings. We also enjoyed giving away 40 prizes to teens and adults. That is 40 different winners as well! We could not do this without the tremendous support of our local businesses!

Summer is hardly over and our stock of new summer reads are still flooding in. We have many new titles and authors to choose from this summer. Also give a try to our free eBooks, downloadable audiobooks and music with our free apps this summer. See our website at heyworthlibrary.com for more information. We would be happy to walk you through how to set these up on your device. Call and make an appointment today.

Upcoming Programs:

July 27          Monday Evening Book Club, One Good Dog by Susan Wilson, 4th Mondays at 6:30 p.m.

It’s still fall 🎃🎃🎃 mark your calendar for this treat at the library.
Have you picked up your copy of The Crucible by Arthur Miller? Ann is a direct descendant of two persons accused of being witches executed during the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. She also had a third relative who was condemned but not hanged. One of these descendants was Rebecca Towne Nurse, a character in Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible. Join the Heyworth Public Library in reading The Crucible in October and hearing Ann's fascinating family study. Multiple copies will be available for checkout during October at the circulation desk.
Fall Animals y’all is the topic tonight at Family Storytime. Be sure to sign up as this program is popular and supplies are limited to 25.
