Newsletter ~ June 18, 2015

One hundred and ten is a record for signups to read for prizes at the library during the first week of our summer reading program! We are excited so many kids are reading this summer to keep up their skills for school in the fall. Parents can sign up their children 3 yr. – 6th grade to read for prizes at any time through July 18. Students going into 7th grade on up through adult do not need to sign up, all we ask is that they checkout a book, magazine, or audiobook. Upon checkout we will give you a ticket to place your name and phone number to be entered in a drawing of your choice. We have seventeen different prizes for our teens – adults all due to our generous local businesses supporting summer reading!

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.
