Looking for something fun for your teens and older kids to do while they’re waiting for school to begin? Bring them to the library on Saturday, August 11, at 12:30 p.m. for our monthly Teen Space DIY program. We’ll show them how to make a cute box out of perler beads to hold paperclips, pencils, and other small desk items.

For the younger kids, there’s our wonderful afternoon storytimes at 4 p.m. on Tuesdays. They can listen to a story and do a fun craft related to the story. This Tuesday, August 14, we will be reading beach stories to them. Next Tuesday, August 21, we will be talking about the tooth fairy!

Our next How It’s Done adult craft time will be on Saturday, August 18, at 12:30 p.m. and we will be making leaf bowls. All it takes is a little clay, some pretty leaves and a fun and easy technique to create unique bowls that work great to hold office supplies, coins, or other small items.

Our monthly Paint @ the Library adult painting class will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 25. We will be painting a horse. Space is limited, sign up today.

New at the library – “Cottage by the Sea” by Debbie Macomber. Annie Marlow has been put through the wringer, and now she need someplace to recover. For her, the most comforting place in the world is Oceanside, a small town in the Pacific Northwest, where she spent many happy summers with her family. Once there, her spirit begins to heal, thanks no small part to the kind residents who take her under their wings. Keaton, a local painter, helps her to fix up her little rental cottage by the sea, and her prickly landlord Mellie is someone that Annie is determined to befriend, while teenaged Britt is hiding a terrible secret. Soon, though, trouble strikes, threatening the tranquility she’s found, and she has to make a choice: take the opportunity of a lifetime, or remain safe in the arms of the man who loves her.

Well, that’s all for now – see you at the library!
