Labor-Day-images-2014
Labor Day traditionally signals the end of summer (learn more about the holiday by clicking the link or checking out one of our books on the history of the day). We won’t have reading prizes until winter again, but don’t worry, we have plenty of book recommendations to keep your mind sharp!  Why not try one of these suggestions collected by TED, from people like Rashida Jones and Bill Gates.  You can also check out the list they compiled last year.  They say they’re for summer reading, but we think they’re for all year. And if you read Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, and want more check out this list.

We hope you have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend and can’t wait to see you when we reopen Tuesday, September 2!

Sadly, summer is coming to the end.  August 30 is the end of young adult summer reading! Don’t forget to log your books so you can collect your prizes and raffle tickets and be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing. August 30 is also the LAST DAY to collect prizes (and log reading) so come in soon!

If you’re in the children’s summer reading program, don’t forget to come in and collect your prizes! You can no longer log your books, but hurry in to get your prizes and something new to read.

It’s the end of July, which means there are only 15 more days to log your summer reading!  While you’re doing that and picking your next selections, so you can win our great prizes and get entered in our Grand Prize drawings, here’s a fun interactive periodic table that goes with our summer reading theme!  Theme recommendations are available on our summer reading pages, and we have bookmark recommendations for adults as well.
