Thoughts from the PiCkLe...


 By Inger Koppenhaver

        The summer season is almost here and with it comes a lot of new opportunities at the library.

PiCkLe Readers, our library’s book club, has decided to meet throughout the summer for the first time since it’s inception almost two-and-half years ago.  They will meet June 1, July 6, and August 3.  
The reading club has also chosen to sponsor a “board book” drive at the library. To make the library more accessible to children ages two and younger, the club and the community are invited to donate their favorite board book, made of cardboard pages. Individuals can bring their donated books to the library before the June 1 meeting or any time through out the month of June.
  The June 1 book club meeting will begin at 7 pm with the discussion of the book, The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella.  In this book, a workaholic attorney finds herself in the middle of a career crisis.  One thing leads to another and she is hired as a housekeeper.  Did I mention she does not even know how to turn on the oven?  The story is supposed to be a light summer read with humor to boot!  Those interested in joining the book club may talk to Rolane Christofferson at the library about checking out the book.
The summer reading program for children begins Tuesday, June 2 from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m.  We will be making paper with Kevin Layton from the Custer County Art and Heritage Center.  All children that will be entering first grade through sixth grade are welcome to attend.  
Hope to see you all this summer at the Library!
