On July 11 John Feldmann will be here to show us lots of musical instruments, like guitars, a ukulele, harmonica and fiddle. Plus you’ll be able to make your own instruments too! If you haven’t signed up for summer reading yet, come on in and get readin’ and rockin’ to the rhythm!
The “Sock Rockerz” will be here Sat. June 27 at 11am. Come with your dancing shoes (and your crazy socks) on!
Did you know that the Germantown Library is a designated Clinton County Legal Self-Help Center? This means you can get access here to information about Illinois law and forms you may need to represent yourself in a legal dispute. Our librarians will help you go online and navigate through the self-help site. There are videos and other materials focusing on things like simple divorce, child support, landlord/tenant matters and information on more than 25 different areas of the law. You can print court forms for free. We have brochures and links to other free legal resources as well. The website is http://clinton.illinoislegalaid.org and may be accessed at any time and from any place the internet is available.
Kids, it’s almost time for our summer reading program, Read to the Rhythm! You can sign up starting Monday, June 22 or any time after that. It’s fun and free, for anyone age 4 and up. You can come in whenever you want to check out books, read and turn in your reading log to earn prizes.

Our local 4-H Clovers and Cloverettes have a display here at the library during the month of June for Dairy Month. Our display case is filled with information and photographs of dairy farms, equipment and animals. In addition, they brought lots of recipes, pens, magnets, stickers and bookmarks, all about dairy. These are free, so come in and help yourself.
Did you know that the library has fishing poles to lend? You can check out a rod and reel combo for 1 week on your library card and it’s accompanied by a great “tackle pack” that you get to keep. The pack contains fish identification guides, lures and how-to instructions for baiting your hook, restringing the line and removing your fish. If you’re having company, would like to take the kids fishing, but don’t have enough poles, remember the library. We’ve got you covered.
