With the new school year beginning, we are once again enjoying visits by classes from Germantown Elementary and Siblings Day Care. We really do love reading to the kids and helping them find just the right book. If you are a student (or have a student) and are wondering how to find Accelerated Reader books at a certain level, thinking about trying eBooks or would like to request items from other Illinois libraries, please let us know if you have questions. We’re always glad to help spread the joy of reading!
This Saturday, August 15, the library will be represented in the Spassfest Parade by several of our library trustees. Watch for the pickup truck with Germantown Library signs on it and be ready to catch some of the goodies we’ll be tossing. Hope to see you there!
As a new school year starts, we’d like to ask all parents to be sure to let us know if you have a new email address, have dropped your home phone, moved, etc. We need up-to-date records to be sure we can reach you if your child has a late book or we’ve received a book that your child requested. Just email us at email@example.com or stop in and give us any changes. Thanks!
We recently completed shifting our entire adult collection, so if you have trouble locating your favorite author, just ask and we’ll be glad to help. We’ve weeded titles that weren’t being read and donated them to St. Joseph’s Hospital for their book sale. This allowed us to get most of our adult books off the top and bottom-most shelves, so they’ll be much easier to see and reach. We hope you’ll enjoying browsing the collection even more now!
The library will be closed Tuesday, July 28 for the St. Boniface Church Picnic. See you there!
Our summer reading program, Read to the Rhythm, is almost over! Last event is Sat. July 25 at 11am and it’s going to be a Beach Party. Get ready to make grass skirts and leis. We’ll learn to do the hula and the limbo, plus play some games and everyone who attends gets a prize! You might even win Cardinals tickets. You may keep reading to earn prizes from the program til the end of July. So keep reading to the rhythm!
Do you love Facebook? Or at least use it? Don’t forget to look us up and like us for the latest events, happenings and new materials. Just go to Facebook and search for Germantown Public Library.
The library will be closed Sat. July 4 to celebrate Independence Day. Have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
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!
