Hup Cap Artists

 

Ansa Thomas, Priyanka Ramanathan and Sudarshan Sundar display their unique Hub Cap art work.  This week's winner of The Book in the Bottle is Tara Patale for The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells.  We still have Renaissance Tickets for Reading Club Members.  It's not too late to join and win a ticket.  Our current Book in a Bottle has no entries, so I will give you some very strong hints.  The title of the book can be found on one of the Reading lists, and the title also appears on the bottom of the bottle.  See if you can play detective and select the title and author.  Good Luck!

Teen Reading Club --- It's Not Too Late to Join--- Free Renaissance Tickets!

 

Under Teens on our website is a simple sign-up for the Teen Reading Club (Grades 7-12).  You can read just one book this summer or dozens; there is no requirement.  For each book you read you get a chance for our raffle bag of great prizes. 

We have a weekly "Book in a Jar" at the Adult Reference Desk, and each week you finish reading  a book you can pick up a prize at the Adult Reference Desk.  The week of July 28 we have free tickets to the New York Renaissance Faire.  Don't miss out.  This ticket has a value of $24!  So join today and do a little reading for great prizes.  Last week's winner of "Book in a Jar" was Anetha Abraham who correctly identified the book  No More Dead Dogs by Gordon Korman.  She won a movie pass for the AMC Theater at the Palisades Mall.

 

Summer Reading Club Winner

Last week Thomas Calletto won a movie ticket to the West Nyack Mall in our "Book in a Bottle." His correct entry was Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins.  Remember that the winner is drawn from all the correct answers.  It's not too late to join the Teen Summer Reading Club and win weekly prizes including a free ticket to the Renaissance Faire.  We also have programs including crafts, food, movies, games and laser tag.  You can sign up on the left side of this page and also report online.  Prizes will be at the Adult Reference Desk.

 

Elrond and friends attended the showing of The Desolation of Smaug last week.  Afterwards everyone enoyed a spirited game of laser tag in the library after hours.  We will have another evening of games, pizza, and film on Thursday, July 24 starting at 7 pm.  Our film will be episodes of Sherlock from the BBC series.  Please register for this event.
