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.
