ZOIE, THE LIBRARY DOG:
Did you know we have a celebrity in our midst?
As I begin writing this newsletter, Zoie, the library dog, is getting ready to be prepped, pampered and prepared for a photo shoot on Monday. She has been invited to appear in a future edition of 501 Lifemagazine.
Zoie was adopted by our Director, Karen, in December of 2017 from Fuzzy Hearts, a local animal charity. She is six years old and has been coming to the library with Karen since she was adopted—it is definitely her happy place!
She will be in the June edition of 501 Life. We’ll have copies in the library, so stop by, meet Zoie, and maybe even get a pawtograph!
SUMMER READING PROGRAM 2019:

TEE IT UP FOR LITERACY GOLF TOURNAMENT:
This year marked our 11th tournament, and we had a wonderful time! The weather held except for the wind gusts, which had us literally holding down the fort so that supplies did not go flying.
Eighteen teams signed up, and we gave out some great raffle prizes and cooked some great burgers with cheese and grilled onions. David Byard provided a wonderful array of snacks and drinks to nourish the volunteers and golfers throughout the day. We’d like to offer a huge thank you to all the sponsors, players and volunteers who participated in the event. We deeply appreciate your contributions to the library. We are a 501c3 charitable organization, so when tax time rolls around, remember that your entry fee is tax deductible!
The last meeting of the Readers Group before the summer break will be on Friday, June 21st at 10 am in the Library. The book this month is My Dear Hamiltonby Stephanie Dray.
Everyone is welcome, and you may join or listen to the discussion even if you have not read the book.
