August 2013

No Story Time until September 5th

Movie Night August 15 

I know it is not just me this year, school really does start too early! I have so much fun seeing all the kids reading in the summer, I am not ready for it to end!

Another library is joining our COOL consortium this month.  Arcanum’s (in Darke County) records will be appearing in our catalog near the end of the month.  In the meantime, holds might disappear while the migration is happening.
 

It seems that our new Returns Box on the table by the desk has been a help to the library staff this summer.  Help us to help you a little more efficiently.  Please place materials that you are returning in the box.  This has reduced our confusion and error rate a lot.


The Bookmark society will be meeting August 22nd at 6:30.  
They will be discussing Angel Harp by Michael Phillips. 

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.   John Lubbock Read more
 
Growing up, our vacation started before we left the house.  My dad never pushed to get to the destination as fast as possible.  If you are a journey not the destination person, too, try the Ohio Department of Transportations website.  In addition to information about the scenic highways in Ohio, they also provide information about the current construction projects as well.

Keep us in mind. We could use materials for ongoing projects:

Washable gluesticks and glue, Markers, Paint store gift cards painting supplies, Small cafĂ© table &/or chairs, Pool noodles, OR are you cleaning out your video supply gently used DVD's would be great.

Are  there some new technologies that you may have spotted at another library that you would like to see at Wornstaff?  Some suggestions: e-books, play-aways, Blu-ray DVD’s. Or would you like to see more new audio, more new large print?  Please let us know!
