NEW ARRIVALS: (All quotes are from publishers’ summaries)

It seems quieter around the library this week. The summer reading programs ended last Thursday, singer Joe McDermott came, and round-up weekend is over. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have exciting things still to come. Mark your calendars for August 9th to see Dinosaur George. His program will be an evening event starting at 6:30 P.M., and it is for all ages. I’ll have more details soon, so keep watching this column and the paper in the weeks to come.
