What’s the Teen & Adult Summer Reading Program?

  1. Choose a book to read or an activity to do from the colored genre and activity categories sheet available at the Library.
  2. Earn a Jenga block that corresponds to the color of the book or activity completed.  Each Jenga block earned  = 1 ticket in a prize drawing at the end of the program.  Completed Adult and Teen worksheets also earn a Jenga block and a Ticket.
  3. Build your own Jenga creation. Win prizes in the drawing.

Next Book Club Pick – date to be decided

New York socialite Caroline Ferriday has her hands full with her post at the French consulate and a new love on the horizon. But Caroline’s world is forever changed when Hitler’s army invades Poland in September 1939—and then sets its sights on France.

An ocean away from Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, senses her carefree youth disappearing as she is drawn deeper into her role as courier for the underground resistance movement. In a tense atmosphere of watchful eyes and suspecting neighbors, one false move can have dire consequences.

For the ambitious young German doctor, Herta Oberheuser, an ad for a government medical position seems her ticket out of a desolate life. Once hired, though, she finds herself trapped in a male-dominated realm of Nazi secrets and power.

The lives of these three women are set on a collision course when the unthinkable happens and Kasia is sent to Ravensbrück, the notorious Nazi concentration camp for women. Their stories cross continents—from New York to Paris, Germany, and Poland—as Caroline and Kasia strive to bring justice to those whom history has forgotten.

Build a Better World

1. Registration for Summer Reading 2017 begins on Wednesday, May 24th for Pre-school and Thursday, May 25th for everyone else (Elementary, Teens, and Adults). This summer’s theme is “Build a Better World”. 2., 3., 4. Library Volunteers are Building a Better World. Kim Foucher has found and organized lots of fun activities to go with the Summer Reading Program. Kaitlyn Fryer & Gloria Brawdy are busy making hand-made bunting to liven up the library. Tracy Watson keeps up organizing boxes of book donations the community has generously donated. Tracy has been cataloging books that are headed to the annual What the Hay Book Sale. This is going to be the best book sale ever! 5. Today the Judith Basin County Free Library began to Build a Better Library. Ground was broke today!
