Summer’s drawing to a close and school’s about to start up again, which means that the library’s going to be getting some great new books for you to read! Now you can start off the school year with some fantastic books such as “Now You See Her”, “Cool Summer”, and “Back From Beyond”!! And don’t forget to come down to the library before Monday, August 1st, to tell Donna about the new books that you’ve read to enter a drawing for a chance to win a gift card to Hastings! I’ll be posting the winners on Tuesday, so good luck everybody! As always, you can see the library has some fun new things for you to do. Until next time, read on! ~Kirstan DeVore
This summer, like the previous ones, we had a summer reading program here at the Inman Public Library. Throughout the past 6 six weeks Dawn Froese, Cecelia Wheeler, and Donna Sallee hosted this fun exciting weekly activity where the kids could visit the library, listen to a story, have a snack, and learn about other countries (hence the name, “One World, Many Stories“). They also had tickets; which you could earn by coming every Thursday to the class, reading a hundred pages (or an hour), sharing a book report, or telling an original story! On August 1st there will be a drawing and the children who’s names are pulled will receive a gift card to Hastings. Read on! ~Kirstan DeVore
Story Treasure Time
The Library is once again planning it’s annual book sale on Santa Fe days ( Sept. 25). We have a nice selection of books and videos for our sale this year. We have an extra nice selection of childrens books . All donations will go to purchase new materials for the Library. We will be open 9:00- 1:00.
Story time for ages 3 – Kindergarten will be starting Sept 10th and continue till May 2011. Storytelling will be experienced in a variety of ways: books, songs, puppetry, finger plays, story boards, videos, etc. One of our goals will be to expose your child to a variety of literature and themes. Storyteller is Dawn Froese. Please register at the library . For questions call the Library. Upon registration, you will receive information regarding themes we plan to incorporate into our program.
The Library has received a large donation of DVD’s from a local patron. We now have in our collection a vast selection of civil war, western and war movies. We have almost a complete collection of John Wayne movies. We also received several Elvis movies. Stop in the library today and look them over. Check-out is for one week and FREE……….
We are currently accepting used movies and books to be sold at our April book sale for a small donation, so anyone who has any books they don’t need or have been read before, or any movies they have seen before and want to share with the rest of the community, be sure to stop over and bring your used movies and books. After all, books and movies (and the wealth of knowledge and entertainment) that comes with them is a lot like love… for it to be experienced fully it has to be given away….. (ok… I know that comment went along with Valentine’s Day, but it is still February…) And on that same note, all proceeds made from the book sale go to purchase more books, so be assured that your donation is being used to provide people with more entertainment….. So come and enjoy the sale, no matter what your interest, you are bound to find something you will enjoy!!
This is the new website’s first ever movie review and I am going to be doing a unique critique on the movie ‘Fireproof’ Kirk Cameron stars in this uplifting, faith-affirming drama about a firefighter who goes to extreme measures to save people’s lives. But as his career is doing well, his marriage seems to be crumbling and headed for disaster. Caleb Holt, played by Cameron, is blind to his wife’s requests that he contribute more to their marriage then he has been doing. Apparently, dabbling in his own selfish desires is more important than protecting and caring for his wife’s heart. When a turning point in the movie arrives, Caleb’s father sends him a journal of tasks to accomplish to rescue his wife’s heart in the span of 40 days. What follows is a stark and powerful reminder that a house built on sand is doomed to be washed away, but a house (and a marriage) built on the solid foundation of Jesus Christ will be ‘Fireproof’.
Story Treasure Time at the Library is starting Monday, September 15th. This program is for children ages 3- kindergarten. Storyteller will once again be Gail Renner. For more information, weekly subject lists, or to register, call or visit the Library.
