Dream Big Read...

Our Dream Big, Read summer reading program was a great success with over 20 children enrolled. Each week we highlighted a book based on our nighttime theme and followed with games and crafts. We made spaceship launchers, owls, dream catchers and more. We even got to eat ice pops on the lawn on one particular hot day thanks to one of our moms
. As we wrapped up our program each child got a goodie bag to take home. As a special event for our reading program kids and the community we had naturalists from the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center present "Creatures of the Night". It was a fun and informative night as they showed us an opossum, a porcupine, and an owl. At least 70 people survived the heat that night and were refreshed with owl s'mores snacks afterwards. A huge thank you for all those who made the event possible. Stay tuned for more details on our upcoming fall reading program.

What Have You Been Reading?

I would love to hear what you are reading this summer, so I can put together a list for our community. They can be novels, nonfiction, biography, anything. Drop me a line through my email at rumneylibrary@roadrunner.com and tell me title(s) and why you would recommend the book or not. EASY! I'll even include some staff picks for you in the same list. Thanks for your help. Susan

We've had a busy summer...

It's hard to believe that we are in the midst of August and that September is right around the corner. We've had a busy summer here at BGM with our Summer Reading Program, Dream Big READ in full swing. Almost 700 items were borrowed in July and 535 people visited our building. If you haven't visited us lately, take a look at our blog www.rumneylibrary.blogspot.com , ‘friend’ us on Facebook, and stop by for a visit. We'll look forward to seeing you.
