library-news-June-July This edition of Library News is jam-packed with ideas for summer fun. Whether it’s losing yourself in a good book or rockin’ out during a Blockbuster Wednesday entertaining performance, summer at the library delivers smiles daily.

Summer reading starts May 23. From binkies to bifocals, we have reading programs, and incentives, you’ll love. Plus, an online bonus summer reading game. Tap into more information about Summer Reading inside this edition, or get started at summerfest.tscpl.org.

And, something to really smile about is a brand new bookmobile rolling through town starting mid-summer. See the bookmobile’s new “look” and learn about its features. A brand new collection awaits you on opening day. Stay tuned to tscpl.org for announcements about a grand opening for the new bookmobile.

Also mid-summer, an exhibit of skateboard art and culture rolls in to the Alice C. Sabatini Gallery. Learn the science behind skateboarding – and crashes – and find out how this sport fits into American Indian culture. Remember to mark your calendars for the opening of Ramp It Up: Skateboard Culture in Native America on June 28.

Find out about other art opportunities – librarian-led and more DIY – for teens and grownups throughout the summer, including Science Meets Fiber Art June 21.

And in this issue, we help you find Zen in your home. Spend a few hot summer days clearing the clutter from your home. We’ve got books on organization, from reclaiming your closet spaces to hosting a garage sale.
