Registration for Summer Reading
The first day you can register for Forsyth Public Library’s “Read to the Rhythm” Summer Reading Program is Tuesday, May 26. Sign-up week continues through Saturday, May 30 for the “Pop In and Sign Up” kickoff event from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. There, you can enjoy popcorn while signing up for library and park program events. All ages are encouraged to join. We will start off our spectacular summer events on Tuesday, June 2 with a concert from Rick Rayburn and the planting of our Youth Garden. Don’t miss out on the fun!

Calendars Have Arrived!
By now, your copy of the 2015 Summer Park and Library Program calendar should have arrived in your mailbox. Copies of the calendar are also available at the library and at Village Hall. In addition, there is a PDF file of the calendar available on the library’s website: www.forsythlibrary.com.

Why Join Summer Reading?
Children can lose up to two months of learning before school starts again in the fall. Children who read a minimum of six books over the summer months have higher test scores in both reading and math when they return to school. On top of the academic benefits, reading is a ton of fun! Help your children avoid the “summer slide” by signing them up for the summer reading program starting on May 26.

Get your Library Card in shape!
Is your library card ready for the start of the summer reading program? There is no charge to renew a library card that has expired or to get your very first library card. If you had a Forsyth card in the past but lost it, the replacement fee is $1. Adults should bring a photo ID that verifies their Forsyth address to the library. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who has a photo ID that proves residency. Make sure your card is ready so that you can jump into the summer reading program as soon as it begins!

Large Print Books
Did you think that large print books were made only for the visually impaired? Think again! No thicker than their regular print counterparts, large print books can be the perfect answer for those who get headaches when reading late at night after a day full of eye strain, or for those who find regular print books just too hard to see from three feet away while exercising. Forsyth Public Library carries more than 3,600 books in its large print section, including the latest releases. Browse our selection and see what a difference large print can make!

Tech Club
Tech Club meets on Tuesday, May 19 from 10-11:30 a.m. This group is for adults who have questions about their electronic devices and/or who like to learn about fun new ways to utilize them. This month, Tech Club will showcase apps that monitor or improve your health. Remember to bring your iPad or iPhone with you to the meeting. New members are always welcome.

Library Butterflies
The long-awaited caterpillars have finally arrived at the library! Soon they will begin their fascinating metamorphosis into butterflies. Take a peek when you stop by the library and see how much they’ve changed. Don’t forget, because soon the opportunity to watch them grow will fly away! 
