Tech Club
Tech Club welcomes Blake Rowland from Staples on Tuesday, May 16 from 10-11:30 a.m. in the library’s conference room. Rescheduled from April, Blake is worth waiting for! For this month’s meeting, he will bring fun new technology items to show the group and will also allow time for technology troubleshooting questions. No registration is necessary, and all are welcome. 

Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio is the title for the Friday, May 19 meeting of the Bookkeepers Book Club. The author weaves the stories of two women, past and present, into a powerful story of love, loss and the ways personal connections can transcend the boundaries of time. Bookkeepers Book Club meets on the third Friday of the month at 10 a.m. All readers are welcome to attend!

Reading By Design
Summer will be here before we know it, which means it’s almost time for the library’s summer reading program, Reading By Design! Registration begins Tuesday, May 30. Race in on Saturday, June 3 from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. for the summer kickoff. You can register for summer events, as well as design and race a LEGO car down the test track! The park program will hold registration at the library that day, too. In addition, the library will demo features that make it easier to manage your library account. New this year for summer reading, all children and teens who finish the six reading levels will receive a free book. Thanks to Amanda Giles and Country Financial for sponsoring this great addition to the summer program. Remember: No one is too old or too young to be involved in the summer reading program. Start counting the time you spend reading as soon as you register so that you have the opportunity to earn fun prizes! 
