Adult Summer Reading Program
June 1-July 31

Celebrate all the ways Libraries Rock this summer! The Adult Summer Reading Program contest will begin June 1st and end July 31st. Every library book you read or listen to (including Hoopla and OverDrive) is eligible for an entry to win one of the prize baskets that will be on display. Entries can also be earned by attending adult programs held at the library during June and July. Bi-weekly contests will also be held, with entries available behind the Reference Desk.

"Oh, That Can't Be Comfortable!"
Saturday, July 21, 1:00-3:00 p.m.

Ever think about lacing yourself into a corset? Or slipping into a set of wide circular hoops? This presentation takes a look at how women dressed, highlighting both the fashion and function of every piece worn. More than just pretty frills, we seek to learn why women dressed the way they did. Was there a deeper meaning behind those yards of fabric? Original garments, reproduction pieces, accessories, and more give colorful insight to a time when the unmentionables were just that - unmentionable! Traci Manning, Curator of Education from the Mahoning Valley Historical Society will be presenting this program. Registration is requested by calling the library or stopping by the Circulation Desk.

What is Up in the Late Summer Sky?
Friday, August 17, 7:30-8:30 p.m.; dismiss to parking lot

The astronomy program will begin in the Salchow Room at 7:30 p.m. and last for approximately one hour. Then we will dismiss to the South Parking Lot, if the sky is clear, to use a variety of telescopes. Four planets (Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Venus) will be visible in August and the first quarter moon will also be out. The telescope viewing is handicap accessible. We will be using an enhanced camera on one of the telescopes so those who cannot reach a regular eyepiece can still enjoy the views through the telescope. Registration is requested by calling the library or stopping by the Circulation Desk.
