July 18th Newspaper Column

As I’m typing there are shrieks and screams coming from the library meeting room. Not to worry, though – it’s the sound of kids discovering just how cool chemistry can be!

We are entering the home stretch of our summer reading program, but there is still plenty of time to catch a great program and earn rewards for reading. And some of our kid-centric activities will keep going into August (think LEGO club and story time). Check the events calendar on the library web site for details – www.greenlakelibrary.org

That LEGO club meets on Thursday mornings at 10:00 for about an hour. And Friday morning story times in July (also at 10:00) have had visits from a special guest – Harley, an 8-year-old sweetie who is training to be a therapy dog.

Next week brings a couple of special human visitors and a bunch of special critter visitors. Monday morning’s program features naturalist David Stokes, and it’s a sure bet he will be bringing some critters along for his 10:00 visit. It’s a great chance to learn about, and get up close and personal with, some four (or more) – footed friends.

Every Tuesday afternoon the library hosts a bible study group, and this week they are having a special speaker all the way from Northern Ireland. Everyone is invited to hear "From Wild Child to Worker for God." From the group: Elaine Price, from Banbridge, Northern Ireland, will share her testimony about how God delivered her from the turmoil of the streets and gave her the peace of Jesus Christ. She will tell of her activities as a sympathizer of the Northern Irish conflicts, and how God brought change to a life of uncertainty, misdirection, and unruliness.

And Wednesday morning brings a visit from Baraboo, Wisconsin based children’s author Pamela Quinlan. Pamela will be reading from her books and signing copies beginning at 10:00.

I hope you can join us!
