The Summer Reading Program at the Camden Point Branch is underway. Although the Camden Point Branch hosts programs throughout the whole year, it is during the summer when we host programs almost every week. And yes, most of the programs are mostly attended by kids, parents, teachers and adults.
You just never know what's going to happen when you attend a program at the library. Goldie, the golden eagle escaped her kennel, and a few wild moments ensued. Don't worry, no small children were carried away! See, YOU should have been here. Operation Wildlife, www.owl-online.org, brought Goldie, and we learned many facts about eagles.

Barbara Hughes began her presentation by personifying Narcissa Whitman. “Narcissa” commenced by explaining how she was called into missionary work in 1835, and then met and married Dr. Marcus Whitman. The Whitmans, along with Henry and Eliza Spalding, traveled to Fort Walla Walla in what is now known as Washington State. Through the slide presentation, as well as the information and descriptions given by Mrs. Hughes and “Narcissa,” the audience followed Narcissa from her missionary calling to the tragic Whitman Massacre.
Binoculars and Art Kits are flying off the shelves at the Grandview Branch these days.

Infants to high schoolers can participate but the program comes to an end July 31st.

The performance of the Cool Cats Rock and Roll Accordian Band at Riverside was fun. With an audience ranging in age from a few months to senior citizens, we witnessed toe tapping, hand clapping, free style dancing and singing (remember the song. Y.M.C.A.? )
