Summer is finally in full swing and for many people that means needing a place to cool off for a while. The Kearney branch is proud to offer programs for people of all ages, tables and sofas for reading and studying, and some awesome music to get you through the hot summer days. If you want to try something new, give these albums a whirl.

I don’t know about you, but when I read a book that I really, really like, I envision it as a movie. In my head, I cast actors, design sets, stitch costumes, and hire a director. I think we all know the thrill (and the fear) that comes when a favorite book is turned into a movie. But did you realize that there are plenty of people out there who read a book and hear music? Oh, they cast actors, design sets, stitch costumes, and hire a director in their heads, too, but they also write songs.
