The 2009 Summer Reading Challenge has begun. This summer the theme is "Maine Reads." Stop by the circulation desk and pick up the list or print a copy from the library website. Each time you finish a book on the list, fill out a rating slip (also available at the circulation desk) and drop it in the box. On Friday, August 21, we'll draw two slips and award Fertile Mind Bookshop gift certificates to the names on the slips. If you'd like to discuss the books you read with others in the community, share your thoughts here. Just click on the word "Comments" at the bottom of any post and type your comments in the box provided. Click in the circle next to Name/URL and add your name, or be anonymous by clicking in that circle. I'll be adding some comments, links and other information throughout the summer, so check back occasionally to see what's new.
