BOOK LOGO (628x640)The Webster Groves Public Library will start sign-ups for the Adult Summer Reading Program on June 1st.  Everyone with a Webster Groves (or Municipal Library Consortium card) 18 or over is encouraged to sign up!

The theme this summer is ‘Dig Into Something New.’  This is a great chance to try out authors and genres that you usually don’t read! Each week we’ll have a different display featuring two genres along with a list of suggested reading.  Keep up with our blog throughout the summer for our lists of recommended reading.

For every book you read this through August 15 (up to 5 books total) you’ll be entered in the grand prize drawing for a Kindle Fire.  Kindle Fire

Throughout the summer we’ll be holding special programs including:

Don’t You Just Love a Mystery?

We invite you to go beyond Agatha Christie and discover new and local Missouri mystery writers.  We’ll be discussing a variety of styles, from thrillers, futuristic, humorous, and historical to cozy mysteries, so you’re sure to find something you like!  Attendees will have the chance to win signed copies from some of these exciting authors.  Light refreshments will be provided.

Dig Into Pinterest

Come learn about the social media site Pinterest, a site for ‘collecting and organizing the things you love!’  We’ll walk you through the basics to set up your  profile and start pinning.  Reserve your space today to guarantee a library computer for the class by calling 314. 961. 3784.  No need for registration if you plan on bringing a personal laptop or tablet.
