News from the Pierson Library June 7, 2012

Gardening help needed
Ideas bloom at the library year round but flowers only bloom in the spring and summer. Would you like to help the library gardens look their best this summer? We’re looking for a couple of volunteers to assist Lisa Williams, friend of the library and master gardener, this season. No green thumbs required, just a passion for plants and the library. If you’re interested, please contact the library director, Kip Roberson at 985-5124 or via email at Thanks!
Claim your Lost and Found items
School will be out soon. Before then, take the time to come in and claim your items left behind in the library youth area. Over the past weeks several items have been left behind at the end of the day. Our Lost and Found boasts a backpack containing a fleece, two insulated lunch bags (one bears the name Spencer), a green water bottle, two shirts, a Trader Joe’s shopping bag with lunch items in it, and a couple of winter items in a small Nature Conservancy bag. We also found a green jacket left behind after the Howard Frank Mosher discussion last month. Get your missing things while you can. At the end of June, appropriate unclaimed items will be donated to Goodwill.
Looking for ideas for your next book?
Do you want to know what books the Pierson Library staff members recommend? This month’s featured book display will give you the answers. You might be surprised. Check out our collection of staff members’ picks on the monthly display shelves to the right of the new books.
Play Scrabble this Thursday
Every first and third Thursday of the month you are invited to join fellow wordsmiths for a rousing game of Scrabble. Scrabble boards are open from 1 to 4 pm. Come for as long as you can. Bring a friend. Be prepared for a challenge and lots of fun. The next Scrabble afternoon is this afternoon, Thursday, June 7.
Reminder: two popular ongoing programs will be taking the summer off. Both Story Time and Magic Group are now on vacation. We’ll let you know when they will start up again in the fall. Thanks for all of your support for both programs. A special thank you goes to the wonderful volunteers who help run these programs. Stay tuned to next week’s column for information about the summer reading program and the big kick-off event.
