Reading programs wind down at the library

Literally Yours

By Sara Gregory

For the past month, R.E.A.D’s (of the Agent 009 program) Junior Agents have been hard at work to solve the identity of the library Mole. Time, though, is growing short. Soon the Agent 009 program will be finished. Junior Agents must help catch the mole before it’s too late.

The final two clues will be posted tomorrow. Junior Agents will have until Aug. 18 to figure out the identity of the mole. A box and slips of paper will be available for Junior Agents to submit their accusations. Junior Agents are also encouraged to solve the identity of Agent 009. Prizes will be given to the Junior Agents who discover the identities.

The wind-up party for Agent 009 will be held Thursday, Aug. 20. With prizes for discovering the mole, top reader draw and prizes for all Junior Agents. Since it isn’t a party without either, we’ll be playing games and serving fantastic party snacks.

This Monday will be the final day for Small Fries. We invite all kids who have participated to join us for a wind-up party. Along with a games and stories, we will be visited by a very special guest.

We would like invite everyone to the last Bedtime Stories of the summer. Next Thursday will be the final Bedtime Stories before a brief hiatus. Crystal will restart Bedtime Stories at its regular time, p.m., in early September.

We would like to thank teens who came to this summer’s teen program, the Summer Spy Society. Along with Shaun, we had enormous fun with this summer’s teens. We hope that all teens who participated enjoyed this summer’s program as much as we did.

Though Summer Spy Society has finished, teen programs are not over. Shaun will continue Teen Night (Wednesdays at 6 p.m.) for the rest of the summer and school year.

On Aug. 29, Shaun will host a night of gaming. Game Over will run from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.. This event is open to teens fifteen teens who have participated in past teen programs.

The Stettler Friends of the Library are pleased to be hosting the First Annual Friends of the Library Giant Book Sale. For the past year, we have been collecting discards and donations in the deep recesses of the library. In early October, stacks and stacks of these books will be drug out. The sale will be held Friday, Oct. 2 and Saturday, Oct. 3. If you wish to contribute to the sale, we will happily accept gently used book donations. We do, though, ask that you please do not donate encyclopaedia sets.
