We need your help. We have entered the “Ugly Book Return Contest” sponsored by Kingsley Library Equipment. The library with the most votes will win a brand new book return. Come on Weakley County, vote for us so you will be represented in this contest. Visit http://www.facebook.com/kingsleylibraryequipment/app_343443465714045 and click the “Like” button under Sharon Public Library’s book return and that will give us the vote. If you are on Facebook, please pass this along to your friends. When you see our book return, you will know why we need to win this contest.
We are also looking to expand our “Classic” collection. If you have any “Classics” just sitting around (and they are in good shape) and want to donate them to our library, we would be excited to receive them.
Last week’s Story Time story was “The Hungry Duckling.” Ms. Peggy did a wonderful job telling the story about the ducklings and the children enjoyed coloring and having a snack following the story. Each child also got a trip to the prize box for participating last week.
The Book Buzz met last week and discussed 34 books of different topics. It is always interesting to listen to the group discuss the different books they read during the month. The Book Buzz will meet again Aug. 23 at 1:30 p.m. in the library.
We encourage new members to join, stop by and check us out. On Saturday morning, Jimmy Carrington and Steve Chappell of C & C Railroaders provided a train display for the public to enjoy. Their display consisted of about 30 cars of different sizes and styles. The children and adults enjoyed just watching the trains.
The Railroaders also had a table set up displaying pictures of most all the depots from across the State of Tennessee. It was a very informative and enjoyable program.
We will be having the Corn and Music Festival Poster Contest again at the library. This will start in August. All posters need to have a corn and music theme and also display the dates of the festival, Sept. 17-22. The first-place winner will be displayed in the library window and the remaining posters will be displayed at other businesses in town.
Check with the library for more information.
We continue to have a lot of information to offer on our website and our Agent Verso Website. You can access these at www.sharonlibrary.moonfruit.com and http://tenvverso.autographics.com/iluminar/home.asp?lid=sharon. Check out our resources page on our website and our “splash page” on Agent Verso. Check out the Learning Express and follow the link to job search and workplace skills. There are several prep tests available including the Compass Practice Test and how to create a resume. When you create your personal account, it will let you store your resume in a PDF file that you can access anywhere there is an internet connection. While you are there, also check out the READS for downloading EBooks and the World Book Encyclopedia.
Remember we are consistently adding new books and DVDs to our collection, stop by and check some out. We continue to take donations of paperback, hardcover books, DVDs and VHS tapes. We do accept Memorials; this is another way to honor your loved one with a book placed in the library.
The library also has several different community items for sale – “The Last 100 Years of Sharon,” Sharon 1997 annuals and our Sharon afghans. Please stop by to check out our ongoing book sale; books are added weekly.
