Going underground!Posted: June 19th, 2013
Summer reading clubs go “underground” with secret-agent training and zombies! Kids pick their way through a “mine field” without exploding any bombs and wiggle over and under the “laser beams”. Check the calendar for lots more fun and please register either online or by calling 967-3798.
Afternoon Book ClubPosted: June 18th, 2013
Shorelines Book Club meets every third Thursday at 1 p.m. in the Ritter Room. The title for July is “Framing Innocence”, Lynn Powell’s true account of what happened when a mother and amateur photographer in Oberlin dropped off film at her local drugstore. The film contained pictures of her daughter that would cause the county prosecutor to take her away in handcuffs and threaten to remove her daughter. Powell, a poet who was also the woman’s neighbor, recounts the zeal of the prosecutor and the reaction of a small town. Order your copy today!
