Did you know that May is Older American’s Month? President Obama has proclaimed May as Older American’s month. In his proclamation he states “Older Americans have carried our Nation through great challenges and triumphs. They have enriched our national character and strengthened the Republic for those who have followed. During the month of May, we pay tribute to the wisest among us.” In recognition of Older American’s month and to provide a year round resource for Older Americans and their families, the library has put together a bookmark from information found on the AOA’s website at http://www.aoa.gov/AoARoot/Index.aspx.
More items that you might like to read include new bestsellers added this week such as: First Family by David Baldacci; Loitering With Intent by Stuart Woods; Columbine by Dave Cullen; The Perfect Poison by Amanda Quick; Tea Time For the Traditionally Built by Alexander McCall Smith; and Deadlock by Iris Johansen. New large print bestsellers added include The Miracle by Gilbert Morris; Wicked Prey by John Sandford; Coming Unglued by Rebeca Seitz; and Vision in White by Nora Roberts.
Like to write? On Thursday, May 21st, author and performer Rochelle Rabouin will be giving a presentation at the Little Elm Writers group. She is trying to find a short romance that someone can read while music is played in different parts of the reading. We are hoping that the writers group can assist in writing a short romance for her project. If you are interested, please call the library to let us know and we will see you Thursday.
Do you like mysteries? Stop at the library and see if you can tell which furniture was rearranged and what new piece of furniture was added. The new item that was added was purchased with Lone Star Grant funds and arrived in a semi so it is bigger than a breadbox and fits in perfectly with Little Elm’s Lake attitude.
Don’t forget that the library will be closed Friday, May 22nd through Monday, May 25th in observance of Memorial Day. Regular library hours are Monday/Wednesday 10am-5:30pm; Tuesday/Thursday 10am-8pm; and Saturday 10am-3pm. Have a safe Memorial Day weekend.
