What's happening @ the Little Elm Library

Little Elm Public Library newsletter
Being right handed, I never really gave my left hand a whole lot of credit except that it was conveniently around when my right had needed help. Currently, my left hand has been put into a brace until the doctor figures out why my hand is bothering me. This has made my right hand very sad because my left hand has been a bigger help all these years than I gave it credit for. Actually to narrow it down, my four left fingers can still function, but my thumb has decided to go on strike. I guess I won’t be bowling anytime soon.

One handy thing that you can do at the library is read. Hot new bestsellers that have just arrived at the library include The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon; The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe; Divine Soul Songs by Dr. Zhi Gang Sha; and The Neighbor by Lisa Gardner. I just finished listening to Swimsuit by James Patterson and it was awesome! I think it is even better than Sail by Patterson. Check it out and let me know what you think.

If you like reading award winning fiction books then you might want to bookmark the National Book Foundation’s book a day blog The National Book Foundation is presenting a book-a-day blog on the Fiction winners from 1950 to 2008 in order to celebrate the 60th year of the National Book Awards. The blog will run from July 7th to September 21st. If the library does not have a book that you are looking for, we can either provide you with a bookmark that has the phone numbers of the seventeen public libraries in Denton County or do an interlibrary loan that enables us to borrow books from across the United States. What’s on your reading list?

We need you! On Thursday, July 9th, at 7pm, the Friends of the Library will be electing new officers. If you are interested in being part of an organization that is helping the library grow up, now is the perfect time to get involved. The library has between 5500 and 6500 visitors a month and provides a lot of different services and programs to the community. Friends are very important to the library so we hope that you will either become an officer or join the friends of the library.

Upcoming programs of interest include the investment and retirement seminar on Saturday, July 11th at 10:30am. Learn how to determine if you’re on track to reach your retirement goals and what steps you can take to help.
