Summer Reading is almost over! I can't believe how quickly the time has flown this month. I'm proud of all of you who read, volunteered, and participated in programs.
I know school is starting to creep up. Please enjoy the last bit of your summer. Go for a hike. Camp in your back yard. Ride a roller coaster. Look for beach glass at sun rise. Store up all the wonderful memories of halcyon days you can.
Here's what we'll be doing in our last six days:
July 27- will be our second to last Weekly Raffle in the Teen Area from 3:30-4:00 pm. Turn in your reading or attend to earn tickets. The Kona Ice Truck will show up for one last time!
July 27- The second to last Reading Buddies 4:00-4:30 pm, Children's Room. Our Reading Buddies program is full.
July 28- Photo Booth 3:30-4:30 pm, Teen Area. We'll have some props for you to take selfies with. If you missed the Make a Mask program, and think you'd still like to give this a try, I'd be happy to break out the supplies.
July 29- Game Booth Brainstorm Session 3:30-4:30 pm, Teen Area. Volunteers are still welcomed to help design a game booth for the End of Summer Finale Party. The booths will be for the younger children who participate in the Children's Room Summer Reading Program. Free snacks. Bring your completed ideas and list of items you plan to gather for your game booth.
July 30, 3:00-5:00 p.m. Movie in the Teen Area with free popcorn.
July 31, 4:00-5:00 p.m. Last Water Balloon Battle, Library Lawn. I have around 400 water balloons... it would be a shame if they went to waste.
July 31, 8:30-11:00 p.m. Skywatch with the NH Astronomical Society, North Beach, Hampton, NH. The Society will bring several of their telescopes to this event. A beach star watch is pretty much the most awesome thing to do. Everyone should try it once. Open to all ages.

August 3, Final Reading Buddies 4:00-4:30 pm, Children's Room.

Don't forget that the Teen Bingo Card earns you extra tickets. Completing a Bingo Card earns you 25 tickets!
I'll be sending one additional email about the Summer Finale Party. And don't forget to stop by and sign our Summer Yearbook! ~ Stacy
