“Groundbreaking Reads” the adult summer reading program, continues with another outstanding event this week, Tuesday at 7 p.m. Dr. Richard Jones, Lee University professor, will provide an entertaining and informative program on “Archaeology: Reading Dirt in Southeast Tennessee.”

Join us in the Community Room and learn what groundbreaking things are happening right here in your backyard. All patrons who attend this free community event will receive another chance at the end of the summer reading program drawing.

“Dig into Reading,” the children’s summer reading program, will have a kickoff party Saturday at 2 to 4 p.m. at the library and Lee University’s park adjacent to the library on 8th Street.

All children through age 12 are invited to attend this fun event to begin a summer of reading and fun activities provided by the library through the end of July. Young patrons can attend programs all summer long and enjoy activities that encourage reading. A complete list of activities and signup sheets are available at the Children’s Room Desk. Sign up today!

The Zombie Prom on Saturday at 7 p.m. begins the teen’s summer reading program, “Beneath the Surface.” Come dressed in costume and have a professional make-up artist create a one of a kind creation on you.

A live DJ will be on hand as well as plenty of Zombie treats. The teen program is an after-hours event at the library to take place every Friday and Saturday evening from 7 until 9 p.m.

The Scholastic Book Fair is continuing through Monday. There is a little time left to get a great deal on your summer reading.

There will be a Barnes & Noble Nook e-book reader class on June 7 from noon to 2 p.m. This workshop will be about using your Nook to download free e-books with the library’s READS service. To register for a workshop, stop by the Non-fiction Desk on the second floor.
