Teen Advisory Committee ready to go!

On Memorial Day the Teen Advisory Committee climbed aboard a float they designed to remind everyone about the upcoming Summer Reading Program (SRP) “Build a Better World.” This year with the theme of the SRP in mind the teens designed a float around the library’s current popular program Minecraft EDU. If you don’t know what Minecraft is, think of building with unlimited digital Legos. Players mine raw materials to build shelter and tools to survive in the cubic digital world.  There is more to the game, but that is the main idea. The Library has many books about playing Minecraft, along with fictional books based on the game. The books are available to borrow if anyone is interested in learning about Minecraft. Better yet, sign up for our monthly game of Minecraft. The “Build a Better World, Read” program begins with a sign up party on Friday, June 23, at the Mary Helen Joint Meeting House. There will be a hot dog cook out, games, and Tanglewood Nature Center and Museum will be performing a special program with their animal friends. The official start of the summer reading program will be July 1 through August 11. Keep checking our website or Facebook page for events and more activities during the programming weeks.

After the Memorial Day Parade the Friends of the Savona Free Library held a chicken barbecue to benefit the Library. Many dinners along with drinks were sold. The Friends were able to raise over $300.00. Thank you for all who came out in support of the Savona Free Library and the Friends who worked on the event.
