Like most people, I suspect, standing on the rim of the Grand Canyon filled me with awe, as I looked down on that incredible landscape carved by the Colorado River over millions of years. But the Grand Canyon is only one of North America’s many geological wonders, some of which I’d never heard of (Valles Caldera – a supervolcano whose eruption was roughly 1,000 times bigger than Mt. St. Helens) and others I knew of but learned a lot about from this book (like why the tides in the Bay of Fundy rise and drop about 50 feet every 6 hours). This is an amazing book filled with gorgeous photography and fascinating information. Anybody looking for a great coffee table gift book, check this one out before you buy!
Many folks have been asking if and when we were going to include eBooks and eAudiobooks as part of our adult summer reading program. The answers are yes and now! You can now get credit for those eBooks and eAudiobooks you check out from SELCO (sorry – no personal eBooks or eBooks from other libraries. Part of the whole summer reading thing is trying to increase the use of our stuff!) Details are on our summer reading page; you can submit the books you’ve read or listened to on the entry form. Have fun!
It’s time! Tomorrow, June 5 at 10:30am we’ll be putting on our annual summer reading kickoff party! Stop by for face painting, temporary tattoos, bubbles, sidewalk chalk art, 10 Pigs Story Stroll and much more. This is our traditional start to the summer reading program and it’s always a great time for kids and families! The weather looks great and we are ready for crowds. See you there!
