This week at the library...


Summer Reading Club is over for this year, except for Novel Destinations, which still has a few more events, so this entry will be a little smaller for a couple of weeks while we library staff catch up on all the things that were put on hold while we celebrated summer and reading with our community's children! Then we head into the school year, the fall, the holidays…the round of the library year.

Here are this week's events…

WEDNESDAY
Buena Vista branch, 7:00 p.m.

Novel Destinations presents…
TRAVEL JOURNAL WRITING WORKSHOP

A blank travel journal can become the most treasured souvenir of your trip. You can fill it with emotional snapshots--from expectations to first impressions to surprising discoveries. When you pick it up years later, this journal transports you back years and across miles.

Become inspired with travel writer Susan Van Allen, who has written about Italian travel for many media outlets, including National Public Radio, Town & Country, Student Traveler, Tastes of Italia, and Chicago Daily Herald. Her work is featured in several Travelers Tales anthologies (including Best Travel Writing 2009), and on CNN.com. Van Allen has also written Letters from Italy and 100 Places in Italy Every Woman Should Go.


Central Library, 7:00 p.m.
TEEN BOOK CLUBS!

This is the summer meeting of the three teen book clubs, to get acquainted with new members and select the book we will discuss in September in each club. This meeting is for book club members only. Please note that the 10-12 Book Club is full, but we are accepting names for the waiting list. If your teen wishes to join either the 8+9 or 6+7 Book Clubs, please contact teen librarians Melissa Elliott and Anarda Williams, at burbank.teens@gmail.com, before Wednesday if possible, so that your teen can be included at this meeting. There are still a few places available in those two clubs.


SATURDAY

playing in the Storytime room…

Summer movies: CHILL OUT AT THE LIBRARY!
