Summer Reading 2015

The first program for our 2015 Every Hero Has a Story summer reading theme is this Wednesday, July 1. Children thru 2nd grade will meet from 10:00 to 11:30 and finish capes and decorate a T-Shirt. We will also be filming them with a green screen so we can see them fly over various cityscapes.
The 3rd grade up kids will be constructing “Hero” pillows in the afternoon from 1:30 to 3:30. All photos for the pillows need to be submitted by Tuesday pm so that they can be printed beforehand. Printing of the photos cannot be done at the library so make sure you get them turned in if you are participating in this program.

The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

The story follows Hetty “Handful” Grimke, a Charleston slave, and Sarah, the daughter of the wealthy Grimke family.  The story begins on Sarah’s eleventh birthday, when she is given ownership over Handful, who is to be her handmaid.  “The Invention of Wings” follows the next thirty-five years of their lives.  Inspired in part by the historical figure of Sarah Grimke (a feminist, suffragist and, importantly, an abolitionist), Kidd allows herself to go beyond the record to flesh out the inner lives of all the characters, both real and imagined”–
