August Task

We don’t know about you, but for us this summer has been very busy and hectic. We finished Summer Reading on the 27th of July with a fun movie extravaganza and are now looking forward to August. While we usually take some time to recuperate in August every year, we still have some awesome programs planned. Youth Services has a couple of great programs for the little kids- Cook’s Pest Control will be in the Library on Thursday, August 2nd to tell us all about bugs. They will also be passing out coloring books about the bugs we learn about in the program. On Tuesday, August 7th Laura Vest from Morgan County Commissioner Chairman Ray Long’s Office will host a special Story Time all about transportation. For all ages we have a super fun night planned for Friday, August 3rd because The Al Keith Band will be doing a FREE concert in the Library. Come sing and dance from 6:00 to 8:00 pm with Al and the Band as they play all your favorites from the 1950’s to modern day hits. Then on Thursday, August 9th, Kevin Alspaugh from the US Space and Rocket Center will present a Space Rocks program for all ages at 5:30 pm. We hope you take some time in August to come in and enjoy a program with us.

For those participating in the 6th Annual Adult Reading Challenge, come in the Library and enjoy a good book. Your task for the month of August is to celebrate Book Lovers Day, observed on Thursday, August 9th by reading a book you love. Can be an old favorite you re-read or something new that you love that hasn’t fit into the Challenge yet.

Happy Reading!

July 2018

The summer is in full swing at Decatur Public Library and we hope you have had a chance to attend one of our many programs, events, or classes. If you haven’t been in yet, we still have plenty of fun coming up in July. We will close at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, July 3rd and re-open on Thursday, July 5th at 10:00 am. We hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July! We have Book Club for the Adult Reading Challenge on Thursday, July 5th from 12:00-2:00 pm and for the kids we have LEGO® Hour at 4:00 pm. On Monday, July 9th Youth Services will host Dr. Brenda Webb from UNA for a program on geology at 10:30 am and there will be a Lunch & Learn program by Shannon Fuller Keith on Early Native American Life in North Alabama from 12:00-2:00 pm in the community room for adults and older teens. That’s just a taste of the great programming available at DPL in July. Drop by and visit, we’re sure to have something to catch your interest.

For those who are looking for the next thing to read for the Adult Reading Challenge, find a book that is part of an on-going series of books about a character you love. This can be any genre so long as it is not catalogued as a juvenile book at DPL.

Happy Reading!
