Adult Summer Reading Program 2009

Be Creative @ Your Library®
June 8 to August 7, 2009

Carnegie-Stout Public Library will begin its third Summer Reading Program for Adults on June 8, 2009. The Program will continue through August 7, 2009. The Rules "R" this easy:
Register at the Information Desk or on our web page
Read or listen to 5 books
Record the titles on your Reading Log
Return the completed Reading Log to the Information Desk.
Programs are designed to stimulate the imagination and explore subjects like gardening, beading and songwriting. Louis Ferrante, an ex-mafia thug, will share his journey from robbery to writing in his memoir, Unlocked. We will feature another program designed to encourage participants to write their own memoirs in only six words.

Adults with an artistic bent will also be given an eclectic list of materials to create an 11” x 14” poster visualizing a scene or character from a favorite book. These artworks will be displayed in the Library.

For more information, call the Information Desk at 563-589-4225, option 4. Get those creative juices flowing!

The first program for adults is on Tuesday, June 9 at Prescott School at 6:30 p.m. The Herb Society of Dubuque will present a workshop on container herb gardening. The program is free, but registration is required. Call the Information Desk at 589-4225, option 4.
