13-year-old Jonah has always known that he was adopted, and he's never thought it was any big deal. He and a new friend, Chip, who's also adopted, begin receiving mysterious letters. The first one says, "You are one of the missing." The second one says, "Beware! They're coming back to get you." Jonah, Chip, and Jonah's sister are plunged into a mystery that involves the FBI, a vast smuggling operation, an airplane that appeared out of nowhere, and people who seem to appear and disappear at will. The kids discover they are caught in a battle between two opposing forces that want very different things for Jonah and Chip's lives. Do Jonah and Chip have any choice in the matter? And what should they choose when both alternatives are horrifying? The Library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families. Grades 4 -5, please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book.

A Moment and a Memory: WWII Stories through Sketches
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

William H. Frake III (Bill) has rubbed shoulders with some of Hollywood’s most renowned elite and has walked the red carpet at some of its glitziest events, but if you ask the award-winning animator what encounter in his illustrious career stands out the most, he will tell you it’s no one you’ll find on the silver screen. For him, there are no bigger American heroes than our military veterans especially those from World War II. Frake has used his artistic talent to pay tribute to these brave men and women in his “A Moment and a Memory: WWII Stories through Sketches.”

Join Mr. Frake for a discussion about his books composed of hundreds of personal collections of illustrated stories of WWII friends and acquaintances. He has been privileged to have known many WWII veterans and has gone on several WWII reunions and met them, their wives, and their families. Bill gathered these "memories" from the men and women who experienced these "moments" as WWII veterans. It is they who Bill draws for. If he can bring a smile and a good laugh, then he has accomplished what these book were intended to encapsulate. Several of the WWII veterans featured in the books will be in attendance. Books will be available for sale. Please register.

What does it take for a caterpillar to become a beautiful butterfly? Lynn Sprague, from Winterberry Homestead, will present an engaging educational program to answer this very question. We are excited to have a solarium at the Library for 6 weeks to show the amazing progression from chrysalis, then caterpillar to butterfly. It will contain host plants and butterfly eggs, and we encourage you to return to the library regularly to view the progress of caterpillars, chrysalis hatching, and butterflies within the solarium! The butterflies will be released during the Environmental Exploration Week the beginning of August.  For ages Kindergarten through adult. Please register.

Nonfiction Book Discussion*
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The nonfiction book discussion group meets at 1pm and 7pm, the second Monday, every other month, to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

At stake is nothing less than who we are, and what we will become. There have been monopolists in the past but today's corporate giants have far more nefarious aims. They’re monopolists who want access to every facet of our identities and influence over every corner of our decision-making. Until now few have grasped the sheer scale of the threat. Foer explains not just the looming existential crisis but the imperative of resistance. 

Please register at the Information Desk.

Books will be available for purchase ($5). Library copies will also be available for checkout and all titles are available on our Book Discussion Kindle and Overdrive.

Talk & Taste Cookbook Group
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

We’re trying something new with Talk&Taste this month.  It’s time to show our love for one of our fave famous chefs – Bobby Flay! We looked at all his cookbooks and just couldn’t decide on one.  So we picked them ALL!   Your mission: explore any Bobby Flay cookbook (yours or the library’s) or find his recipes in other sources – his website, magazines, online, shows. We have several options available to choose from at the library. Make a few dishes and then bring your favorite to the discussion night.  Experienced foodies and newbies are welcome. Registration required.

Nonfiction Book Discussion*
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The nonfiction book discussion group meets at 1pm and 7pm, the second Monday, every other month, to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

In 1955, white men in the Mississippi Delta lynched a fourteen-year-old from Chicago named Emmett Till. His murder was part of a wave of white terrorism in the wake of the 1954 Supreme Court decision that declared public school segregation unconstitutional. Only weeks later, Rosa Parks thought about young Emmett as she refused to move to the back of a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Five years later, Black students who called themselves “the Emmett Till generation” launched sit-in campaigns that turned the struggle for civil rights into a mass movement. Till’s lynching became the most notorious hate crime in American history.

Please register at the Information Desk.

Books will be available for purchase ($5). Library copies will also be available for checkout and all titles are available on our Book Discussion Kindle and Overdrive.
