LIBRARY CLOSED MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 1ST
The library will be closed on Monday, September 1st in observance of Labor Day. We will reopen on Tuesday, September 2nd at 9:00 a.m. We hope you have a safe and fun holiday weekend!
FREE FILM SCREENING AND DISCUSSION AT THE LIBRARY
We are proud to present Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines, a witty documentary that explores how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society's anxieties about women's liberation. As part of Wisconsin Public Television's Reel to Real film series, we are also happy to welcome Elizabeth Zanichkowsky, professor of English at UW-Waukesha, to lead a discussion after the film exploring the film's topics.
Please join us on THURSDAY, AUGUST 28th, at 6:30 p.m. for this fun (AND FREE) event!
SUMMER LIBRARY PROGRAM FOR ADULTS
The library's summer reading program for grown-ups is still underway! We encourage you to keep reading and reviewing those books, and to turn in your book review slips by the end of August to be entered in the drawing for fun swag and free books. In addition, for those of you that have completed your TIC-TAC-TOE BOARD (included in the packet you received upon registration), now through the end of August is the time to turn it in to be entered into the drawing for the GRAND PRIZE(s), donated by our generous Friends of the Library group!
TEEN SUMMER LIBRARY PROGRAM CONTINUES THROUGH AUGUST
Hey, Teens, keep on putting those book reviews in our monthly drawing box. We have a drawing at the end of July and at the end of August, yet. Be sure to put your name and phone number on them so we can call you if you win!
WE HAVE "BEST-LOVED BOOKS IN DEERFIELD" BOOKMARKS!
In February, the library introduced the "LOVE BOARD" made especially for patrons to write down and share their favorite books (fill out a heart with title and author of a book you love and put it on the board). From all the hearts that were on the Love Board, we created a list of best-loved books in Deerfield and turned that into bookmarks! One bookmark has the list of adult and young adult favorites, and another has the list of juvenile favorites. You can never have enough bookmarks, right? And you may find something to add to your OWN reading list. Add these special bookmarks to your collection!
