Luau at the Library

Are you or do you know someone between the ages of 9 and 13? Then we have just the fun time for you, a Luau! Join Jill on Saturday, March 21 at 1:30pm for a great time. There will be party games, Limbo is a must! You will also be competing in a smoothie contest! What will you put in your smoothie? What will you name it? Will it be the best tasting smoothie around? Winning smoothie recipes will be on the library's website and Facebook page. You are encouraged to dress for the event! REGISTRATION REQUIRED!


For the first time the Suring Area Public Library will be holding a BATTLE OF THE BOOK during March. Each week you are invited to come into the library and vote in the battles. On March 27th at 5:00pm we will have a BIG PARTY to celebrate all of our winners. There are three categories to vote in: Children's Books, Middle & High School Books, and Adult Books.

Now, don't worry that you have not read the books. It's okay. You can read them now if you want (see the lists below better by clicking on them.) or just stop into the library. We have copies of each of the books. You can look at them, read a chapter if you want. Learn what the books are about. Then you can cast your votes. All the books on the lists have been listed as some of the BEST BOOKS OF 2014 so maybe you will want to read them. If you have any questions or want to know more please stop in and talk with your librarians.
