We had wonderful group here in the branch on Tuesday May 6thfor the most recent LEGO Mania program. There were a total of 10 persons building, designing, and admiring the fantastic creations. Alexis Pearson was the draw prize winner of the LEGO minifigure. Congratulations to Alexis and her fantastic assistants!
Kids of all ages are encouraged to attend this special program. It is a great way for parents (especially Dads and Granddads) to spend some time with kids doing something fun and creative. A prize draw will be held at each program. Please register ahead of time so staff know how many kids to expect. All kids should have an adult helper to assist and supervise. Please note that staff are not able to supervise children closely during this program as the library is also open to the general public.
All LEGO building materials are provided by the library - so please leave your own at home!

Join us at the library for discussion of the title(s) listed below. This is an open group and we are always happy to see new members at our meetings. We generally do not engage in "lofty" discussions about the books- but instead explore some of the interesting ideas or themes inside the stories...our main goal is to try reading a bit out of our own comfort zones and maybe come across some books we might never have thought to read! For more information about the group or if you would be interested in joining us please contact Diana at the Falkland branch.
Currently Reading: The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: a novel by Rachel Joyce.
The current title may be available at the branch. Please speak with staff.

For those that missed the last meeting we discussed Gone Gril by Gillian Flynn. The story is about a man being investigated in the dissapearance/death of his wife. As the story unfolds you gain insight into the private lives (and lies) of this couple. It brings up many things to consider such as the role of media in our own lives, the concept of public and private lives and the differences between what we see and what we show others. This is an interesting story with some twists and turns that may leave you wondering how something that looks so good can be so incredibly bad! Those at the meeting generally enjoyed the story but agreed it wasn't one that left you feeling good about the world...
