Last night at a meeting of Bath Township Trustees, our manager Jane Scott was given a special proclamation commemorating our 50th Anniversary.
This morning we had this furry little visitor drop by our Nature Connect Garden. He had completed his 26 day of reading (He loved the Tales of Peter Rabbit) and he had hopped his 26 miles. Although we did not have a t-shirt in his size at this time, he was so excited by all he had accomplished, and he plans to keep on reading for entry slips in our end of the summer raffle. Have you completed your 26 day challenge? Be sure to stop in. Haven’t yet signed up for Mind Body & Sole? There is still plenty of summer left! Stop in and sign up for the Summer Reading & Fitness Program that everybunny has been raving out!

Over the past two years, we have enjoyed bringing you all of the latest titles to place holds on. This is no longer the fastest or most efficient way to get the latest and greatest titles to you. For these reasons, our July Hot Title lists will be the final lists created through our branch.

For all of the latest books that are available to place reserves on, please visit our Popular Culture’s “Coming Soon” list, which is updated weekly. You can click here, or visit: http://ascplpop.akronlibrary.org/coming-soon/.
Please bookmark these two sites and continue to them periodically for all of the latest and greatest titles.
All Library locations will be closed Friday, July 4 – Independence Day. We will be open on Saturday, July 5th, from 10-5. If you can’t wait until Saturday to find something great to read, please take a look at our collection of e-books and e-audio, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
School is finally out and many kids are ready to put away the books but research is showing that children who don’t read over the summer may actually lose more than two months of reading achievement. To prevent that slide, many area schools compile summer reading lists that offer suggestions or required reading titles. Here are just a few of the summer reading lists:
Lists from other area schools can be viewed at the information desk. Many of these books have already been pulled and placed on a table in the children’s area. Check it out the next time you are in the library!
This week we have our first Friends of the Fairlawn-Bath Branch Library Mini-Book Sale on Monday, June 16, from 10-3. Stop by to pick up some great bargains.
