Books & Brews in July

Did someone say ‘Brews’? That would be us! Don’t miss the Library’s coolest new program for adults, Books & Brews, this coming Friday, July 15th from 7 – 9 pm. This month we’re featuring John Jordre of Red Wagon Bread as he teaches us a little about home-brewing.
BYOB – 21 & up only, please.

Summer Reading is for Adults, Too

Is curling up with a good book your idea of a great summer vacation? Are you feeling left out when you read about all the fantastic programs for kids happening here at the library this summer? Does the idea of winning prizes make you giddy?
Well, the Summer Reading Program is for adults, too! Every summer we are surprised at how many folks miss out on the chance to win some lovely prizes (including a Valiant Vineyards Winery gift certificate), when they are reading for pleasure, anyway.

Participating couldn’t be easier: Each time you finish a book, stop by the library and fill out an adult SRP entry form and leave it with the staff. You’re entered! We will draw for prizes at the end of July, and contact winners by email or phone. What are you waiting for?

Summer Reading Program continues…

Thanks to an exuberant and active Kick-off party, generously supported by the Friends of the Vermillion Public Library, Larry Brady, and Murph’s Appliance, we ushered in the 2016 summer season with nearly 200 attendees! To view some of the highlights, visit the library’s Youtube channel and look up the Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library.

The Friends of the Vermillion Public Library organization does so much to support the Summer Reading Program through their Edie’s Book Shop Sales. We’d like to send out an extra huge thank you to all of you who drop by these monthly sales to search for your fabulous book treasure. Every dollar you spent goes back into library programming! Additionally, June’s sale was matched by a generous grant from the Modern Woodmen of America – everyone who shopped on the June 3rd & 4th sale doubled their impact. THANK YOU Modern Woodmen!

You can still register for all summer reading programs via the ‘Summer Reading Program’ link on our website, www.vermillionpubliclibrary.org.

Tech Center Closure

Tomorrow our Tech Center will be closed ALL DAY, in preparation for the launching of our new reservation software! Our new Tech Center reservation system is coming – Thursday, June 9th! A library card is all you need to get checked into a computer; easy peasy. If you don’t yet have a library card, you should – they’re FREE for all Clay County residents:)

We apologize for the inconvenience, but sincerely hope all patrons will be pleased with the new system.
