End of Summer Reading :(

Once again, we’ve come to the end of our Adult Summer Reading Program. We would like to thank all of you who participated; it was another successful year. We had many “newbies” offer recommendations this year, and the variety of subjects that people are reading is fun to see. We drew the names of our prize winners and here are the lucky four:

Ist prize – (MP3 player) – Teresa Smith

2nd prize – ($25 Magic Valley Mall Gift Card) – Ann Wilkinson

3rd prize – (Digital photo keychain) – Katy Touchette & Victoria Ludlow

Congrats to all the winners!

One side comment — for those of you who were able to see the “Moveable Feast” PNLA presentation by Jennifer & Beth, we thank you for your great comments and feedback! In the next week, we’ll create a page with links to our PowerPoint, our booklists, and the quiz, in case you want to borrow our ideas.

A Great Wall (of Books, that is…)

In the spirit of the Olympics, we decided to put together a display and recommended booklist of books about China. Included are works of fiction set in the country, memoirs of those who have lived there, and other nonfiction books that describe the customs, culture, politics, and economy. Stop by the Reference Desk for more information.

And, if you’re curious about the Games, here’s the Official Beijing 2008 Olympic Games site.
