Memories of the Old North Pole Branch Library

Thanks for the memories! We’ve been at the old North Pole Library for 40 years. This fall we will be moving to our new location across the street from North Pole High School. If you have pictures, stories, or memories to share of the Old North Pole Branch Library, please stop by and pick up a piece of card stock and attach a picture/photograph, drawing or story. We will compile these memories into a scrapbook.

Our cherished memories from this cozy old library will travel with us to our new location. We are excited!

Crafty Fiction

The August display and booklist, Crafty Fiction, highlights novels in which handicrafts play a key role in the story. The handicrafts are included with the title listings, so you can pick and choose among your favorite crafts. However, this doesn’t mean that the entire story hinges on handicrafts but that the craft or crafter is important to the plot or helps develop the story’s background or theme. For instance, Dick Francis’ SHATTERED, one of his beloved horse racing mysteries, involves a glassblower who makes racing trophies. On the other hand, Jennifer Chiaverini’s Elm Creek Quilters series has lots of quilting talk, some history, and bits of romance. Do note that many crafts, other than the currently very popular quilting and knitting, are represented – including scrapbooking, auto restoration, and decorative blacksmithing!

THANKS FOR A GREAT SUMMER READING PROGRAM!

Thank you and congratulations to all the participants in the public library’s Fizz Boom Read! or Spark A Reaction (Young Adult) Summer Reading Programs. If you completed all the reading for your booklet, don’t forget to stop by the Berry Room by Saturday, August 23rd, with your validated coupon to pick up the free book you’ve earned, and to guess how many beads are in the Berry Room display case containers (representing the total number of books read by children and young adults this summer). Lots of great books were read, lots of fun programs were presented, and lots of prizes were won.
