Summer Reading Programs Begin June 28th

Join us this summer for fun summer reading programs for adults, teens, and children. There will be opportunities to win great prizes just for indulging in the joy of reading. Stop at the Information Desks or take a look at our latest newsletter for complete details.

Friday Night Flicks Presents: The Book of Eli

Friday, June 18th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

With unflappable cool and surprising gentleness, Denzel Washington strides a bleak and barren world in The Book of Eli. Eli is headed west, but on the way, he passes devastation and squalor, and occasionally he must mete out some devastation of his own with a sharp blade. Rated: R

Tim Burton creates a candy-colored action-adventure tale with a feminist twist. His cinematic extravaganza offers a trippy good time with a poignant aftertaste. Rated: PG-13

Looking for Summer Volunteers

If you are a Wallingford student going into grades 5, 6, or 7 in the fall of 2010, you are eligible to volunteer to help us run our summer reading program. This year our program will be Haunt Your Library This Summer, featuring our Ghoulish Gameboard! We are expecting many enthusiastic players and we need our volunteers to help us run the game.

Volunteers commit to working two hours each day for one week. If you have the time to commit, please download an application and return it to the Children's Library. Read the application carefully with your parent or guardian and fill it out. All application forms are due by June 8.

We hope you will consider applying; we really can’t run the Summer Gameboard without our wonderful volunteers.
