Since July is right in the middle of summer vacation, the challenge this month will be to read a book that has a beach setting. (The whole book doesn’t have to be at the beach, but at least part of it does.) Some authors like Nancy Thayer and Dorothea Benton Frank have quite a few novels with beach settings, but you don’t have to read a romance novel. Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road” ends on a beach and Peter Benchley’s “Jaws” is set on a beach as well. Ask a librarian if you need suggestions.
Making Proud Choices is a free three day long training that provides those 12-18 years old with the knowledge, confidence and skills necessary to reduce their risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), HIV and pregnancy by abstaining from sex or using condoms and birth control methods if they choose to have sex. It will be Aug. 5 - 7 from 10 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. each day (a lunch will be provided) at the Lewisville Branch Library. Registration and a waiver/permission form is required.
Ever wonder why the constellations are named after different animals? What stories can the stars tell about their namesakes? Learn about animals and the constellations named after them through stories, artifacts, and a few live animals presented by the NC Zoo. All ages are welcome.
