Weather Forecast


Hancock Library News


Obviously our summer program this year is "water-based" and for those of you who are wondering, summer program starts 12 days from today, June 15 at noon, in the water tower park if weather is nice or the Community Center if too hot, windy, or rainy.

As in other years, bring your blanket and lunch if you would like so you can eat and listen to stories at the same time, Tuesday, June 15 and 22 at noon. On Monday, June 28, at 4 p.m., is our Viking sponsored program, Brodini Family Comedy Magic Show. (Watch for more details about that later). Programming continues at noon on Tuesdays, July 13 and 20. Still planning fun activities and volunteers are always invited to read a story or share any talent you may have. It is not necessary to attend all these events, even if you just come and join us one week that is great.

I am a "list person" and have pieces of paper and journals everywhere with "need to do's" and "things that inspire me" jotted down. I also have lists for the day, lists for the week, lists with jobs, lists with activities to do, and lists with books to read or buy. Post-it notes are often my new journals. On any given day you will see my desk full of many different colored Post-it notes until those ideas hopefully get posted to something more permanent or at least keep me more organized for that day and hopefully none of my lists get lost which many times puts me in trouble.

I think this all started with the diary that I received in 5th grade. It was pink, and of course had the obligatory key so that I could lock it to keep out peering eyes. Although I'm not sure in my house that that would have been, but then my dog got a hold of it and chewed off the clasp anyway.

Three of the books on my "to buy" list are now here at the library, they are:

"Spoken from the Heart" by Laura Bush, "9th Judgment" by James Patterson, and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" by Stieg Larsson

Hope you will put these on your list "to read".

See ya at the Library!
