September is Library Card Sign-Up month! To celebrate, the Tiptonville Public Library will raffle off two prize baskets, one for children and one for adults. There are three ways to enter these drawings:
- Sign-up for a new Library Card
- Renew an old card
- Return books you’ve checked out*
The winners will be drawn on September 29th via Facebook.
*You will only receive a submission to the drawing for books that you return in-person to the front desk. Check-outs and books returned to the drop box will not gain entries. Lego Club will meet again this Friday, September 2nd at 4:00pm. This program is open to any age, but we do ask that those under the 5 be accompanied by an adult or older sibling.
The Library will be closed on Monday, September 5th for Labor Day.
Banned Book Week is September 18th-24th. Come in and celebrate your freedom to read, by picking out a Banned Book. Please be aware that no books are currently banned from this library. Banned Book Week is a means to highlight titles that have been banned/challenged in schools, public libraries, and academic libraries across the country. To that end, the library will have daily activities such as scavenger hunts, online story times, and take-home crafts that will be available on a come-and-go basis as well as several displays throughout the building showcasing challenged books. Information on the impact of Banned Books and how patrons can appropriately challenge books in this library will also be readily available.
Story-time and Craft is scheduled for Monday, September 26th at 4:30pm. This program will be Fall themed.
The Tiptonville Library along with all others in the Obion River Regional system have partnered with the Discovery Park of America to provide patrons and their families with the opportunity to fully experience the park for free. We currently have kits that include 2-Day VIP passes to the park (free admission, discount at gift shop & café, plus a VIP badge) for each member of your family, maps
of park, things to do in Obion County, and a few goodies and snacks. You MUST apply for a kit. A link to the application is on the library’s Facebook page along with a QR code that is also at the front desk and posted on the front door. All you have to do to get a kit is apply and agree to return it along with a worksheet from DPA (included in the kit) highlighting your family’s experience. These passes expire December 31st, so get them while they are available.
What’s the librarian reading? Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller
This is the second in a series about a female pirate captain who is (spoiler alert) half siren.
It’s a mix of adventure and romance. Definitely Young Adult, as everything is pretty PG. I feel like every pirate main character gets compared to Jack Sparrow, but Alosa is very reminiscent of him…maybe minus the rum.
