Prizes galore for kids in summer reading contest

Calling all kids!

Registration for our summer reading contest is right around the corner. Beginning on June 17, children, tweens, and teens may register for “Fetch a Good Book!” which is the theme of the contest this summer. Kids will keep track of the books they finish each week and win cool prizes along the way. At the end of the contest, those who have read the most books will be awarded grand prizes! This is also a fun and constructive way to enjoy the long, lazy hours of summer vacation.

Library Board members were recently given a sneak peek at the lovely quilt being constructed by the Library Quilting Committee, and it was well worth the wait! The quilt will go on display the end of June at the library and also will be shown at the Farmers’ Market on July 19 and August 16. Tickets again will be sold for $1.00 or six for $5. The winning ticket will be drawn at the Holiday Tea, which will be held at the library in December.

Wednesday, June 15, at 7 p.m., the Cannon Beach Reads group will be meeting to discuss West with the Night, by Beryl Markham. New members will be enthusiastically welcomed, as always.

In anticipation of our popular July 4th book sale, used books may now be brought in anytime during library hours. So the books can be sorted and priced by the event, we need them brought in as soon as possible. So if you’re wondering what to do with the piles of books in closets, on tables, or taking up space in bookcases – we will accept them anytime Monday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. All book donations are tax-deductible, and all money raised at our book sales goes to support our library.

There will be no membership meetings at the library in June, July, or August. The next membership meeting will be held at the library the first Wednesday in September at 10 a.m. Mark your calendars!

The Northwest Author series will also resume in the autumn.

Co-president Kathe Leduc is the person to contact if you’re interested in becoming a library volunteer. We can use volunteer help in the Adopt-a-Section program and for special events.

Finally, Office Manager Buddie Anderson Deni encourages library patrons to sign up for our eBook program, which enables the reading of books on electronic devices. This program is included in your yearly library card. Our website can be visited at The library also can be accessed on Facebook @ cannonbeachlibrary.

All of us at the Cannon Beach Library would like to wish all the dads out there a very happy Father’s Day this month!
