SEE YOU AT THE FAIR Be sure to look over the lobby dis­play as you en­ter the front door to the li­brary and check out the county fair com­ing up Aug. 8-13. Then when you visit the fair, please stop by the li­brary booth for a few giveaways, and the re­minder that all chil­dren’s and young adult ma­te­ri­als checked out through La­bor Day will have no late fees. This does not in­clude DVDs and our In­ter­li­brary Loan items.

••• FREE BOOKS Look over the cart in the Main Read­ing Room. There may be a few books that are free for the tak­ing.

••• DID YOU KNOW? The li­brary pro­vides a free ser­vice through Sto­ry­time on Wheels. This pro­ject goes to li­censed home child care cen­ters in Queen Anne’s County to pro­vide monthly read­ing pro­grams. This Sto­ry­time ex­pe­ri­ence and fol­low-up ac­tiv­i­ties bring the fun and ex­cite­ment of books di­rectly to young chil­dren. If you would like to vol­un­teer or have a vol­un­teer visit your cen­ter, con­tact the li­brary to­day.

Did you know that chil­dren ex­posed to read­ing may be­come in­de­pen­dent? If your child is be­com­ing cu­ri­ous or us­ing words you don’t know, there is a chance he or she may al­ready be read­ing.

••• TER­RAR­IUM CRAFT

AND TALK Reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired for the Ter­rar­ium Craft and Talk ses­sion at the li­brary on Aug. 24, be­gin­ning at 6 p.m. Come and make your own ter­rar­ium while learn­ing about the best plants to use.

••• LI­BRARY TOTE BAGS You re­ally should have one of the li­brary’s nice-look­ing blue tote bags. Just $2 each, ask at the Cir­cu­la­tion Desk.
