Record Observer - - Community -

SELF CHECK-OUT We have a new way to save time at the Queen Anne’s County branch li­brary in Cen­tre­ville. It is self check­out right at the Cir­cu­la­tion Desk. Use the touch screen and you do not have to wait for li­brary staff that may be busy.

It is easy to check-out, check your li­brary ac­count, re­new items and print a list of your items. You may cer­tainly ask staff for a les­son if you wish.

••• LI­BRARIES ROCK There are all kinds of fun things at the li­brary dur­ing the sum­mer months. Here are just three you can en­joy in July for the en­tire fam­ily.

On Wed­nes­day, July 18, at 2:30 p.m. every­one can cre­ate any­thing your imagination can come up with us­ing our vast ar­ray of craft and art sup­plies.

On Wed­nes­day, July 23, at 2:30 p.m. it will be Rep­tile Won­ders for all ages. Come and see and touch a va­ri­ety of ex­otic an­i­mals. We will have a gi­ant tor­toise, bearded drag­ons, mon­i­tor lizards, and sev­eral snakes in­clud­ing a large Burmese python. This hands-on, fast-paced, in­ter­ac­tive show dis­cusses what the an­i­mals eat, where they are found, and what eats them.
