Are you participating in our Summer Reading Program yet? Yes, I'm talking to you - you adult out there who thought summer reading was just for kids! It's not, and there are prizes to be won!
Also, we want your book reviews... if you post them on the website, they'll show up right here on the library's website. Spread the word and help other library users find some new things to read. Go straight on over to the book review form and let us know what we should (or shouldn't) read this summer.
Here are the reviews we've received so far...
At the end I wish she did not go back to her ex-husband because to it shows as a weakness to our young readers.

The Discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamen by Howard Carter
A nice walk through of what was done in the greatest archaeological find of last century. I plan to read the next two volumes (of 1927 & 1933) as well. The tomb entrance was discovered Nov. 4, 1922. By mid-Feb. the Antechamber was cleared and the door to the Sepulchral Hall was penetrated. (Vols. 2 & 3 address the clearing of the Annexe, S.H., and store chamber.)
Included are the Golden Gate Park Conservatory of Flowers, Old Faithful Inn, the Tacoma Dome, and blimp hangars from WWII. There are covered bridges and a freeway bridge. The misc. structures include the USS Constitution, the Mosquito Bomber, a timber pile foundation, wood foundations on permafrost, a timber bulkhead, a roller coaster, the US Air Force's EMP test TRESTLE, and the Santa Cruz Municipal Pier.
This book made more aware of the versatility, durability, and strength of wood.
Timmy Failure: Mistakes were made by Stephen Pastis
Well, when you get the first feel of how the book speaks to you, when you get to read it, it really gives you the good feeling of what a dectective life is like. And so like, when you read the book, if you're thinking of being a dectective, it is a really funny book, and it can get you educated in a way. And since we all have great parents, we know that they can help us read the book if we can't read it alone. I really liked the book. It's one of my favorite books. And the reason I like to read it is because it gives you a sense of how good a book can be, how good an author can be, and it's really good.
