June 19 is the starting day for the summer reading program, "Be Creative @ Your Library!" This year's kickoff with children's entertainers The Cat's Pajamas is at 10:00 a.m. at the McConnellsburg Alumni & Friends building. We look forward to seeing you there. Teens and adults can sign up and track their books online. Just go to the library's Web site at www.fultoncountylibrary.org and click on the link at the bottom of the page. Readers will receive a prize for completing the program and be eligible for random drawings.

If you would like to help support the renovations to the library, there are several ways to do so. First, there is the old-fashioned (but much appreciated) donation. Secondly, for those of you with children or grandchildren, you can have their handprints immortalized in paint on a clay tile for $15. For $50 you can remember your loved ones, past and present, with a personalized brick paver to be placed in the front patio of the library. There are also naming opportunities available at a wide range of donations. For details on all these ways to help keep your library growing, go to our Web site at www.fultoncountylibrary.org or just stop in and pay us a visit.

Also don't forget the book club's next meeting is at 6:30 p.m. June 24. The selection for June is the short story "The Library Policeman" by Steven King, found in the collection "Four Past Midnight." So join these devoted bibliophiles for an interesting evening of book discussion.
