Summer is here and with it a lot of activities going on in Keeseville. Again from my walks around the community everything is looking nice and fresh and I love how polite and friendly everybody I encounter is.

Many things to mark in your calendar from the library. The recent booksale seemed quite a success. I know I'm now in the need for an additional bookcase in my house. Next time you are visiting the library be sure to look down as a new carpet was put down this past week.

Summer hours start for the library on July 5th which are Monday 10 am until noon and then 1 until 7pm, Tuesday and Thursday from 11am until 5pm and Wednesday and Friday from 10 am until noon and then 1 until 5pm.

Little bit of stupid trivia because I just thought of it and I have room in the column this week. Did you know that technically noon is 12:00 am and the switch to pm occurs at 12:01. So midnight is really 12:00 pm and the next minute becomes 12:01 am. Since I know and try to pay attention to this, I always write "noon" and "midnight" so as not to cause confusion when I use the correct pm or am designation.

Anyways, on Thursday July 7th until the 29th the library will be hosting an exhibition and sale by photographer Russ Hartung and potter Erik Wilson with an opening reception on the 7th from 5:30 until 7:30 pm. All are welcome to attend.

The Library will be presenting the summer reading program for children "One World, Many Stories" in which participants will learn about a new country every week through stories, making crafts, learning traditions and eating native snacks from 10:30 am until 11:30 am Mondays from July 11th until August 15th. The countries to be covered include England, Spain, Peru, Jamaica, France and the Netherlands. The target age group is from five to ten year-olds. This reading programs are always very entertaining , fun and very meaningful so give it a shot!

Coming up will be the Garden Tour and I will have more soon. Have a great week everyone and stay safe and well.
