Those of you who have been in the Library recently--and many of you have since we have been unusually busy all summer--will have noticed a strong smell of paint in the air. Sorry about that, but the Festival Room, in which all of our more popular events take place, was in need of freshening up. By the time this column appears on August 21st, the paint smell will be a faint memory (I hope) so come in to admire the result and, at the same time, take the opportunity to buy some books at our GIANT BOOK SALE which will be in full swing until 5PM on the 23rd.

When this column appears in the Pelham News it will be August 7th and almost the last day of the summer children's programs. There will be one segment of Mad Science, namely Lights, Colour, Action, on August 12th and the end of the Summer Reading Club that same week. The Reading Club BBQ--children who signed up for the Club will get a free hot dog or hamburger and a drink--will be at noon on Friday August 15th. The only other event, which is open to both children and adults/seniors, is the Ice Cream Social and involves making ice cream in a baggie and then consuming the result. Delicious!

Did you see an idea in a library setting that you want to share with us? We would like to send out a challenge to Pelham residents this summer - when you are travelling, visit local public libraries in other communities and snap a picture of something you think is awesome, fabulous, or state-of-the-art.
