One World, Many Stories
The 2011 Boscobel Summer Library program was a smash hit with children and parents alike. Volunteers who brought in their collections and tales from exotic places around the globe, guest performers and local businesses who donated great gifts and prizes ensured that our kids had fun reading and learning all summer long at the library. We're taking a short break over the next few weeks to gear up for Fall pre-K storytime, which will begin October 12th.
In the meantime, don't forget to take a look at photos and memories from the summer program. The "One World" slideshow and photos will be on display at the library in the coming weeks and are available online at the library's facebook fan page BoscobelPublicLibrary.
For tweens, teens and adults the library's Traveling Trolls will continue to adventure through the end of August. Astro, Helga, Captain Jack and the rest of the gang are still available to go on a late summer vacation with you! Stop by the library to read all about their exploits- our trolls have gone everywhere from Norway to North Carolina! Don't forget to check out their incredible travel blog at http://havetrollwilltravel.tumblr.com/ and remember to vote for your favorite troll vacation adventure. The family that brings back the most popular troll adventure story will win tickets to an awesome destination at the end of the month!

The true story of "a thief, a detective and a world of literary obsession". do you ever fear that ebooks will replace print? This month's read reveals why that will never come to pass, and much more about the intricate world of antiquarian books, collectors and their passion for the printed word.
