Library News, July 6, 2022

It’s July, and America’s Birthday Month, is upon us! Take a break from those hot days and step into your cool Converse County Library for books, movies, computer surfing and all of our summer reading activities.
We have fun for all ages with our “Oceans of Possibilities” Summer Reading program. It’s not too late to sign up and start logging to win great prizes, make new friends and learn new skills. If you’re stuck high and dry on the beach, dive on in and register at for a whole ocean of possibilities!
Tonight, (July 6), we have a countywide Book & Brew meeting at Ayres Natural Bridge Park. We will gather at 6 p.m. for our book discussion of Jodi Picoult’s bestselling novel, Songs of the Humpback Whale.
Members may bring snacks to share. This group meets once per month to catch up with friends and talk about books. If you’re interested in joining the book club, join us this evening! Or, check out how to contact us at the end of this article.
There will be an Adult Craft Class July 7 in the MakerSpace from 6-8 p.m. We will be learning to needle felt mermaids, again in keeping with the summer reading program theme. This class is free and materials will be provided. If you already have needle felting tools, please bring them along. For planning purposes, please register in advance.
Next up this week is an author appearance by Cynthia Galey Peck, with her new memoir, Wyoming Ranch Girl: A Journey Seeking Respect, Security and Solace.” Please meet this author at your CCL Glenrock July 9 from 11 a.m. to 12 noon, or at the CCL Douglas from 2-3 p.m.
