The Clay County Public Library Board will meet this Wednesday, May 20, at 1:00. The meeting is open to the public, but we will be unable to check items out at this time.

The Summer Reading Program story hours will begin on Tuesday, May 26, at 9:30. Our first special performer is Conductor Jack, who will be here on June 2 at 9:30. We would like to thank our local businesses who have contributed to our program this year, especially Tri-County Electric, Clay County Manor, Head Equipment, Celina Lumber Company, and James D. White. It is thanks to our businesses that we are able to invite entertainers to our story hours, as well as supply craft materials and reading incentives.

There will also be another beginners computer class held at the library on 

May 29 at 9:30. Gina Hunter from the Upper Cumberland Regional Library will be here to offer instructions on basic computer use to the first six patrons who arrive. During this time, computer use will be limited so you may want to plan accordingly.

Teen night will also be on Friday, May 29, beginning at 6:00. Last month the teens voted on pizza and a movie. If you are a teen or have a teen who plans on attending, please let us know ahead of time so we can order pizzas.

There are several new books in the library this week, including “Vision in White” by Nora Roberts, “Wicked Prey” by John Sandford, “Seducing an Angel” by Mary Balogh, “Gone Tomorrow” by Lee Child, and “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” by Seth Grahame-Smith. New at the library on DVD are “Taken”, “Quarantine”, “The Reader”, “Bride Wars”, “Beverly Hills Chihuahua”, “Last Chance Harvey”, “The Tale of Desperaux”, and “Frost Nixon”. Come in and check us out!
