Come and get it!

Yesterday, the library officially kicked off The Big Read! Mayor Dan Coody invited the entire community to participate.

3,000 copies of Fahrenheit 451 are being given away at the library while supplies last. Stop in, pick up a copy. Read it and pass it on!

Be ready to join us for a week of activities around the themes in the novel, April 14 - 21, 2007.

Have you read it??

I have read to page 116 and I must say that I love it! I am a tenth grader in Mrs. Hancock's English class and when she told us that we could get a free copy at the library, I jumped at the opportunity. I fell in love with this book after the first page. It seems that most teens today are Mildred. Book sales and newspaper sales have gone down and it's hard to find friends with whom you can share and discuss books. Teens and adults alike need to read this! It's a real eye-opener!
