June's book: A Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling
The Fishers Island Library has been hosting monthly Adult Book Discussions on a regular basis since 1996. All reading members of our island community are welcome to attend. Even if you haven't read the book being discussed, it is likely that you'll find a way to contribute to the discussion.
Book selections range from classics, biographies, books on history and current events, popular beach reads, mystery, science fiction, children's classics and more.
Participants change through the season, although there is a core group of nine adults who attend nearly of all of the discussions. Books to be discussed are chosen by the readers.
If you are excited by a book and want to discuss it with others, you can add it to the selection list.
Discussion dates and titles are posted on the Community Web Site and in the FOG HORN.
Come! Share your love of books in the Library's cozy reading room.
Join us Tuesdays at 4:15 at the library for a program geared to children ages 3-5.
Sometimes we read a story, sometimes someone tells us a story or sometimes we share an interactive hour of fun led by a parent, sibling or young adult.
Children must be accompanied by a responsible sitter or adult.
Also stay tuned for details on Connecticut Storyteller's Center's Peg Donavan who will perform at two Littlest Listeners programs. Tuesday, July 16th and Tuesday, August 15th. Details on time and place to follow.
For many years the library has had jigsaw puzzles set up in the Martha Ferguson Memorial Reading room. It's the perfect activity for young and old. Also a nice reason to escape the house on a rainy day!
So stop on in, put in a couple of pieces and meet new people!
To honor Peter’s many years as President of the Library Board and his continued service and as a tribute to his love of sailing, the library initiated The Peter Brinckerhoff Nautical Lecture Series in 2010.
Stay tuned for dates/times of the 2013 Lecture.
Many young islanders have traveled far and others have found adventure close to home.
If you have a journey to share, we encourage you to become part of our Young Adventurers Series. If you know of someone who might be appropriate for this series, we want to hear about that too.
This program is designed for teenagers and young adults and usually relies on a mixed media format but anyone who would like to share his or her adventure can feel free to contact us.
