Saturday, June 27, 2015    10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

To support our summer reading programs, the Friends of Mt. Pleasant Library are hosting a sidewalk paperback book sale and flea market.  Select from our assortment of children and adult paperbacks in all genres. Adult paperbacks will be .50 each or 4 for $1. Children’s books will be .25 each or 6 for $1. Meanwhile, check out our flea market featuring costume jewelry, VHS tapes, plants, and a potpourri of household items.

Be sure to visit the 4 Safety Van parked by the library from 10 a.m. until noon. Sponsored by Hasbro Children’s Hospital and Dunkin Donuts, its program will raise awareness and educate families on water safety through the use of a 2-minute TV video,  interactive computer tablets, and giveaways.

In case of rain, the sale will be held inside the library. So, come rain or shine , the sale is on!


 The 2015 Summer Reading Program will take place from July 6 to August 13.

Pick up a reading slip at the library and see how many categories of books you can read this summer.

The theme this year will be BOOK VENTURE: 2015 Reading Challenge, using a checklist by the web site POPSUGAR.  Adults and Young Adults are challenged to read books from a list of 50 recommended categories, many of which will challenge the reader’s regular book choices.

I Will Always Write Back: How One Letter Changed Two Lives

by Caitlin Alifirenka and Martin Ganda, with Liz Welch

This is an opportunity for parents to share a reading experience with their young adult child. Read the book during the summer and then join us on Tuesday, September 15th at 5:15pm to discuss the book and hear how the different generations view the same book.

Books are limited in the library system however, so ask at the circulation desk to see if one is available.  We hope you join us!


Keep those receipts coming. There is a box at the circulation desk for you to place your receipts. This is an easy way to earn money for our library.


 Please donate your loose change in the penny jar at the circulation desk. All the money raised will be used to purchase books!
