Rock Summer Reading
On Thursday, June 28, starting at 6 p.m., the Guilderland Library ROCKS SUMMER READING!
“Libraries Rock!” is this year’s theme, and we have a wonderful summer planned, one packed with activities, crafts, programs and, of course, books. When you come to our Rockin’ Sign-Up not only will you get details about all the great events and concerts, but you can also Build-Your-Own Ice Cream Sundae! The ice cream is being served up by some super scoopers. It’s going to be a great kick-off!
If you don’t already have a Summer Reading brochure, you can pick one up at the library. And you can check the Library’s Program calendar at guilderlandlibrary.org to see what’s coming up in July and August.
“Tinker to Evers to Chance”
If you’re a baseball fan, there is a double-header coming up on Saturday, June 30, that you just can’t miss.
It starts at 2 p.m. at the Library when author David Rapp, retired editor of Congressional Quarterly, discusses his new book Tinker to Evers to Chance: The Chicago Cubs and the Dawn of Modern America. Rapp’s book details the career of Johnny Evers, Troy native and Hall-of-Fame Second Baseman on the Cubs, who was one third of “a trio of bear cubs, fleeter than birds” who were amazingly efficient at turning double plays.
The second part of our double-header is that you’re invited to come to Valley Cats Stadium for a 7 p.m. game when the Cats take on the Hudson Valley Renegades. Not only is it a great baseball game, but it’s Star Wars Night (wear your Star Wars gear, and mingle with your favorite Star Wars characters) and FIREWORKS follow the game. Discounted tickets are just $10, available exclusively at the Library. There is a limited amount of tickets left, so get yours now.
