Adult Summer Reading Club is here!
This year’s theme is A Universe of Stories, in celebration of space exploration. Registration is open to all Port Washington Library cardholders and begins June 19. You may submit book reviews starting July 1 and the program runs seven weeks ending August 16.
In addition to the Reading Club, PWPL will have exciting programming tied to our summer theme. On July 8 at 7:30, Tony Traguardo will perform “Is There Music on the Moon?” On July 12 at 12:15, our Sandwiched In program is called Apollo at 50: Race to the Moon conducted by a lecturer from the Cradle of Aviation. Our popular Trivia Night is back on June 30 to test your knowledge of all things space related. On June 31, we welcome The Moon and You, a folk/soul band from Asheville, NC and featuring Port native Melissa Hyman. Space-themed films will be screened throughout the summer. Throughout the month of July, monitors throughout the Library will feature clips of current and former Port Washington residents, offering stories and anecdotes connected to Neil Armstrong’s historic first walk on the moon. Our Media Department has also compiled a reel of classic scenes from some of the best moonrelated movies and music video clips.
The Adult Summer Reading Club is made possible by the Friends of the Library.
