Welcome back, college students! We wish you the best of luck in your studies this semester. When course content leaves you feeling exhausted or in need of a break, we invite you to stop by. Aside from the resources we have to help you with your course work, we also have a variety of entertainment available to the public.
For a temporary escape from our rural community, check out our video game collection. Travel to alternate universes that feature underwater cities, alien planets, and ornate castles. We have epic RPGs and action games, including: Bioshock, the Borderlands games, several Final Fantasy titles, as well as one of my personal favorites, Dragon Age: Origins, available for PS3 and Xbox 360.
This year our Summer Reading Program has been all about science and invention. Miss Val has been busy assisting our young patrons with their experiments. Our Facebook page is filled with photos of our clever little scientists and their scientific adventures.
Fortunately, our real life experiments have been largely successful. But sometimes an experiment goes awry and chaos ensues. Since Mary Shelley’s 19th century novel Frankenstein, readers have been fascinated by the dark side of science. This week we invite you to explore novels featuring mad scientists and their botched inventions. Experience the horror of man-made monsters and global terror from the safety of your armchair!
Once summer is in full swing, many of us alter our meal plans. Whether it is to beat the heat, to get outside, or just for the taste, grilling becomes a top priority for nearly 80% of the American population according to the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association. In addition to grilling, summer is a time to explore new sides and salads, and perhaps something for the trails and canoe routes as well. Canton Free Library has you covered on all fronts, with plenty of new recipes in print format and online. Don’t let past BBQ disasters deter you! We have cookbooks and magazines for all skill levels, from novice cooks to grill masters.
Experiment with new flavors with the latest issue of Cuisine at Home. This month’s issue features Brazilian Backyard BBQ, grilled flatbread, and summer salad recipes. Coriander Beef Tenderloin Medallions, Achiote Shrimp and Zucchini Slaw are just a few of the mouthwatering recipes included.
