Summer Reading Displays – July

For the Summer Reading Program, Reader’s Advisory puts out different displays in our area that tie into the overarching summer theme.  For this summer’s theme, “Read to the Rhythm,” our book, music, and movie displays are all about music!  Anything that is on the cubes can be checked out, just like anything else in the library!

Right now, there are five different displays going.

The first book cube is a split between “Good Vibrations,” feel good fiction inspired by the Beach Boys, and “Killing Me Softly,” murder mysteries and thrillers inspired by Roberta Flack’s seminal hit.

The second book cube is a split between “Family Affair,” selections of family sagas, and “Secret Agent Man,” spy novels and thrillers inspired by Johnny Rivers’ classic tune.

The music display is “Sentimental Journey”, a collection of Big Band hits that will transport you back to the 1940s.

The movie display is “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas,” a selection of Christmas movies to tie in with a giveaway in honor of Christmas in July.

The teen display is “I Kissed a Girl and I Liked It,” romantic coming of age novels inspired by Katy Perry’s hit song.

Come in and check out these displays for yourself; you can always take something home!

Summer Reading Displays

For the Summer Reading Program, Reader’s Advisory puts out different displays in our area that tie into the overarching summer theme.  For this summer’s theme, “Read to the Rhythm,” our book, music, and movie displays are all about music!  Anything that is on the cubes can be checked out, just like anything else in the library!

Right now, there are five different displays going.

The first book cube is a split between “Battle Cry of Freedom,” Civil War fiction inspired by the music of that period, specifically the soundtrack of Ken Burns’ The Civil War, and “The Rake’s Song,” Regency romances with rakes and rogues inspired by the album The Hazards of Love by The Decemberists.

The second book cube is a split between “Yesterday,” selections of historical fiction inspired by the classic Beatles tune, and “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys,” western novels whose choice were inspired by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jenning’s cover of a seminal country song by Ed Bruce.

The music display is “Stayin’ Alive”, a rip roaring collection of 70s albums that will keep you dancing disco, inspired, of course, by the Bee Gees.

The movie display is “I Will Survive,” a selection of disaster movies inspired by Gloria Gaynor’s hit song.

The teen display is “To Infinity, and Beyond!” inspired by the movie Toy Story and its soundtrack, featuring science fiction.

Come in and check out these displays for yourself; you can always take something home!

Summer Reading is Here!

Our Summer Reading Program for Adults and Teens, “Read to the Rhythm,” began today!  This vibrant program designed to keep readers of all ages reading throughout the summer goes until August 9th.

People who have a Rolling Meadows library card are encouraged to sign up at the Reader’s Advisory desk in the library.  At sign up, you’ll get a goodie bag with lots of treats, plus two music quizzes to fill out and return for end of summer prizes!

For adults, each book you finish gets you a ticket for our weekly paperback raffle, and for teens, you can read a book, listen to a CD, read a magazine, or watch a movie for your raffle tickets.

Keep an eye out, because there just might be more prizes popping up during the summer!
