Like chocolate? Feel like making

some this summer? Make sure you

come out for all the great programs

the Shorewood-Troy Public Library

has planned for you. Not only can you

make chocolate, but all you actors,

directors, and writers are welcome to

join us for our Fractured Fairy Tales

program, where teens write, produce

and perform the old fairy tales we all

know, but with a new twist. If you are

in the mood to be pampered, or want

to make a great gift for someone, come

to our Spa Day Creations. You will

make some bath salts as well as a

beautiful candle holder. Ever forget

someones birthday, or just want to

send a quick note saying hello? Come

to our Summer Cards program, and

have cards on hand for the next time

you need one. All the programs start at

2:00 p.m. on Tuesdays except for the

Fractured Fairy Tales performance

which is on July 19 at 11:00 a.m.

Check out all the programs planned

this summer.

After going to a program, grab

some book notes so you can keep track

of all the great books you are reading

this summer. Like last year, its based

on the time you spend reading. Make

sure you enter to have a chance to win

some of the fabulous prizes from the

library this summer. Prizes include gift

cards for Barnes and Noble, Target

and iTunes. Obviously, the more you

read and the more book notes you

turn in, the better your chances to win

the prize you would enjoy the most.

We cant wait to see you this

summer, so when you get bored, come

play some games, read some books,

win some prizes and make some

chocolate, all at the library.
