From The Stacks A column about the Tyrone-Snyder Public Library

August means an end to summer. Warm days are sometimes followed by unseasonably cool ones. Fall seems to be just a blink of the eye away.  August brings the end of the Summer Reading Program for youngsters. The theme for this year’s program, “Catch the Reading Bug”, enticed over 60 young participants to read 1,348 books. DelGrosso Amusement Park passes were awarded to Alita Fernandes, reader of 211 books; Lindsey  Walk with 57 books read; and Cassie Kasic with 21 books read. Congratulations to all participants and keep on reading!
If you’d like to indulge in a fall reading program of your own, you still have time to visit the Used Book sale being held this week.  Come search the tables for precious books you can read and re-read.  Look for that elusive cook book with that special recipe you’ve been seeking.  Discover the missing book needed to complete the series you’ve been collecting.
The following policies are in place for this book sale:
• All recently published hardback books $1 each
• All other hardback books $.50 each
• All paperback books $.25 each
Other sure signs that summer is almost over: class lists in the local paper signals the beginning of back-to-school shopping; band members and sports teams practicing for the upcoming season; season football tickets on sale. If you’re getting ready for the first home football game, plan on joining the Library board for the Tyrone-Snyder Public Library First Ever Tailgate before the Back Yard Brawl between Tyrone and Bellwood Antis football teams, Friday, August 29. The picnic pavilion of the Church of the Good Shepherd directly behind Grey Field will be the location.
The dinner will include barbecued chicken, potato salad, baked beans, and a delicious dessert. Dinner will be served from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and may be purchased for take out or eaten in.  Tickets cost $8 and are available at G & P Dollar Stretcher, the Tyrone Snyder Public Library, or from any library board member.
If you prefer participating in indoor sports, we have something for you, too. The 4th Annual Longaberger Basket Bingo will be held at the Bald Eagle Fire Hall on Sunday, September 7. A variety of lovely baskets filled with a fantastic selection of products and gift certificates will be awarded to lucky bingo winners. Tickets will be available at the library, from board members, and at the door. Join us for a relaxing afternoon and take away great gifts.
Detailed information about all of the upcoming programs will be posted as it becomes available on the library website
Summer is coming to an end as all seasons must. Autumn is just around the corner. Meet her with book in hand. We look forward to seeing you at the Library soon!
