The month of May brings great adult programming to the Pearl Public Library!
For starters, the Chapter 1 Book Club will feature Neil Hayes’ When the Game Stands Tall: The Story of the De La Salle Spartans and Football’s Longest Winning Streak on Tuesday, May 10 from 6-7 p.m.
“The Streak” it’s called. That’s the California high school’s phenomenal 151-game football winning streak from 1992 -2004. Interestingly enough, the school’s legendary coach, Bob Ladouceur was teaching these young men more about life than about how to set a national football game winning record. When the Game Stands Tall features Coach Lad, who was also a religious studies teacher as well as the football coach, and the inspiration he imparts to his players.
What a great story! You don’t want to miss this Chapter 1 Book Club! It's a free adult program, and remember, you don't have to be a member to come join in the discussion. Light refreshments and door prizes provided.

If making crafts is your type of fun, May’s Simply Crafts is decorative Mason jars with a peep hole! But, that’s not all! Part two of the this craft night on Thursday, May 19, from 6-7 p.m. is a homemade salt scrub using Epsom salt, olive oil and fragrant vanilla! Mmmmm, leaves your skin oh-so-soft, and it’s very relaxing! Couldn’t be easier to make. What better vessel to carry the salt scrub than the decorative Mason jar! See! Two crafts in one!
