July is around the corner!

All CMRLS libraries will be closed
Wednesday, July 4,
and will re-open for
regular business hours on July 5.
Happy 4th of July!
With that said, there are alot of things to celebrate during the month of July! It's Family Reunion Month, National Baked Bean, Blueberries, Grilling, Horseradish, and Hot Dog Month, also! It sounds an awful lot like a picnic, doesn't it? Here are 6 great recipe books for just that!
If you have children home for the summer, you've probably heard, "I'm bored," at least once. Help pass the month of July (also Anti-Boredom Month) with crafts, reading, or outdoor games.
And, there are at least 2 more Summer Reading Programs at your local library. You'll want to check out the CMRLS calendar for dates, times, and locations.
Don't forget about the Auto Repair Reference Center (ARRC) when you are planning a car trip. Give your car that needed check up and have a safe trip. Have your library card in hand and give your library a call. They will be glad to answer your questions and give you the code to access this valuable resource.
Have a safe and HAPPY 4th of July!
