Minot Public Library
1st Meeting of the Books 'n Brews Book Club: 07/20/2015
We are happy to announce the 1st meeting of the Books 'n Brew Book Club. The event will be taking place at the Tap Room, 23 Main Street S (located on side street between Rick's Jewelry and Rooster's), on Wednesday, August 19th @ 700pm. This will be for patrons 21 or older only.
The book we will be discussing is the best-seller "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand. It tells the story of Louie Zamperini, an American Olympic track star who survived week adrift at sea and several Japanese POW camps during World War II. Actress Angelina Jolie recently made this into a film.
10 copies of "Unbroken" from a state book club kit are available for pickup at the Minot Public Library in addition to copies the library already owns. If you yourself own the book or previously have read it, you are more than welcome to join us too.
Hope to see you there!
Adult Summer Reading is Up, Up, and Away: 06/16/2015
Get away from the everyday world by signing up for the Minot Public Library’s 2015 Adult Summer Reading Program. Want to travel to exotic locales? Go on an adventure into outer space? Take a trip back in time? Your great escape begins by picking up a tally sheet at the library’s main circulation desk. For every 500 pages read, you earn one ticket for entry into a drawing for one of five fabulous prizes. In addition to the tickets, the first 75 patrons to reach 1000 pages receive a USB car charger plug. The program continues through Thursday, August 13th. Logs will be due back at the library on August 14th. For more information, contact Brendan Chella, the Adult Services Librarian, at 701-852-1045 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy your amazing journey!
