Published DateTILTON — Hall Memorial Library's Adult Summer Reading program this year is Groundbreaking Reads, and people are challenged to "dig into" the new On-line Public Access Catalog (OPAC) implemented at the beginning of 2013.
People who review a book using OPAC will be entered into a raffle during the months of June, July and August. Each review earns a chance to win a surprise bag of prizes donated by local businesses.
The grand prize is a Nook E-reader with a second prize of a print of an original painting by Maggie McCall; both will be raffled off at the end of the Summer Reading Program.
The adult reading program begins June 8 and ends on August 31. All reviews must be submitted by August 31 to be entered into the raffles. The Nook E-reader will be raffled on Thursday, Sept. 5 at 3 p.m. This raffle is open to all patrons of the library with active cards. The review must be on either an Adult Fiction or Non-Fiction Book. YA, J, and E book reviews are welcomed but are not eligible for the raffle. Employees of the library are not eligible to enter.

June, 28, 12 p.m. YA Movie Afternoon - Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants A wonderful film brought to life by four amazing girls-- Alexis Bledel as shy Lena, Amber Tamblyn as rebel Tibby, Blake Lively as fun-loving Bridget, and America Ferrera as writer Carmen. Each girl has a different story to deliver from different parts of the world. Lena's in Greece with her grandparents, Tibby's at home working a dull job at Wallman's, Bridget is at soccer camp in Mexico, and Carmen is visiting her father in South Carolina.
Together, they form the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants after discovering that a hot pair of Levi's fits each of their different body types perfectly. They decide that the best thing to do is to share the jeans since they'll be spending the summer apart, wearing them for one week and then mailing them to the next person. The jeans travel between each girl throughout the movie, each time getting a new story and opening up new chapters in these girls' lives.
