Hi there! It’s the busy season for the library right now, as everyone’s getting ready for the end of the school year and the great migration of kids and students from their schools during the day to vacations, sleeping in, and yes, the library too. The parts and pieces are set for this year’s Summer Reading Program, which we are happy to say will have a program for adults this year! We’ve had many people asking for us to do something for adults, and this year, we’re delivering. Keep an eye on the News for when the Scout Summer Reading badges launch for this year.
Coming up in a couple of weeks are a some major sporting events – the FIFA Women’s World Cup kicks off in Canada next month, so if you’re a fan of women’s soccer, there will be plenty to see on the airwaves. The US Drew Australia, Sweden and Nigeria for their group stage, with FiveThirtyEight classifying it as the “Group of Death” for this tournament. The second weekend of June heralds the U.S. Open golf tournament at Chambers Bay, so whatever your plans may be, if you get too close to University Place, you may have a long traffic wait to get to your destination. Thankfully, the golf tournament only lasts four days, so things should return to normal during the following week.
Has everyone been liking the new Guilty Pleasures series of badges? It always seems like there’s something that you absolutely adore that someone else goes “Wha? Why would you like that?” over, sparking a long quest to try and get them to like you, too. Reading some of your offerings inspires a bit of nostalgia for the past…or a worry that someone’s going to remake it into something horrible in the future. It’s still been very entertaining to see what your likes are, so we hope you continue to tell us about them.
As always, if you have any questions or comments about SCOUT, or if you spot something not working, use the feedback button at the bottom of the page – it helps us know what we need to focus on.
See you next time!
