“I divide all readers into two classes;
those who read to remember and those who read to forget!”
-William Lyon Phelps-
The “dog days of August” often bring thoughts of cool Alaskan cruises to richer Texans and longing thoughts of tubing in the cold streams of the Texas Hill Country to those with more modest budgets. You can save even more money by just coming by and enjoying the FREE air-conditioning at both branches of the Pasadena Public Library while you are experiencing the fun of our Youth, Teen, Adult and Senior Summer Reading Clubs with their great prizes.
Come learn about the treasures of ancient Egypt and experience the wonders of the Maya in the Houston Museum of Natural Science’s giant inflatable Discovery Dome, free of charge (with free refreshments too!) at your Pasadena Library. See what new bargains the Friends of the Library are offering in their newly-restocked Book Store and in their sale cases. You won’t find a better deal anywhere, and all proceeds from these sales go right into helping the Library provide all these lovely free programs and to things like the new film projector at the Fairmont Branch Library.
FIRST MONDAY BOOK CLUB
The Fairmont Branch Library’s First Monday Book Club will discuss Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan, and will meet on Monday, August 5 at 6:00 p.m. in the Conference Room at the Fairmont Library. Come follow the twists as intelligent and beautiful Cambridge student Serena Frome joins MI5 in 1972 England and finds turmoil as she ends up in the “Sweet Tooth” program to covertly influence promising young writer Tom Haley.
TEA-TIME MYSTERY CLUB
The Central Library’s Tea-Time Mystery Book Club will discuss Murder in the Marais by Cara Black and will meet in the Board Room of the Central Library at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, August 19. Coffee, tea and cool summer snacks will be served as the group follows Parisian private investigator Aimee Leduc, who takes the results of a secret decoding job to a nice old Jewish lady…only to find her strangled.
