Chrisman Library News

Submitted by the Chrisman Public Library

Thanks to the Gary Mills family the Chrisman Public Library is purchasing new books for the children, and even some adults, to read and enjoy. There are SO many books to choose from, we asked children to give us a recommendation of books they would like to read from our Library. The children gave one or two selections, which we will be ordering. One child, Issac, the 12 year old grandson of one of our patrons, sent us a whole list! The Chrisman Public Library has some of the books on Issac’s list but we’re going to purchase many of his choices. Thank you to all the children and to Issac for helping us grow our Juvenile and Young Adult book selections!
The summer reading program is done as of today but at this writing our total numbers are unknown. Watch for next weeks article. We would, once again, like to thank First Farmers Bank and Trust and Longview Bank and Trust for their financial donations to purchase items for gift packs for the participants of the program. A HUGE thank you to Mama Sue at the Frostop for providing the free ice cream/small drink to the children for reading the required amount of books. We are grateful to our community for helping our Library. Here are some excerpts written by the children/students this week:
“Cara, the Camp Fairy” by Daisy Meadows by E. – The book is about “When Rachel and Kristy go to camp things aren’t going as planned so they have to go and find Cara’s magical items to make camp fun again!.” E’s favorite part is “When they fly on Midnight, the owl, across a big forest!.”
“The Saddle Club Trail Mates – #5” by Bonnie Bryant by W. – The book is about “When they go on a trail, and Patch the horse gets out of control.” W’s favorite part is “When the horse gets out of control”.
“Click Clack, Quack to School” by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin by E. – “The book was about Farmer Brown and the animals go to school for the Farm Lunch.” E’s favorite part is “When Farmer Brown says to Duck “don’t be so Duck-y.”
“Brave – A Mother’s Love” – by Melissa Lagonegro by J. – The book was about “the Queen wants Merida to marry one of the Lords sons.” J’s favorite part is “When Merida cuts the family quilt.”
