It is almost time for our End-of-Summer Sizzling Sundae Party! Join us Friday, August 15th, from 3-4:30pm for a great time! Receive your NYS Reading Certificate, get a free book and make your own sundae! Save the date so you don’t miss out on all the fun!
Join Jesse A. Saperstein, best-selling author and autism advocate on August 7th, from 6:30pm-8:30pm, as he discusses his latest book and gives his hard-won insights on transitioning into adulthood. Rupert Holmes, multiple Tony Award-winning composer and author says Jesse’s book is “An invaluable, insightful, genially pragmatic and deeply touching road map for all those with Asperger’s Syndrome…and all those with someone in their life so challenged.” This event will fill up quickly so please call the library @ 635-8460 or e-mail email@example.com to reserve a seat.
Don’t forget to sign up for our NYS Themed Summer Reading Programs for all ages. Children ages 3-11 will sign up and receive a reading log which they fill out and bring to the library once a week (for 6 weeks) starting the week of July 7th. Then they will select a prize or free book. Teens ages 12-17 can also sign up and come in once a week as well to enter a raffle for a snack pack and, upon the occasion of finishing the book, enter a raffle for a gift card to B&N. Adults can join the fun as well. Simply come in once a week (no sign up necessary) and enter up to 5 submissions (depending on how many books you’ve read) to win a chance at a gift basket or B&N gift card.
SAVE THE DATE: Kids and Parents! Sunday, September 14 may seem far away, but it’s never to so too soon to plan to march in the Pleasant Valley Days Parade with the Pleasant Valley Library contingent! Step-off will be at 1. You will have soon choices: dress up as your favorite book character, or wear a “Cat-in-the-Hat” Hat, or carry a sign about neat stuff you can get at the Library! We want to have a BIG presence, so get a friend to come too! Creativity is always appreciated. And, if you have a Dr. Suess hat that we might borrow for the parade, please let us know.

The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.
Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
It’s been mentioned before, but bears repeating. The Book Discussion Group meets on the Third Wednesday of every month from 7-8 pm. Check out our events calendar for a listing of which titles have been picked for discussion.
