Summer Reading Fun!!

The children and young adult Summer Reading Program Dream Big Read! Is underway!  This year the ONLY rules are that books must be at an individual’s reading level, and that they be checked out of the library overnight. – WOW how great is that??

Free choice for EVERY book recorded on an individual’s chart. 
For each completed book a reader or listener may choose a grab bag, with a limit of 10 prizes per participant.
We continue to have Preschool Story Hour on Tuesdays at 10:30 with a preschool craft.  This summer we have added a craft time for those ages six and up on Tuesdays at 3:00.  Our first craft were fairy houses which can be seen at Steamboat Lane located at Gardiner’s beautiful Waterfront Park.
For those who are taking part in our Year of Reading, this month the theme is Summer Fun. Read a book, watch a movie, listen to an item, pop in a music CD, read a magazine, that somehow pertains to . . . anything (yes, we are being very relaxed about the relationship of your item to our theme) and have your name entered for the July drawing!  This month’s sponsor is Deb’s Ice Cream & Mini Golf located at 132 Water Street in Randolph.

June is Art Month at the Gardiner Public Library!

Local artist, Mario Del Rio, a.k.a. Cuba, is sponsoring the month of June at Gardiner Public Library for our Year of Reading.

Mario, or Cuba as he says people know him, has donated at piece of his artwork for our June drawing.  Kan 2 Kanvas is the name of this new business venture for Mario.  His medium is spray paint and water in a spray bottle.  All of his art is as “green” as he can make it.  Mario uses recycled or found materials when he is creating – an example of this can be found at the library.  This particular “canvas” is actually the top of a T.V. table that Mario and his manager, Devon Tracy, re-appropriated for a new use.
Mario does custom art work as well – “anything from cell phone covers to cars” is how he puts it.  All of his works are what he refers to as “Astrological Spraypaint”.  Most – if not all – of his paintings are 3D, so if you have the glasses . . .
When asked, Mario suggested art as our theme, specifically “spray paint art”, “graffiti” or “urban art”.  All great ideas, but we are being as general about our theme as possible, so art it is!
Come on in, explore an item involving art in some way, and enter your name for our drawing!
