ON THE LIBRARY
What could be better than reading a new bestseller or an old favorite
this summer? By participating in the library’s summer reading program
for adults, you can enjoy reading and have a chance to win a prize. The
program starts June 28 and ends August 6. Read any books of your choice.
Submit an entry form with a short description for each book. Place the
form in the designated box near the main desk.
Some of last year’s readers write:
Kilgaren by Isabelle Holland – "This is a romantic
suspense story that will fascinate, rivet and keep the reader guessing
until the very end. Excellent!!!" (Shirley Mangels).
Sea Hunter by Paul Garrison – "A riveting adventure
about the believable misuse of genetic engineering teamed with
technology. David Hope and Sally Moffitt not only defeat the bad guys,
they free the dolphins in distress." (Linda Orpet).
The Diamond Conspiracy by Nicolas Kublicki – "As the
Department of Justice attempts to crush a company monopolizing the
diamond trade, the main characters face danger and excitement."
Fried Butter: A Food Memoir by Abe Opincar –
"Experiences with food linked with life experiences of author and
his friends, family and acquaintances." (Shawntelle Santas).
"Spotlight on the Library" article was written by Mary Jacobs,
the David A. Howe Public Library director. Articles are written and published monthly in the
Wellsville Daily Reporter.

to read. Well written, full of historic references and knowledge and
just a great story. Highly recommended." (Halle Reed).
Mister Posterior and the Genius Child by Emily Jenkins –

parts, disturbing in others, always well written and nostalgic."

that takes place on a cruise ship carrying dance companies, opera
singers and wealthy patrons." (Jennifer Graves).
