June’s Book Displays

“Time to Grab a Great Book and Head to the Beach” is the theme for our first book display, a collection of books for your reading pleasure.  All are light reads to take to the beach, on vacation, or even enjoy in your yard. Besides the books, the display includes a couple of bibliography handouts.

Our second display is “Cities of the World”, which consists mostly of
oversize, photographic books about the cities.  Take a tour of these
beautiful cities without leaving your home while learning  the stories of these historic places. You might even get motivated to plan a vacation.

Our 2 mini displays* are:

“In Remembrance of Anthony Bourdain”, an influential American
chef, author and TV personality (June 25, 1956 to June 8, 2018) and
“Local Author Showcase”, a display of books by local authors.

*mini-displays are subject to change at any time*

And on the third floor:

“Men’s Health Month” is the topic for the June health display. Become aware and educated about your health to prevent disease and to live a long healthy life. The display also includes handouts, including Prevention Guidelines for Men 40-49, 50-64 and 65+.

“Gay Pride Month” which features books about and by gay people.
Learn the history of the struggle for their equal rights and their internal struggles.  A very appropriate topic for our times.

It’s also time to sign up for the 2018 Adult Summer Reading Club. On June 27 at 7 pm the library will host Beach Reads Evening Title Swap which is just one of the club’s events and open to all.

Syosset Public Library is your place for enjoyment and learning!

Love, Simon

Comedy  PG-13

Everyone deserves a great love story, but for seventeen-year-old Simon Spier, it’s a little more complicated. He hasn’t told his family or friends that he’s gay, and he doesn’t know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying, and life-changing.

Tomb Raider

Action PG-13

Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she discovers the island where her father disappeared.
