It’s almost Summer!

CJZoologist and educator Scott “The Reptile Man” Petersen will help us get the summer off to a good start with his visit on June 20 where he will educate and entertain. Scott has been featured on Disney’s Bill Nye the Science Guy and on PBS’ Biz Kids. He has appeared on Northwest Afternoon, Evening Magazine, and NPR radio. Come pet an alligator or even hold a python. This is a free event suitable for all ages.

This year’s summer reading theme is “Build a Better World”. Readers will learn that by building a “Better You”, a “Better Family, or a “Better Community” they will help “Build a Better World”. Summer reading runs June 22  – July 27 with activity days every Thursday at 1:00 sharp. Readers are reminded to be on time so they don’t miss anything. Happy Reading!

“… age appears to be best in four things: old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.”

  — Francis Bacon, 1624

RuralHeritage

The Grandview Library Collection documents the founding and development of the city of Grandview, located in Washington State’s fertile Yakima Valley. Local tradition tells us that on a bright Indian summer morning in 1905, two men on horseback, Elza Dean and F.L. Pitman, pulled their mounts to a halt halfway between then new towns of Sunnyside and Prosser. They saw Snipes Mountain rising in the foreground, and the snow-capped peaks of Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier were outlined against the sky. “It’s a grand view!” Read more about our community in the Grandview Library Collection at Washington Rural Heritage a joint project of our library and the Washington State Library, Office of the Secretary of State.
