UNION — How good are you at solving puzzles?
The Union County Carnegie Library is holding a “Guess The Book Title” Competition as part of its 2016 Adult Summer Reading Program.
Each week, there will be a puzzle consisting of pictures which will provide clues to the name of a particular book. Look closely at each photograph and try to put what they are showing together to come up with the correct name of the book in each week’s contest.
The first 25 people who come into the library each week with the correct answer will win small prize. (Limit one person/family.)
For this week’s puzzle, the deadline to bring your correct answer is July 1.
Monday, Tuesday & Thursday 9 a.m.-7 p.m.
Wednesday and Friday 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
Saturday 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
The Board of Trustees of the Library will have a board meeting June 28 at the library from 5-6 p.m. The meeting is open to the public.
We have free lunches all summer for anyone 18 and under, Monday-Friday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. All are welcome! Children under 12 need adult supervision.
The Library will be closed Saturday, July 2 and Monday, July 4.
