Chapter Book Readers "Stick Together!"

The Greenville Public Library invites all chapter book readers to sign up for "Stick Together." StickTogether™ is a fun and collaborative activity where participants apply colored stickers to a large coded grid. Once all the stickers are attached, a vibrant mosaic image is revealed! To be a participant, please sign up at the circulation desk. For each book read, you will receive five stickers to place on the grid. After the grid is complete, one lucky participant will take it home!

National Vanilla Ice Cream Day

National Vanilla Ice Cream Day is observed annually on July 23rd. As part of National Ice Cream Month and not too far from National Ice Cream Day, National Vanilla Ice Cream Day honors one of the most popular of the ice cream flavors. In North America, the most common use of vanilla flavoring is for ice cream. Celebrate by making your own vanilla ice cream using this recipe. On Monday, July 23rd, the Greenville Library will be handing out color-changing ice cream scoops and small cups of vanilla ice cream to patrons who check out items. We'd like to thank First National Bank for sponsoring this holiday.
