While not everyone can take a summer vacation, reading a book can always help you travel to someplace new and exciting. This month’s reading challenge is to read a book set in a place you have never visited. It can be somewhere you’d like to visit (Hawaii for example where “The Descendants” by Hemmings is set) or a place you are unlikely to ever get a chance to go (like in “The Martian” by Weir). This challenge is fairly broad and allows you to use your imagination.
Give someone a shot this summer! Before you start your summer vacation, lend a hand by lending your arm. Help someone in your community this summer by donating blood. The American Red Cross will be on-site at the Lewisville Branch Library on Thursday, May 30th from 11 am - 3:30 pm. Appointments are preferred. Please call (336)703-2940. Walk-ins are also welcome.
