Troy Library May events
by Lincoln County Public Library
May 1, 2011

The Lincoln County Public Library in Troy will be presenting a full calendar of programs during the month of May. All events are free and open to the public.

The Troy Friends of the Library will meet on Wednesday, May 11 at 1 pm. All are welcome.

The libraries in Libby, Troy, and Eureka will be closed to the public on Friday, May 20 for a staff in-service day. Periodic in-service days allow staff to maintain the quality of service provided despite recent budget cuts.

The libraries in Troy, Eureka, and Libby will be closed on Saturday, May 28 for Memorial Day.

Every Thursday in May kids and families are welcome to attend the Troy Library’s after-school program. The programs are held from 4:15 pm until 5 pm and will continue on Thursday afternoons throughout the school year.

The Troy Writing Workshop Group will have special meeting dates in May. This month, the meetings will be on May 11 and May 18. Both meetings will be held at the Troy Library and will begin at 6:30. The group welcomes writers of all ages, but please be advised that the group will not censor anything. New members are also welcome and should contact Stacy at the Troy Library for more information.

The Troy Library’s Book Discussion Group will meet on Thursday, May 19 at 5 pm. This month, the group will discuss the novel, The Wave by Todd Strasser. The Wave is based on a true incident that occurred in a high school history class in California in 1969. In an effort to help his students understand the powerful forces of group pressure that pervaded many historic movements such as Nazism, a history teacher introduces a "new" system to his students. And before long "The Wave," with its rules of "strength through discipline, community, and action," sweeps from the classroom through the entire school.

The Troy Library’s film series, "You Could Have Read the Book", continues on Friday, May 27 at 6 pm with the 1985 film Return to Oz (Rated PG, 110 minutes). This adaptation of L. Frank Baum's classic story chronicles Dorothy's return to the land of Oz where she must rescue her companions from the clutches of the evil Nome King who has destroyed the Emerald City.

The last Friday of every month is Amnesty Day at the Lincoln County Libraries. This month, Amnesty Day is Friday, May 27. Any materials less than 90 days overdue which are returned in good condition to any of the three libraries on that day will have all penalties waived. Overdue interlibrary loan materials are not included.
