The Corrine Costin Gibson Memorial Library in Port St. Joe will offer Tales on Tuesdays for the little ones weekly beginning Sept. 9. Children from 9 months to preschoolers are welcome to join us every Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. ET for stories, games, and fun. This will be a parent/child activity that helps develop a love for books and literacy. Please make plans to join us!

The Charles Whitehead Public Library in Wewahitchka will offer their After School Program for school-aged children at 3:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month beginning Aug. 12. They also offer Wee Read for preschoolers every Monday at 11 a.m.

During the first two weeks of August, the library in Port St. Joe will be holding a book sale featuring mysteries and young adult selections. Teachers should stop in to stock up on some great bargains. We will also have lots of magazines (such as National Geographic) to help your student projects get off to a great start. And there’s a selection of free Reader’s Digest Condensed Books for the taking--anyone interested?

Keep your eyes and ears open for a guest author at the end of September. Bestselling Florida author Tim Dorsey will be at the Port St. Joe location at 3:30 p.m. ET on Sept. 30 to talk to his fans on this edge of the coast. He’ll sign and sell books and other Serge-related memorabilia. Check out his hilarious books, including his latest, Tiger Shrimp Tango, at the library.

The library in Wewahitchka will serve as a site for early voting from Aug. 16-23 in the conference room.
