Wow! It’s hard to believe August is here! We’re now heading toward the end of the year. A lot of things pop to mind when we think about this month, but the main one is getting in that last trip to the mountains or the beach because school is fixing to start back. I know it’s hard for everyone to believe, but it’s true! So in addition to getting those last vacations in, it’s also time for parents to begin buying school supplies and back-to-school clothes. There are some other things going on this month, though, that might interest you and Montgomery City-County Public Library is just the place to come to help you learn more about them. Among the events in August are:
Children’s Eye and Safety Month- visit our medical books section to see what information we have on protecting your child’s vision.
Respect for Parents Day (8-1)- kids can come and look for books to see what they can do to show mom and dad how much they appreciate them. Maybe they can check out a cookbook to make their favorite recipe!
MTV Premiere: Anniversary (8-1)- Visit our media department to see what we have in the way of music and music videos! You can also check out Hoopla.
World Wide Web: Anniversary (8-1)- In 1990 what would later become the World Wide Web was suggested in a lab in Switzerland and think of the changes it’s made to the world! Visit your local library and check out some of your favorite web sites to honor this day.
Bystander Awareness Month- visit the library and find out how you can become more active in helping your local law enforcement battle crime.
World Lung Cancer Day (8-1)- check out one of our medical databases to find out how to keep your lungs healthy!
What Will Be Your Legacy Month- come in and see what books we have on how you can do things that will benefit your community for years to come.
As you can see, there are a lot of fun and interesting things going on in August. Let Montgomery City-County Public Library help you learn more about them!
