Celebrate July @ Montgomery City-County Public Library!!

Well, here we are in July!! It’s hard to believe but the year is halfway over!! Of course when we get to July, that means summer vacation is at full blast (and so is the heat) and everyone is planning what they are going to do before school starts next month. Don’t worry, though!! Montgomery City-County Public Library is here to help by suggesting somethings that will make your July even more fun.

Here are some July events you may want to remember:

Independence Day- who says America’s birthday has to be confined to just one day? Check out the American History section at the library to read more about our history.

National Park & Recreation Month- check out our Alabama geography section to see where the nearest parks in the area are.

Smart Irrigation Month- go by our gardening and home ownership section to see what books we have on maintaining you lawn.

National Grilling Month- we have plenty of cookbooks that can help you have the perfect cookout!!

National Make A Difference to Children Month- see what books and information we have on mentoring so you can help a child have a better life!

Cell Phone Courtesy Month- check out our books on etiquette to learn more about the do’s/don’ts of proper cell phone usage.

Women’s Motorcycle Month- If any of you ladies ride or have thought about starting to ride motorcycles, come by our library to see what might be the best one for you and how to safely enjoy this hobby!

So it looks like July is a pretty action packed month! Let our library help make it even more fun and interesting!!
