It’s National Library Week, so be sure to stop in and see us! We are running a special giveaway from Monday through Friday: if you come in and check out an item, any item, you will automatically be registered to win a Sony eReader! This device can be used to check out ebooks from the Sunflower eLibrary, and you can also use it to purchase ebooks from the Sony Reader store. Adult patrons only, and the number of items you check out will NOT affect your chance of winning.
Wednesday, April 11: Feed & Film – The Lost Fleet of Columbus
Feel free to bring a sack lunch; refreshments are provided. In 1494, Columbus made a second journey to the Americas–this time with more ships, more men, and a grander mission. But in just a few short years, this settlement would perish. What happened at this ill-fated settlement remains a mystery 500 years later.
