Summer reading program for adults
“Literary Elements” is the theme of Rodman Public Library’s 2014 Adult Summer Reading Program combining science and literature to pique your interest. The program is open to adults ages 18 and older, and will run concurrently with the teen and children’s program. For each book read, the adult reader will enter a ticket into a weekly prize drawing for a Friends of the Library tote. With each sixth book read, a ticket will be entered into the Grand Prize drawing for two seats at a Maize Valley Market and Winery Vintner's Dinner which includes a five-course meal that will pair a Maize Valley wine with each course and homegrown local foods. The Grand Prize winner will also receive a Literary Elements tote full of goodies including a note block, a bookmark-cum-book light, an insulated lunch bag, assorted chocolate truffles and other nibbles. The dinner is provided courtesy of Maize Valley. The Literary Elements tote with goodies is provided courtesy of the Friends of Rodman Public Library.

Bad Astronomy : Things You Know That Just Aren't So!
Joann Ballbach from The Wilderness Center in Wilmot, Ohio will discuss what we think we know about the sky above us on Saturday, July 12 at 2:00 p.m.
She will talk about planet Earth, the moon, the sun, take a brief look at each of the other planets, then move out to other stars (including the North Star), the constellations, and the zodiac. On the way, we'll take a look at a few common astronomical misconceptions.
For each book read, participants will be entered in a weekly prize drawing for a Friends of the Library tote bag.
For every six books read, participants will have one entry in the grand prize drawing. The grand prize in this year's program includes two seats at a Maize Valley Market and Winery Vintner's Dinner, donated by Maize Valley, PLUS a LITERARY ELEMENTS TOTE.
The Vintner's Dinner includes a five-course meal that will pair a Maize Valley wine with each course and homegrown local foods. Participants of the dinner will have the opportunity to learn about the wine making process, to taste and explore new wines and learn how they complement foods.
The Literary Elements Tote is full of goodies including a note block, a book mark/book light, an insulated lunch bag, assorted chocolate truffles and other nibbles.
The tote bag prizes are provided by the Friends of Rodman Public Library.
