Thank You for the Continued Book Donations The Friends of the Sewickley Public Library’s book sales would not be possible without generous book donations from the community. To make sure donations get to the right place, we ask that all donations be brought to the Circulation Desk in the main lobby of the library during regular operating hours. Although we would love to make donation times more accessible, our after-hours book drop cannot handle the generous amount of items that are donated.

Book Stop Program The library is teaming up with Quaker Valley Schools and the United Way to bring the Book Stop program to the Sewickley Valley. This partnership helps to distribute books to children in local communities. Sewickley Library will be going on two "book runs" on Wednesday, June 27 and Wednesday, August 1. Each book run has four stops where books will be distributed. Check out the Children’s page on the website (www.sewickleylibrary.org/kids) for more details closer to the dates! 2

Adult Battle of the Books 2018 Results We are happy to report that the Adult Battle of the Books sponsored by North Region libraries this past April was a huge success! This year was the first ever Battle of the Books designed specifically for adults. There was such a tremendous response to the program that registration had to end early. There were 28 teams, with a total of 130 people who participated - many of whom dressed up for the event - creating personalized team shirts or donning costumes. Groups had a great time reading a variety of selected titles, winning fun prizes, and getting to take home a complimentary book at the end of the evening. Most of all, participants reported that they appreciated having a perfect occasion to enjoy with friends. Sponsoring libraries for the event included: Avalon Public Library, CooperSiegel Community Library, Hampton Community Library, Millvale Community Library, Northland Public Library, Northern Tier Library, Sewickley Public Library, and Shaler North Hills Library.

New, Resume Cafes! The library is excited to offer our new Resume Cafes! Like our current Tech Cafes, you can book a Librarian who specializes in career services for a one-on-one session.

You can schedule a Resume or Tech Cafe online at: www.sewickleylibrary.org/tech-cafes or ask a Reference Librarian.

Excerpts from “Le Corsaire” Featured in June West Pointe Ballet presents excerpts from “Le Corsaire” on Saturday, June 2. There are two showings: at 1:00 PM and 2:30 PM. Le Corsaire (The Pirate) follows the escapades of a dashing pirate, Conrad, who journeys across the high seas to save his beautiful Greek girl, Medora. You’ll get to meet Medora and her best friend, Gulnare, as well as the famous 3 Odalisques. They will also be presenting a small part of the famous dream scene from “Le Jardin Animee” and other dances. Le Corsaire will most definitely be enjoyed and appreciated by young and old alike. The ballet is full of majestic and virtuoso dancing, making Le Corsaire one of the easiest and most entertaining classical ballets for the audience to watch and most challenging for the dancers to execute.
