Inter-library Delivery, Summer Reading, and MORE!

Good News ~ Inter-library loans and book deliveries are back at last!  You can now place holds for books at different libraries, and have them delivered to Candor. Our delivery day will be Tuesdays, with first delivery on July 28th.

Even though the building isn't open (yet) - the lobby is, and we've got tons of SUMMER STUFF happening. Please check our Summer 2020 page for more details, and of course we'll be posting events on our FB page.


Summer Reading goes through August 22. You’ll find a sign-up sheet in the lobby. Grab a reading log from the folder, pick up a free book, and take one of the weekly prizes. There will be a prize-drawing at the end of summer.

If you want to join the Summer Book Club, there are still books available. The club is for incoming or exiting 4th- through 6th-graders (ages 9-12), and the book is The Unforgettable Guinevere St. Clair, by Amy Makechnie. There will be two Zoom meetings: July 29 and Aug 29. Please contact the library to join the book club and arrange a book pick-up.

Drop by each week to pick up a STEAM Grab-and-Go project in the lobby. The projects are provided by 4H and activities include constructing an FPG-9 Glider and building a marshmallow bridge.



Page Turner Adventures begin Monday, July 13 and you may join any time. Think: circus + story + larger-than-life props in a mad alchemy of storytelling and imagination. The audience becomes the HERO in the story, interacting directly with the actors on stage. There are adventures five days a week for 6 weeks. Each adventure lasts 30 – 45 minutes. To participate, you will need to join the facebook group Page Turner Adventures at Candor Free Library’s facebook page. More info on our Summer 2020 page.


Wed. July 15 ~ Didgeridoo Down Under, at 6:30 pm. Didgeridoo Down Under is a high-energy, Australia-themed show that combines music, culture, comedy, character building, storytelling and audience participation.You can find the link on Candor Library’s facebook page, or you can email the library for a link.

Tuesday, July 28 ~ The Dirtmeister at 7pm. This is a fun blend of science, mirth and merriment. Candor is providing this program in cooperation with three other libraries, so you may participate in any of them. Check back for links; here are the dates and times:
