Lansingburgh Books & Activities for July
Looking for a summer read or activity? Laurie Dreyer, manager of Troy’s Lansingburgh branch, recommends three books and shares info on heaps of activities. The books: “The Theft of Sunlight” (fantasy by Intisar Khanani, 2021); “The Maid: A Novel” (Nita Prose, 2022); and “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian” (Sherman Alexie, 2009). Laurie notes that Alexie’s book is frequently banned, for a variety of reasons. Wednesday and Saturday activities include reptile exploration, Big Truck Day, readings of short stories, and more. And what’s this about an ocean of fish in the library? For details, see thetroylibrary.org. To find other local libraries, visit www.nysl.nysed.gov/libdev/libs/publibs/library.htm.
