There are 10 new Adult Book Discussion kits available for check out. You don't know what a Book Discussion Kit is?
Pioneer Library makes holding a book discussion easy. All you have to do is gather the friends and open the book. We do the rest for you. PLS maintains Book Discussion kits that have everything you need to have a successful group reading experience. Each kit contains 10 - 14 copies of the listed book, bookmarks, a manual containing discussion questions, reviews and articles and information about the book and information about the author all in a bag to carry them home.

To browse the book discussion kits go to For Book Lovers under Services (on the right side of the web page) and click on Adult or Teen Book Discussion Kits.

Having a hard time finding a book this month? Take a look at some of the following titles to get a few ideas.
Entwined with You by Sylvia Day
The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires. "From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn't resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside, so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I'd been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become. Entwined by our secrets, we tried to defy the odds. We made our own rules and surrendered completely to the exquisite power of possession,"
Joyland by Stephen King
Set in a small town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.Add a comment

PLS has taken on two new databases that should definitely be explored!
The Consumer Reports database assists consumers in making better purchasing decisions on whatever they may be shopping for. Consumers can search and browse through information about cars, appliances, electronics, home & gardening supplies, products for babies & kids, shopping, health, and money. The database also provides ratings for the items that people are interested in. If you are thinking about making a purchase anytime soon, browse this database to get the most bang for your buck!
The Fold3 database offers a vast collection of original historical documents and personal histories from the past. These valuable documents can help people expand their knowledge of their own ancestry. With a travelling genealogy program going around PLS for Summer Reading 2013, this database could help you get started on exploring an interesting personal history.Add a comment

Students from Michelle McDaniel's class at Polo Road Elementary School in Columbia, South Carolina, heard about the multiple tornadoes that came through our state in May and sympathized with the Oklahomans affected.
To show their support, they wrote cards expressing their well wishes, safety tips, and positivity about the future. The photo to the left is just an example of one of the many thoughtful cards written by the Polo Road Elementary School children.
