Almanac - August

August is for Augustus Caesar's month

Latin - Augustus mensis "month of Augustus"
Origionally called Sextilis mensis - "sixth month."

Sextilis had 30 days until Julius Caesar when it became 31 days long.

Augustus Caesar clarified and completed the calendar reform of Julius Caesar. In the process, he renamed this month after himself.

August’s Birthstone is the Sardonyx stone or Peridot, which is a spring green gemstone.

August’s Flower is the Gladiolus, which symbolizes "Splendid Beauty."

August’s Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon

North American fishing tribes called August's full moon the sturgeon moon since the species was abundant during this month. It's also been called the grain moon, and the red moon for the reddish hue it often takes on in the summer haze.

August’s Full Moon will be on the 29th.

Kid’s Definition:

Mosquito-- noun.

An insect that makes you like flies better.

Perseids Meteor Shower

 

The 2015 Perseid meteor shower will peak around August 11. A new moon on August 14, 2015 will create perfect conditions for watching the meteor shower.

The Perseid meteor shower, one of the brighter meteor showers of the year, occur every year between July 17 and August 24. The shower tends to peak around August 9-13.

The best time to view the Perseids, or most other meteor showers is when the sky is the darkest. Most astronomers suggest that depending on the Moon’s phase, the best time to view meteor showers is right before dawn.  According to www.timeanddate.com

Back to School Tip:

Parents – your children need a permanent work space in their bedroom or another part of the home that offers privacy.  They will feel more relaxed if they have a “space of their own” to work.

Don’t have a Library card?  Sign up today!

Did You Know?.....

Only 55% of all Americans know that the sun is a star.

If you get into Poison Ivy, wash the area with plenty of soap and water.  Then wipe the area with alcohol.  Paint thinner also works, but it’s smelly.  Change all your clothes and put them right into a washer so the oil from the Poison Ivy doesn’t get on anyone else.  The pharmacy sells creams to help the itching if you get a rash.  Remember!  “Leaves of three, let them be!”

The Library has a small collection of Wii games,

Xbox 360 / Kinect games, and PlayStation PS3 games. 

   If you own one of these systems, come in and check out the games. 

   Also look on the on-line catalog to see what games the other Libraries have.

Do you like to watch the birds in your yard?

 

Make peanut butter cookie cutter treats for the birds.
Take old bread slices and cut out shapes with cookie cutters. Let them dry and harden enough to spread with peanut butter. Cover the peanut buttered shapes with black sunflower seeds and hang outdoors on trees or anywhere birds might come! Use a bird book to identify the birds.

Re-inventing the Library

Yes, we still have books here at the Library.  You can come and borrow a book and take it home and sit in your favorite chair and read and feel the paper pages turning under your fingertips.

But that’s not all we offer to patrons who come here.

We offer Internet access on our 12 patron computers or you can use or Wi-Fi to log on with your own laptop or tablet.  With so many companies placing the process of applying for a job on the Internet, your local Library becomes a portal to employment.

We offer an online link to ebooks and audio books. 

We offer programs for Teens and weekly programs for kids where they can come and be with friends their own age.

Gone are the days of rows of books and librarians “shushing” everyone.  We are growing and changing to meet new demands and new challenges.

Drop in and check out what your Library has to offer.
