Books & Bites
Monday, October 15
6-7 PM
Move over Pizza & Pages, a new teen book discussion group is in town! Books & Bites meets every third Monday (with some exceptions) at various eateries in and around the community. This month's read is Esperanza Rising, a story about a young girl and her mother who are forced to leave their life of wealth and privelege in Mexico to go work in the labor camps of Southern California after a sudden tragedy. Here, they must learn how to adapt to the harsh lifestyle that now faces them. Treat yourself after reading the book to a dinner or dessert at Panera Bread and discuss it with others. The group will be meeting at Panera Bread located at 4221 Recreation Drive in Canandaigua, NY on Monday, October 15 at 6 PM. Contact Jenny Goodemote at 394-1381 or for more information.

Nintendo DS Lite Winner!
Congratulations to Kasey Semmler, the winner of the Nintendo DS Lite! She won the grand prize by solving the Summer Mystery Murder at Wood Library. Kasey accused Jim Shortz of poisoning Mr. E Librarian's pencil (the one he liked to chew) because he mentioned raising the overdue fines to $1 a day for books. And she was right! Thanks to everyone who participated! I hope to see you again next summer!
