Food Preservation: The Basics of Freezing and Canning Your Local Harvest Program will include discussions on food safety, considerations of food preservation, and an overview of the different types of food preservation. The program will be led and facilitated by Melissa Welker, M.Ed., Family and Consumer Sciences Educator and Fulton County OSU Extension Agent.

Finally, solve the mystery on Tuesday, July 28 at 6:30 p.m. The Mystery Book Discussion Group will be discussing “Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer,” by John Grisham. This month, the group will be reading its first Young Adult Novel., to help bring out the kid in each and every one of us. The book discussion is free and is open to everyone.

According to the book jacket, “In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he’s only thirteen years old, Theo Boone thinks he’s one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk – and a lot about the law.

“He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom. But Theo finds himself in court much sooner than expected. Because he knows so much – maybe too much – he is suddenly dragged into the middle of a sensational murder trial.

“A cold-blooded killer is about to go free, and only Theo knows the truth. The stakes are high, but Theo won’t stop until justice is served.”

The library has ordered copies of the book, so each group member may have one. Please stop by the library, and pick up your copy today.
