The library will be offering a free beginners’ class in Chinese beginning July 9 and continuing each Tuesday and Thursday at 10 a.m., through Sept. 26.

Wie Chen has volunteered to teach the class. She worked as a translator for Volkswagen in Germany before coming to Cleveland as a spouse of a Wacker Chemie employee. This is a great opportunity for the community to take advantage of this kind of class. To register call the Non-Fiction desk or stop by on the second floor. The class will be limited to 15 participants.

Children’s activities continue this week for our “Dig Into Reading” summer reading program. There are still a few openings for the weekly sessions, so hurry in today to register. The Wednesday Movie and Game afternoon on June 19 will feature the film “Treasure Buddies,” rated G. The movie begins at 2 p.m. and board games and Wii on the big screen continue until 6:30 p.m.

Teens Hooked: Knitting and Crocheting group meets in the Teen Zone June 20 at 4:30 p.m. “Beneath the Surface,” the teen summer reading program, meets after hours each Friday and Saturday evening from 7 to 9 p.m. “Mummy Making” is the June 21 theme and “The Mummy” will be shown on June 22.

A behind-the-scenes tour of the library will be held June 20 at 4 p.m. beginning in the lobby. This 45-minute tour will take you to areas in the library not usually open to the public and explain the workings of your public library. No advanced reservation needed.

The Friends of the Library Association will host the Book and Coffee series June 21 with author Janie Dempsey-Watts at 10 a.m. at the Craigmiles-Johnston House History Branch. She will discuss her novel “Moon Over Taylor’s Ridge.” This book is part romance, part adventure and part intrigue. The rich, descriptive writing is crisp and uncluttered. It is an engrossing book with local Cherokee history. FOLA invites all to this event and provides the coffee.
