Announcing the arrival of the fabulous month of May! YES! A month best known for the arrival of bountiful flowers, the start of the gardening season and so much more! Known in Britain as the National Smile Month, May is the door to summer, and with it comes beer-gardens, BBQs, and kick-a-bouts at the park – a good reason for anybody to smile.

May is also the month of Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and all sorts of other fun designated days of celebrations and events. Let's take a look:

  • May 4th – Star Wars Day

Go without saying, this one should, but say it for you I will. May the fourth be with you.

Today is the day that all wings report in, that Order 66 is executed, the day that there is an awakening in The Force. Kick back and enjoy a great excuse (as if you need one) to watch something – anything – Star Wars. Just keep your lightsaber handy, you never know when you’ll need it.

  • May 8th – No Socks Day.

Today is day all about freedom of movement… for your toes. That’s right people, ditch the socks, go barefoot, and feel the freedom of the wind upon your feet.

  • May 9th – Lost Sock Memorial Day.

What a perfect day to follow No Socks Day. Today we spare a thought for the fallen brothers of our sock drawers, and those lonely single socks sitting there without their companions. Missing socks, you are gone but not forgotten.

  • May 15th – Chocolate Chip Day.

You get them in pretty much anything sweet and baked – muffins, cookies, brownies – chocolate chips have lived in the desert world ever since making their appearance first in cookies in 1937. So grab a cookie, muffin or brownie and enjoy the divine power of the chocolate chip!

May is already here, and soon it will be summer! I am busy working on the Troy Community Library’s Summer Reading Program. I have some fun stuff planned, so stay tuned. The Summer Reading Program begins in June and runs through July. The May STEAM Take-away Activity is 3-D insect puzzles; you will fall to pieces for these puzzles. The activity will be available starting on May 18th. These activities are geared towards elementary-age kiddos. Supplies are limited, to-go activities are given out on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you have questions about anything happening at the library this month, please call Michelle Sturdy at 208-835-4311or email
