What is that quote? A picture is worth a thousand words? I can’t come up with 9,000 words to describe the fun everyone had at our pool party August 4th. Here are a few pictures of summer readers from Centralia, Corning and Seneca libraries having a wonderful time at the Seneca Aquatic Center. Keep reading everyone!
Seneca Free Library presents

Not up for a book club? The BINGO card is back this summer! We even give you a free space if you need it. Stop in and ask for your card soon!
Beginning June 6 we will have quizzes to challenge your knowledge of the world. Take one quiz each week through June, turn in your answers, answer all the questions correctly and your name will go in with others for a drawing. The prize is a “taste of the world” treat.
B-I-N-G-O is a program for students in 6th-12th grades.
BINGO cards are filled with fun things to read. As you read and cross off books, you have BINGO! Turn your completed cards in for a prize.
Ask the librarians for details.
There is no ‘event’ with this program. The time shown on the calendar is simply the time we open. This is a reminder to continue reading through the BINGO card.
Read Along with Me will be held every Monday in June from 10:30 to 11:30 AM.
This is a new program for our library, for children in 4th and 5th grades. Bring a snack and drink and enjoy listening to a world story or bring your own book to read.
There are activities for all ages. We ask that in fairness to all participants that you bring your child to the age appropriate event.

Libraries across Kansas were asked to choose a day during the week of November 14-20 as their SnapShot day. Seneca Free Library chose Friday November 19. We sent data into the State Library of Kansas, these are the numbers from libraries across the state.
<Snapshot: a Day in the Life of Kansas Libraries. Libraries across Kansas were asked to participate in Snapshot Day the week of November 15 – 20. Public, academic, school and special libraries were asked to pick one day during the week to compile statistics, customer comments, photographs and other data chronicling a typical library day. What is more typical than checking out to a patron at a library?
Yes, the mail man comes most everyday we are > open, there are days he takes a holiday while we are at the library wondering where he is. He delivers 2 daily newspaper, the Topeka Capital Journal and USA Today. He also delivers the weekly newspapers from Seneca, Marysville and Sabetha. The library also subscribes to over 30 magazines.
<This is our Kansas Express Courier delivery man. This is the man who delivers the books our patrons request from other libraries. In July of 2009 the libraries of Kansas began using a state wide courier service instead of sending all our inter-library loans through the mail.
Books and movies are the most popular items to > get checked out. DVDs are popular when people are traveling if they have portable players in their vehicles. Also very popular with people who travel a lot are the audio books, books on CD. We have a nice selection of adult and childrens books on CD and even still a few on cassette tapes, remember those?
<We managed to catch a child reading quietly in the gazebo in the children’s area. Her mother was looking for Accelerated Reading books for her older brother to read. She said she likes to read to her baby sister too.
>The library held a special reading of The Wind in the Willows for children in grades 1-3. On Friday they came to the library to watch the movie and enjoy popcorn in our community room!
<The computers are always very busy after school. Children under 12 years of age need to have a parent come into the library to sign a form giving them permission to be on our computers with internet access.
