KRL’s Month of the Book: One month and lots of great reads

Be sure not to mistake Kitsap Regional Library’s latest reading program for a longstanding commercial literary venture. “Month of the Book, Month of the Book!” Martha Bayley said, laughing. While the Book-of-the-Month Club demands its monthly payment for subscribers’ regular fiction or non-fiction fix, October’s Month of the Book promotion at KRL offers edification without a cover charge. Bayley, KRL’s collection manager, said plans had long been in the works for Month of the Book, a series of programs pinned on the theme of classic fiction – what makes a book great.

Creepy, crawly things can fly, too

Don’t panic this time of year when you see flying ants and termites. Ants by nature — once their colonies are established, usually after three years or so — have a flying stage where the reproducing males and females grow wings, leave the colony and set out to establish new ones. It sometimes seems like the flying ants number in the hundreds, but don’t worry, very few of them actually survive. And most of the time they make their new home in the woods and meadows, and not in or around our homes.
