BALDWIN -- Pathfinder Community Library and Baldwin DDA are excited to announce a "Free Book and Coupon" event.

This gathering, for ages 3 to 17, will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, July 25, at the Pathfinder Community Library in Baldwin.

Each child will receive a free book, until books are gone, and a coupon for Jones Homemade Ice Cream.

The books, written by local author Lori Taylor, are about finding animals and plants and enjoying nature.

Items will be distributed outside the library door in a sterile bag - please practice social distancing.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Book of the week: "The Beekeeper of Aleppo" by Christy Lefteri (fiction). Nuri is a beekeeper and Afra, his wife, is an artist.

Mornings, Nuri rises early to hear the call to prayer before driving to his hives in the countryside. On weekends, Afra sells her colorful landscape paintings at the open-air market.

They live a simple life, rich in family and friends, in the hills of the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo--until the unthinkable happens.

When all they love is destroyed by war, Nuri knows they have no choice except to leave their home.

But escaping Syria will be no easy task: Afra has lost her sight, leaving Nuri to navigate her grief as well as a perilous journey through Turkey and Greece toward an uncertain future in Britain.
