Here are five things to do with your library card this summer.

READ: "Under A Pole Star" by Stef Penney. A fictional story of a whaler’s daughter in 1889 who aspired to become an explorer of the harsh arctic terrain.

WATCH: "Arctic." In this cinematic drama a plane crash leaves a man stranded in a desert of ice where he is dependent on his own resources for survival while he awaits rescue.

LISTEN: "Ice ghosts: the epic hunt for the lost Franklin Expedition" by Paul Watson. In 1845 Sir John Franklin led a voyage of two ships in search of the Northwest Passage, but never returned home to England. Their fate remained a mystery until 2014 when Paul Watson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, discovered the wreckage. This is the harrowing tale of the fate of the original expedition.

EXPLORE: "Chautauqua 2019: Making Waves." Keith Henley, historic interpreter, will portray Matthew Henson, author, polar explorer and first African-American to reach the North Pole. Join us on Saturday, July 13, at 6 p.m. at the Elkton Central Library.

CREATE: Log your own journey as you explore the word around you. With art journaling daily doodling becomes a great way to relax and be mindful while documenting your personal history. The product is a unique keepsake of memories with a very personal touch. Lean more on Creativebug!
