Saguache_Library_Summer reading_#

The Saguache Public Library’s Summer Reading Program is off to a roaring start as Penny-the-Librarian (pictured, back) gets student engaged in summer educational programs. This year’s theme is “Build a Better World!” and that’s exactly what was happening in Saguache Today.

The summer season is underway and that means a little extra leisure time for most residents in Saguache Today. If getting some great summer reading in is on your list, then hit up the book section at the Blue Earth Mercantile Thrift. The non-profit organization is having a book sale at 25 cents for paperback books and 50 cents for hard covers. And the selection is spilling off the shelves, for now. You can find them at 404 4th Street in Downtown Saguache.

“The Pirates” Take Downtown Saguache Captive

The “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is playing this weekend (June 16-18)  in downtown Saguache, at Cozy Castle Cinema. This film, which is rated PG-13, is the next in the series, starring Captain Jack Sparrow, aka Johnny Depp.

About the movie, thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Capt. Jack Sparrow feels the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost sailors led by his old nemesis, the evil Capt. Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it, he must forge an uneasy alliance with a brilliant and beautiful astronomer and a headstrong young man in the British navy.
