News From The Library
The Sunfield District Library’s second annual “March Madness for Book Lovers” “tournament” is “now “in the books” so to speak. What started out as sixteen Newbery Award winning books, was slowly reduced to one match-up. “The Tale of Depereaux” by Kate DiCamillo was up against “The Giver” by Lois Lowry. Readers voted on their favorite of the two. It was a very close final round.
Several families were involved and played the game together. They talked about their favorite book, and why they picked it. It was great to see people getting involved and having fun with stories. If someone had not read the book, they were available for check out. Because they were Junior Fiction books, patrons were able to quickly read any missed story. This also allowed both young and old to share the same experience.
Readers were encouraged to vote each week on a round of matched up books. If they participated each week and the title of the final round was picked, their name went into a drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card. The gift card was donated to the library to be given away. After four weeks of elimination, we had our winners. The final story selected by patrons was “The Giver” by Lois Lowry.
The winner of the gift card was Sandy Wells. This was the second year of the book tournament. Patrons, families, and staff had a truly fun time. Be sure to tune in for next year’s “March Madness for Book Lovers” event.

· Did You Know Section: When the Triple A Pawtucket Red Socks and Rochester Red Wings took the field at 8:25 p.m. on April 18, 1981, they had no idea that they'd still be trying to break a 2-2 tie at 4:07 the next morning, after 32 innings. The game was suspended (finally) at that point and concluded on June 23, when a run was scored by Pawtucket in the 33rd inning — the most innings ever played in a professional baseball game. It officially lasted eight hours and 25 minutes. Future Major League Baseball stars Wade Boggs (Pawtucket) and Cal Ripken Jr. (Rochester) played in that game.
