Hello, everybody! Wishing you all a very safe, healthy, happy (and patriotic) holiday weekend coming up. Fly your flags proudly, salute our great nation, go ahead and have that second piece of watermelon. Holiday calories don’t count, you know!

Happy hometown birthday wishes go put to Douglas Keener of the ‘ville, opening presents on July 7.

From our “Watch Where You’re Going” department: a small black bear (!) made an all-too-brief appearance on Dunns Chapel Road near Pouncey Tract Road this past Friday morning. Yikes! Hopefully this youngster is just passing through on his way to the traveling circus and his mama or papa isn’t tagging along!

All branches of the Pamunkey Regional Library, including our own beloved Cochrane Rockville branch, will be closed in observance of Independence Day both Friday, July 3 and Saturday, July 4. Normal hours resume Monday, July 6.

Catch the amazing antics of juggler Jesse Joyner in a special library show on Wednesday, July 8, at 11 a.m. Watch him juggle a myriad of objects, all from the comfort of his unicycle. Wow!

Due to the library’s closing, First Friday Films moves to Friday, July 10, at 4:30 p.m. Bring the whole family and catch a full-length feature on the branch’s big screen. Nosh on free popcorn, snacks and soft drinks courtesy of the Friends of the Rockville Library. Call the branch at (804) 749-3146 for the film’s title.

Don’t miss the Chesterfield Children’s Theatre and their live production of “Charlotte’s Web” at the library Saturday, July 11, at 11 a.m. It’s a great adaptation of the perennial classic story that’ll leave you smiling.
