Here's a handful of things to keep in mind for today.

CPL Summer Reading Awards: Today at 10 a.m., participants of Coventry Public Library's "Dig Into Reading" summer reading program are invited to a magic show performed by Malik the Magic Guy! Following the show, certificates and prizes will be awarded to children who have completed the reading requirements. Refreshments will be served. No registration required.
Back to School Supplies: If you have kids in one of our town's elementary schools or at ASFMS, chances are you'll need to stock up on school supplies before summer ends. Here at Coventry Patch, I'm compiling lists of required and suggested supplies from Coventry teachers just in case your copy at home goes missing, but I could use your help! If you've received your child's supply list, feel free to email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org or even send a picture message of the list with your phone to (401) 369.1676 so that I can share it on Patch. Thanks so much in advance!
Blog for Coventry Patch: Are you passionate about local issues, know how to make people laugh, or simply want to speak your mind and share your ideas? If you answered yes to any of these, we'd love to have you blog for us! Click here to learn just how easy it is!
Greene Farmers Market: Skip the grocery store tonight and pick up some fresh veggies, breads and pies at Greene Library's Farmers Market! From 4-7 p.m. each Tuesday through September, the Library (179 Hopkins Hollow Rd.) will host the community market that also offers plants, original craftwork and more. If you would like to become a vendor or need more details, call the call the library at 397-3873 or contact Gail at email@example.com.
Plan Ahead - Pink Heals Reception: The Pink Heals National Tour will arrive right here in Coventry on August 27!
