Come to the library on Thursday, February 6 at 7:00 PM to go on a “blind date with a book!” Author Kiersten Hall will present a humorous program based on her book, I Do, which is a collection of stories from her 15 years as a wedding photographer. Then you will choose a brown-paper wrapped book with a brief description on the front describing the book. Please read it, then return on Thursday, February 27 at 7:00 PM to tell us how you liked it! These free programs will provide adventurous reading fun, laughs and refreshments. Large print books will also be available for selection. All adults are welcome and warmly invited to go on a Blind Date with a Book!
The new Puzzle Cart is ready to roll! These jigsaw puzzles are available for you to enjoy at home and return to the library when finished. There is no need for check out, nor is there a due date. When you are finished with the puzzle, just drop it off at the Circulation Desk. There is a limit of one puzzle per household at a time.
STORYTIMES ARE BACK!
Stitch is a gathering for you to bring your own project – sewing, crocheting, needlepoint, knitting, etc. – to work on, or to come and gain a new skill. Sewing machines will be available, and ALL skill levels are welcome! This group meets the first Monday of the month from 2-5pm. The next meeting is February 3. Drop in or stay the whole time! No registration needed.
Like to color? Come to the library Coloring Club on Mondays from 5-6pm. This club is for all ages – children and adults! All are welcome.
Runner is a registered therapy dog who visits us on Mondays at 6pm for Storytime. His gentle nature makes him a great listener! This is an affirming time for readers of any ability to drop in for Storytime. Bring a book or use one of ours.
Your old broken crayons can be re-purposed to help others! Just drop them off at the library and they’ll be given to Crayons for Cancer, a non-profit organization which benefits children with cancer. They are melted and formed into decorative art. Please don’t throw, just pass on to help. For more information, go to: www.crayonsforcancer.org
