FAMILY BOOK CLUB  We’ll be discussing the book Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer and designing our own fancy fowls this Thursday the 28th at 5 PM.  New families are always welcome.

 

BOOK BLOOMS  Help us beautify the library and welcome Spring by adding to our latest display.  Write down the name of a book you’ve enjoyed recently and we’ll add a flower to the bare branches to represent it.  Come see what your neighbors are reading and share the literary gems you’ve found.

 

MAGNIFIER  The library now has a state-funded Enhanced Vision HD magnifier designed to help patrons with visual impairments.  It is set up near the public access computers.  Stop in to check it out or ask at the desk for a demonstration.

APRIL PROGRAMS  There are a few changes in our normal schedule next month.  Social Hour will be on the third Wednesday, the 17th.  Movie Night will be on Tuesday the 16th instead of Thursday, so join us for the latest animated Spider-Man movie.  There will also be no Songs and Stories on Saturdays the 20th and 27th.  The 20th will feature our annual Egg Hunt, with fun games and treats.  The Adult Craft, a multimedia piece of blossom art, will be on Thursday the 11th as usual, and Family Book Club will be on the 25th.  We’ll be reading Charlotte’s Web and learning to crochet.  Please also note that the library will be closing at noon on Friday the 19th.
