Library Column for January 6, 2023

@ Your Library

Happy New Year! The library is ready to help you keep your New Year’s resolutions. We can help you further your education, learn a hobby, read more and provide lots of recipes for healthy cooking, books and videos on exercising and so much more. We’d love for one of your resolutions to be visiting the library at least weekly.

You can make your visit to the library virtual as well. Visit our website at for access to Consumer Reports online, legal forms, Mango language learning modules and LinkedIn Learning for professional development courses. You can also download a variety of apps for use on phones and tablets to get access to thousands of digital audiobooks, ebooks, comics, and more. Stop in if you’d like more information or need assistance in getting started.

Storytime resumed yesterday and will continue on Thursday mornings at 10:30 am. Storytime is for any child under the age of 6 or so. Children and their caregivers are encouraged to join us for about 30 minutes of stories, rhymes, music and more followed by about 30 minutes of play time with our early learning toys.

Libratory Bags will be available each Tuesday afternoon beginning Tuesday, January 10th. Elementary students and their families will enjoy doing a weekly STEAM activity and learning through doing simple science, engineering, math and technology. Sign up to make sure you can get a weekly bag, then stop by each week and discover cool stuff!

The library had a request for a Trivia night so join us every other Wednesday, beginning January 11th from 6:30 – 7:30pm. At least to start we’ll use the Buzz Quiz TV and Buzz Quiz World games with remote buzzers for the PS3. We’ll meet in the meeting room and trivia night is open to all, high school age and up. Let us know if you have questions, or just stop by and check us out.

The open book discussion time is back. Join us alternating Thursdays from 12 – 1 in the library meeting room. Bring the book you’ve been reading and be ready to tell us if you’d recommend it or not. At least for now, we’re not planning to all read the same book, just share what we’ve read and what we’ve enjoyed or not. Bring a lunch and come share books with fellow readers.

Finally, crafting time is also returning. Bring your knitting, crocheting, quilting, drawing, whatever crafting or art you’d like to do. We’ll meet alternate Wednesday mornings from 10 – noon beginning Wednesday, January 18th and alternate Monday evenings from 6 – 8pm beginning Monday, January 30th.

The library will be closed on Monday, January 16, 2023, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. day, which is why we won’t start our evening crafting time until the end of the month.

The library is open Monday – Wednesday 10 am – 8 pm, Thursday – Friday 10 am – 6 pm and Saturday 10 am – 3 pm. Junior room is open all hours the main library is open.
