If you’re like me and attempting avoid the intermittent rain and cold, come visit us at the library!
Our East 80 Branch has reopened and in celebration they have a multitude of new programs planned, including a Welcome Back Bash on Sunday, March 17 at 1:00pm. They’re also offering storytimes at numerous times of day and on the weekend, just to do their best to fit their patron’s schedules. And don’t miss out on Bingo, Spring Break activities for all ages, and more!
Our other locations are really getting their skates on and scheduling a ton of new programs too. Tooke Branch has a Teen Lock-in coming up on March 16 and a Kite Day on the 30th. Plus, they are showing their appreciation for all of their amazing visitors by hosting a Patron Appreciation Day on March 25 (all day), so don’t miss out on the goodies they’re giving out. Not too far from Tooke, our Haughton Branch has Spring Break fun planned for the entire week of March 18 for everyone over 9 years old. And families shouldn’t miss out on testing their wits in Trivia on March 22 at 10:00am!
Two of the programs that I’m most excited about at our Plain Dealing Branch are the College Fair on March 19 at 1:00pm, which is a great chance for teens to talk to real people from local colleges; and then their Storm Spotter Training on March 27 at 2:00pm. The latter is for adults only, and offers official training courtesy of the National Weather Service SKYWARN program.
Aulds Branch has caught the creative-bug with their STEM Club on Mondays, Lego Club on Wednesdays, and Kids Crafternoons on alternating Saturdays and Sundays. They have so many activities planned for these programs that I wish I was between the ages of 6-12 so I could attend! Benton Branch is having a blast with their Game Night Café for the whole family. The next one is on March 14 at 6:00pm, and is a great chance for a team-up or may individual bragging rights?
Computer classes ranging from resume writing, to learning how to navigate Creativebug (our new, online hobby resource). They have a Financial Literacy Series starting on March 26 that is sure to be full of tips. And for the younger ones, they have Marvel Movie Monday for the teens, Graphic Novel Groupies for the 6-12-year-olds, and more! Our History Center has an exciting Book Talk coming up too. March 30 at 2:00pm, Frank Boston will be on hand to discuss his book, Tears of Lady Liberty, followed by a Q&A session!
Don’t miss out on all we have planned, call or stop in for more info!
