Letters from the library


Dear Friends,

How about some of the fantastic weather we have had recently. Winter seems to be on its last leg, and spring is right around the corner. I can’t wait. How about you?

The Read Across America program begins this week. It is sponsored by the National Education Association and is designed to foster a love of reading in children. We are having a clue hunt that will require your young ones to use all their library skills to honor this program.

We are hoping to see many of our slightly older (ages 7–10) tween readers at our discussion of “I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World”. This book is the true and inspiring story of Malala Yousafzai in her own words. It is about the power of “one”, and the difference each of us can make. You can find us at the library on March 9 at 4 p.m. for this.

There is also a great book discussion on March 29 at 6 p.m. for the adults. The novel is “Goodnight Nobody” by Jennifer Weiner. The story follows Kara Klein as she tries to solve a murder mystery while juggling three children and her own problems. Books are available at the library and light refreshments will be provided. You will also learn about the opportunity to meet the author at a later date.

In keeping with our usual monthly offerings, on March 16 there will be an all-day Make and Take opportunity. With the approach of St. Patrick’s Day, do you think it might be something green? The children’s reading raffle prize is an Easter themed basket, and for the adult raffle there is an indulgence basket full of books and ice cream fixings.

Have you seen the Read-O-Saurus-Rex backpacks at the library? Your little ones will love having a place to keep their books safe and secure, and they are available in a variety of colors. Your donation for the backpack goes directly to supporting your local library.

Until next time, keep turning those pages and don’t worry about staying warm. Plant a flower!
