May 2013

National Library Week WINNERS

The library celebrated National Library Week during April 15 to April 20.  Winners of the two Nook SimpleTouch with Glowlights were announced on Monday, April 22. Nearly 200 patrons entered to win at the library by answering the question, “Why I Love My Library.” The second Nook was given away to one of 55 online entries explaining why “My Library Rocks.” The winners were Jeff Romack for the in-house drawing and Nathan Mestemaker for the online drawing. In addition, the library gave away approximately 100 eFriendly library book bags to patron who checked out more than 5 items. A special thanks to everyone for their kind words. Pictured are the winners in front of the display of entries. 

The library held its first ever Rockin' Lock-in on Friday, April 26th.  More than 50 kids ages 9 to 13 had a blast after hours @ the library.  Our own FoRizzle Lizzle & GMoney were the DJs for a Rockin' Dance party in the library commons. Three Wii Gaming stations as well as Pizza and other snacks were enjoyed in the community room.  A croquet course and a hanging donuts game were also available for everyone to play.  We are definitely going to do this again, so follow us on Facebook to watch for announcements, because pre-registration will be required.

This summer, we’ll be digging into great books and great fun as we learn all about construction machines, rocks, gems, mummies and artifacts, caves, dinosaurs, gardening and lots of other things that go under the earth! We’ll have our weekly Story and Craft sessions where we’ll cover a new and exciting subject each week as well as cool special events throughout the entire summer!

When school lets out, don’t get bored- EXPLORE!

Beat the rush! Early registration begins May 1st

We’ll start counting your books on May 31st!

The official kick-off with our pal, the incredibly fun Mr. Puppet, will be held

Kids can sign up one week in advance for the weekly programs and some of the special events will be open to families too. Remember, the more you read, and the more events you attend, the more chances you’ll have to win some cool prizes!
