What’s Happening at the Library
Mason, our retired leader dog friend, loves books! But he doesn't read on his own yet. He needs helpful children to volunteer to read to him on Thursdays, starting at 3:15 pm, by appointment. Call the library at 765-478-3335 to sign up. A side effect of reading to Mason is that children may become more skilled and confident readers themselves! Pre-readers are also welcome to participate with a parent reading a book. Thanks to Mason’s human, Jill Moore, for bringing this event to our library.
Thanks to everyone who came out for the session on dream journaling last week! We had a good discussion. We are also offering an Introduction to Dream Journaling class for teens where you will learn tips and tricks to enhance dream recall which can improve your creativity and enhance your personal development. This class is coming up on Wednesday, September 25th at 4:00 p.m.
Mother Goose on the Loose has expanded to two days a week! This popular event for young children will be offered on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. with a repeat session on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. to better accommodate the busy schedules of our families in the community. Mother Goose on the Loose is a story time geared towards toddlers and preschoolers that helps encourage learning through rhyme, repetition, music, movement, and stories. Our aim is to build pre-literacy skills and have fun! All ages are welcome. No sign-up is required.
Join one of our book club discussions this month. Evening book club meets Tuesday, September 17th at 6:30 p.m. to discuss The Wartime Sisters by Lynda Loigman; and Morning Book Club meets Monday, September 23rd at 10:00 a.m. to discuss Wish You Well by David Baldacci. Just stop by the library to pick up a copy of either of the books.
Do you know anyone who needs help updating a resume, applying for a job, or who needs to begin planning a career change with an online search? We have a new plan for one-on-one computer help called “Jump-start your Job Search with Jodi” on Wednesdays and Fridays. Although this program focuses on career building, Jodi is also available to help with general computer questions. To book an appointment, call the library at 765-478-3335.
