Do you enjoy reading sweeping, epic historical fiction?  Do you like to get out the popcorn and watch a television series you can really delve into with strong historical content?  Thanks to a generous donor, we now have you covered with the Poldark series!  Made popular by the PBS television series, the twelve Poldark novels were written by Winston Graham, starting in 1945.  Set in the 18th and early 19th centuries, the novels cover the lives and fortunes of the Poldark family in  Great Britain.  Our new acquisition also includes DVDs of seasons 1-4 of the recent PBS series.

 

For those of you following closely, I am happy to report that the Wayne County Council voted to approve our request to spend $15,000 of our LIRF funds for capital improvements, including purchase of a lawnmower, boiler repairs, LED lighting, and computer upgrades.  We are grateful for this suppport and vote of confidence from our county government.

 

Join us for Paws for Reading, every Thursday beginning at 3:30 p.m.  Children in pre-K through 5th grade can sign up for a 15 minute session to read to a retired guide or therapy dog with the expert guidance of trainer Jill Moore.  Paws for Reading will help children practice their reading skills, and pre-readers are also welcome to participate with a parent or caregiver reading to the child.  To sign up for your spot, call the library at 765-478-3335.

 

Mother Goose on the Loose at 10:30 a.m. most Tuesdays is a fun way to begin learning pre-literacy skills for toddlers and preschoolers.  Join us for stories, rhymes, songs, music, movement, flannel boards, friends, and more with Ms. Kim.

 

Monday, May 6th is the next date for the Mad Science Explorers’ Club to meet at 3:30 p.m. to coduct mysterious (TBA) experiments.  This event is suggested for 4th – 8th graders.  You do not have to sign up for the entire series.  Call the library at 765-478-3335 to reserve your spot.
