January wraps up with a blizzard of events. Take a look at what's happening at the library during the week of January 26 to 31.
Story Time continues with the topic of Winter Animals on Tuesday, January 20, at Adams and on Wednesday, January 21, at Auburn. Both start at 10:30 a.m. for children ages 2 to 5.
On Saturday, January 31, at 1 p.m. Bob Tarter of NHECM will be in the Jennings Community Room to show us some animals and discuss how they adapt to weather changes. This is fun for the whole family so bring Grandma and Grandpa as well as the children. Today is such a big day we have two events, also at 1 p.m., the teens can see veteran game designer Robert J. Schwalb introduce his new role-playing game, this event does require registration, so sign-up today.
The Winter Reading Program is still in progress and if you haven't signed up, what is holding you back? There is no better time to snuggle down with a good book than during the winter and now you can win prizes for doing it. This is open to anyone in the 6th grade or older. Sign up at the circulation desk and learn all about it.
The Library will be hosting a local quilt show during the month of February. If you have a quilt you'd like to show off, now is the time to bring to the library. Bring your prize quilt in anytime the library is open during January 10 to 30. Let's fill the library with the beauty of quilting arts.
Battle of the Books for grades 3 to 5 is still in progress. You can sign up at the circulation desk and start reading. This continues through March 12, so there's still plenty of time to get started.
Monday, January 26, is also a big day for events at the library with two for the adults. This Monday begins the Chess Challenge. At 9:30 a.m. stop in (or sign up beforehand) and start to play. Chess boards will be set up and ready to go. If you're still playing at 1:30 p.m., you can pause for an hour to take the first of three Memory Writing Workshops. Learn how to develop your personal history into a legacy for those who come after you.
If you're stumped by your iDevice - that is and iPhone, iPod or iPad - here's the class for you. Thursday, January 29, at 10:00 a.m., the mysteries of iThings will be unlocked. There's a limit of 10 and you can sign up at the circulation desk.
Remember Teens we're looking for volunteers for Tech help, Homework help and members for our Teen Advisory Board. Don't forget to stop by the circulation desk to pick up the quarterly newsletter with all this information and more. And please remember, if there is something you'd like to do at the library that we haven't thought of yet, let someone at circulation know. This is your library and we work for you.
