Even though April showers do bring May flowers, I am not especially fond of rainy days. It is when I think about how they wash away March pollen that I embrace them!
Regardless of how wet it is, April will be a busy month for us here at your library. Preparations for our Summer Reading Programs in June and July are already moving into high gear. The theme for 2016 is wellness, fitness and sports, so all of you adults will be urged to “Exercise Your Mind—Read!”
The teen program is entitled “Get in the Game: Read,” and the slogan for the children’s programs is “On Your Mark, Get Set…Read!” We are planning programs and activities to interest all ages, with the fun beginning on June 6 and continuing through July 15.
Baby blue hearts, pink stars and silver flowers? Why not! Channel your inner child and spend an hour relaxing with beautifully intricate coloring sheets designed for grown-ups. Coloring “Therapy” for Adults will be offered at the library from 2 to 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 7.
Coloring “Therapy” is for adults only, but kids of all ages are more than welcome at our Coloring Fun for Families program. It will take place from 2 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 9. Another Coloring Fun program is scheduled for Saturday, April 23, and Coloring “Therapy” will be offered every Thursday during April.
The patrons who attended our “Climbing Your Family Tree” workshop last month have asked for more. Join us at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 21, for hands-on help with your genealogy questions. Computers will be available, and we will discuss some more advanced resources that you may want to try.
We were able to order a number of new DVDs last week, including many of the latest releases. When they are ready for checkout, Kristy will post a list on the wall beside the hallway door. We will catalog and process them as quickly as possible, so start looking for them soon. Best of all, there are more to come later in the month!
Renowned ornithologist Dr. Gina Sullivan sees the storm that is approaching, but the plane that plunges into the sea beside her boat takes her by surprise. She rescues the sole survivor, but James Callahan knows that the crash was not an accident. Gina takes “Cal” to her base camp on the Aleutian island of Attu and discovers that her entire team of researchers has been murdered. Should Gina trust the stranger or run for her life? “Darkness” is the new thriller from Karen Robards. Come check it out!
