National Library Week: April 10-16, 2016|
This year the theme is “Libraries Transform” and Gene Luen Yang will serve as Honorary Chair. He is an award-winning graphic novelist. This is the perfect time to celebrate libraries everywhere!
April Book Lovers Raffle
So, in honor of National Library Week, let’s celebrate with a raffle. Check out a book in April and you will be automatically entered. Prize: A Schiavo tote bag filled with goodies. Drawing will be held on May 6, 2016.
Art at the Library Update
Cecelia Quigley, Director of the Children’s Country Place School, brought in the students art work. We set the canvases out all over the library. When the parents came in with their children, they had to hunt for their own canvas. That way they got to see all of the library. It was a fun activity – we had 7 families visit and then Cecelia brought the whole class in on March 31st. The art work (based on Van Gogh’s Starry Night) will be here for a few more weeks. Stop in if you can; it’s definitely worth a peek!
Save the date
