We’re sure everyone is back into the swing of things with school starting, but don’t forget about your public library this fall! We have a number of great activities, programs, and new initiatives we’re launching and we want you to take advantage of everything your library has to offer.
Please be sure to come see the Wade Hall Postcard Exhibit sponsored by Troy University in our Community Room. The exhibit will be here until Friday, Sept. 14. We also have a table of vintage postcards from the library’s own collection on display as well. Complimentary coffee while you visit!
Holy Celebration! Saturday, Sept. 15 at 11 a.m. is Batman Day, the annual day DC Comics has set aside to recognize the birthday of everyone’s favorite Dark Knight detective. We’ll be hosting our own Batman Day celebration in the children’s Activity Room with bat-snacks, bat-crafts, and bat-games. Just having a genuinely “Batty” time! In the meantime, come by and check out our Batman display of DVDs, graphic novels, and books.
We host several on-going programs for adults during the week including crocheting (3 p.m. on Tuesdays); knitting (2 p.m. on Wednesdays); quilting (1 p.m. on Thursdays); adult crafting club (3 p.m. on Thursdays). Also, on alternating Fridays we host adult trivia (Sept. 7; Sept. 21) and bingo (Sept. 14; Sept. 28) at 3 p.m. These programs welcome all beginners and feature good fellowship and fun.
The library now offers ukuleles for check out! Ukulele is a fun and easy instrument to learn (Tiny Tim anyone?). The kit includes a ukulele, learning guide, tuner, and bag and can be checked out for four weeks. All you need is a library card in good standing. Don’t forget about our guitar collection available for loan as well.
