Celebrate National Library Week!

April 8, 2019

During National Library Week, in addition to our regularly scheduled programs, the library will offer several events to help celebrate:

DIY MINI BOOK on Monday, April 8 at 4:30 p.m. in the Storytime Room. Tweens (ages 9-13) can build a readable mini-book they can add to their personal book collection.


TEEN CRAFTERNOON on Tuesday, April 9 at 4:00 p.m. Teens (ages 13-18) can help decorate the new YA collection space by painting metal book ends with themes from their favorite YA novels.


ESCAPE ROOM: Escape the Library! on Thursday, April 11 at 4:30 p.m. in the Reading Room. Students (ages 9-18) can participate in a special escape room challenge to celebrate National Library Week. They will need to use teamwork and critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to escape the library in just one hour.

EVENING BOOK CLUB on Thursday, April 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the Conference Room. In response to patron requests, the library is bringing back a book club that meets in the evenings. This club will meet regularly on the second Thursday of each month. At the first meeting, the group will discuss Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds.  

This stunning, award-winning novel is written in free-verse and is a very quick read. The fast-paced story follows grief-stricken, fifteen-year-old Will as he takes the 60-second ride down the elevator in his building, determined to honor “the rules” by taking revenge for the murder of his brother. Anyone interested in participating my pick up a copy of the book at the Circulation Desk.
