Welcome to 2010 @ Your Library. We have many exciting changes and programs planned for this year. We’re currently working to upgrade our wireless Internet connection speed and replace network equipment that has finally kicked the bucket after being damaged by water last July. Thanks to a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation we will soon begin upgrading our public access computers as well. All this will enable us to better serve you, and to offer improved access to the wide collection of online resources now available at your library. Beginning January 27th and continuing every Wednesday from 2:00 – 2:30 thru the end of February, we will be offering a 30 minute “tour” of several of these resources. Upcoming tours include the Heritage Quest Online Genealogy research site, Consumer Health Complete, The Auto Repair Reference Center and Novelist Readers’ Advisory service for fiction lovers. Keep in mind that these websites can be accessed free of charge either at the library or from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a library card!
February also brings our 2010 Spring Storytime for young children. Beginning Feb 10th , with “Sweetheart Day!”we’ll meet with the kids every Wednesday morning from 10- 10:30 for a fun filled program of storytelling, make believe, sing-alongs, crafts and other educational activities designed to stimulate your child’s creativity and learning. Each week features a different theme and books related to that theme, which can be checked out. All families, caregivers and daycare are welcome to join us. For more information, contact our children’s program coordinator Gina or any staff member at the library or stop by to pick up a complete schedule.
Book Discussion Group meets the third Tuesday of every month. Next meeting, February 16th, 7:00 PM in the downstairs meeting room. The book for February is The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. Copies of the book are available for checkout at the library. Everyone is welcome to join in the discussion or to just listen!.
The Boscobel High School student mural project at the library is now in living color and adding details every week. Mr. Johnson and all students grades 7-12 are invited to join in on Saturday mornings from 9:00 AM onward. Paint, brushes, instructions and treats are provided. Everyone is welcome to stop by and check on the mural's progress as it rolls down the wall in the rear entryway. To join in the fun or learn more about the project, check with Mr Johnson at BHS or ask at the library front desk.
