Each month, the Library team puts their heads together to buy the most interesting, most informative books that are sure to please the most people- the young and the not-so-young!
Along with the New York Times Bestsellers, we also check out “Best Picks” from other sources like Amazon and People magazine. We look for works of fiction and non-fiction that are well-written and that are informative and, most of all, interesting. We always strive to choose works to represent both sides of an issue. You can count on us to have a wide variety of topics and authors to choose from. That’s a promise!
Almost as important to us (well, maybe, just as important!) is our commitment to bring you programs that will enlighten, inform and amuse. January brings two new, on-going programs to the Library. Every first Tuesday from 10:30 to 11:30, 3-5 year olds may enjoy free play with blocks in our spacious auditorium. Our “Blocks Party” is a program that is sponsored by the State Library to encourage creativity in young children. As for something for the whole family, every last Saturday morning of the month from 10:30 to Noon, the Library invites your whole family to get together for a family-oriented movie. This month on January 27th, at 10:30am, we will feature “Cinderella” starring Lilly James as Cinderella with an all-star cast of Hollywood actors, rated PG.
As you may know, the Library has partnered with Hartzell’s Pharmacy to host a continuing series of “Health Talks.”
On Wednesday, January 24th at 6:00pm Dr. Vincent Hartzell will present “Understanding Your Medications.” Learn how to manage your medications and what questions to ask your pharmacist and physician. There you have it! Something for the very young, something for the whole family and something for every adult who would like to better manage their health needs. See you at the Library!
