As part of our ongoing celebration of Hot Reads for Cold Nights, we will be hosting a craft night Tuesday, February 16th at 7:00. If you have a project you’re working on and want to show it off, or just enjoy some company, bring it along. If you don’t have a project, we will have a few fun things to work on, like the scarf to the right. Want to bring the kids? We can find something fun for them to do, too.
Now that the blizzard is behind us, let’s plan a new night for board games.
Join us for Trivial Pursuit, Jenga, Scrabble and Yahtzee. Don’t like those games? Bring your own! We will have hot beverages and sweet treats. This is part of our adult reading program, but feel free to bring the whole family!
The next fun event we have planned for our Hot Reads for Cold Nights program is a board game night, coming up this Tuesday, February 2nd at 7:00 pm. We will have Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble, Jenga and many more fun games, plus some fun treats to nibble on. Bring the entire family! As always, everything is totally free!
Have you heard about the hottest new thing? It’s adult coloring books! That’s right, grown-ups are coloring beautiful, complex designs. Join us to relieve some stress, meet your neighbors and take some time for yourself.
We will provide the pages, pencils and markers, plus hot beverages and treats. You bring your creativity and sense of fun.
For the next three months, when you recycle these things at Fred’s Market Place in Lonsdale, the proceeds will go to the Friends of the Lonsdale Library to fund children’s programming. So, if you’ve been thinking about cleaning out the garage, now’s a good time!
January 12, 2016-February 20, 2016
It’s time again for our annual reading program for adults! Hot Reads for Cold Nights is open to anyone 18 or older in the Lonsdale area with a library card. Don’t have a card? We would be glad to sign you up for one.
We will be giving away five weekly prizes of a tote bag and a book plus one grand prize of a tote bag filled with a magnet, mug, lunch bag, book and book lover’s calendar. You receive one entry for the prize drawings just for signing up. You can earn more entries by playing book bingo!
Have you read a book recently that you absolutely loved? We will offer you the chance to recommend titles to your friends and neighbors. We will also have three fun get-together nights to brighten up those dark winter evenings.
Tuesday, January 19th: Coloring for Grown-ups. Coloring is not just for kids anymore. We will have printed pages along with colored pencils and markers. Or bring your own coloring books; we don’t judge.
Tuesday, February 16th: Craft Time. Making crafts is fun, but it can be a lonely pursuit. Bring your projects in to the library and socialize while you work! Don’t have a craft? We’ll have a few fun projects you can do in an hour.

There are two openings for the Lonsdale Public Library Board. Members are appointed by the Mayor to three-year terms to provide volunteer leadership to the library. The Board is responsible for making major decisions regarding the direction of the library. The Library Board meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm. Applications are due Friday, December 4th.
Want to wipe away your library fines while also doing a good deed? The Lonsdale Public Library is again offering our semi-annual week-long “Food for Fines” event. During the week of December 8-12 support the Lonsdale Area Food Shelf by donating items or money at the library and have your fines forgiven up to $10 per card. Non-perishable foods and personal care items welcomed, only non-expired items please. Think about making someone’s day by donating store-bought holiday treats such as nuts, candy or cookies! Please note that we can only waive late fees, not lost item fees, and only for fines imposed by Lonsdale Public Library. Any size donation is welcome and will help your friends and neighbors!
