Earth Day

Happy Earth Day!  We are celebrating by sharing everything you need to grow a plant: a little biodegrable pot, some potting soil and a couple of seeds for either green beans or sunflowers.

Plant kits are free to anyone of any age while supplies last.  We will also be offering a fabulous prize to whoever grows the most magnificent plant, so be sure to share a picture with us when your plant is flourishing!

Book Chat – Podcasts

Our latest book chat by Penny discussed what podcasts are, and some good ones about books.
Podcasts discussed were:
LeVar Burton Reads
Fictional
Myths and Legends
Greeking Out
Professional Book Nerds
What Should I Read Next
The Slowdown
By the Book

Brief mentions were made of: Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day, SFF Yeah!, Hurry Up and Read, Celebrity Book Club, Smart Podcast Trashy Books, Hey YA

Click on any of the above podcasts to be taken to their website, where you can listen to past and present episodes.

Podcasts can also be listened to on cellphones. There are many different apps that can be used to stream a podcast. If you are using your cellphone, it most likely came with a podcast app that you can use. An iphone comes with the apple podcast app while other phones may have Google podcasts.  Some other popular apps that are available through an app store on your phone Stitcher, Spotify, IHeartRadio, PodcastAddict, Pandora, and PodcastGuru.   After you select an app, you can search for the names of the podcasts you want to listen to, and voila! You are then able to listen to episodes of those podcasts.

If you would like to try listening to podcasts, but need a little help getting started, feel free to stop by the library, and Penny would be glad to help you!

Repairs

Consider this a reminder to please let the library do repairs.  We have training and materials to do a much better job than the general public.  If you tear a page, please just let us know.   Don’t do this!

Meeting Room Opening!

After a long hiatus, our meeting room will be reopening for meetings beginning Monday, March 29th!  In accordance with current regulations, the limit will be 49 people (50% capacity).  Masks and social distancing are required.  Remember that keys must be picked up while the library is open, so check with the library regarding hours if you are unsure.   Please call the library with any questions.

TEMPORARY Meeting Room Application

The story room remains closed until further notice.
