Saturday, October 10th is Star Wars Reads Day…and we’re having some fun at the library to go along with it! Stop by anytime between 10am – 5pm to take part in a special Star Wars themed I Spy, grab up a few great Star Wars books, and take home some crafts and special bookmarks. It’s going to be a great day!

We’re On Tumblr!

We’re excited to really get going on this Tumblr thing for the library…and now we have our own Tumblr page!

You can find us at Tales of a Small Town Library on Tumblr (just click the link to go there now). So far, we’re adding links slowly, but it’s going to be a fun, ongoing project for us.  If you love Tumblr, give us a quick follow and we promise lots of interesting library and book related posts weekly!

 

Lambsdown Park Festival

Last year, Meriah and Emma worked hard at the Lambsdown Park Festival, promoting library services, the TD Summer Reading Club, and our first foray into reading a book with patrons in our Summer Book Relay.

lambsdown park festivalWe’re gearing up for a fun day once again, Saturday, June 20th from 10am – 3pm. Drop by the library table to pick up information on our TD Summer Reading Club, find out about exciting library initiatives, and grab a summer calendar. Meriah and our summer student Sarah, will be there to answer all of your questions….and maybe even have something fun for you to participate in!

If you’re at the Lambsdown Park Festival, be sure to take a few minutes to speak with them. It’s going to be a fun day!

Check Out a Skill!

20150320_161253We’re getting ready for something interesting in April. Not everyone is technologically-savvy, so we’ve decided to offer a “Check Out a Skill” week at the library. From April 13 -24, we’re offering half-hour sessions with one of our skill experts.  Learn to use Pinterest or Twitter, open up an email account, or finally get on Facebook and learn how to use it!

We’re taking registrations now, so give us a call. No “skill” is too simple to learn, and it’s the perfect time to learn how to use that new device (or that old one). Where else could you get this for free?  No where! Only at your library.
