March Madness @ the Library
By the time spring rolls around, most of us are a little stir crazy – eagerly anticipating spring and warmer weather. You can combat March madness with a trip to your local library
Choose from a wide range of programs including a special spring break crafternoon, Story Times, teen writing club, ADHD Understanding and Awareness seminar, Scrabble or chess. (Pick up a copy of our Children and Teens March calendar for program details.)
You can escape March madness (and perhaps visit your favorite beach or island!) in the pages of a good book. If your looking for inspiration, check out the weekly “What We’re Reading,” a new column in which library staff shares their favorite reads with a short synopsis of what the book was about and why they enjoyed it. Because many staff members are sharing their favorites each week, various genres and interests are covered. Hopefully there will be something of interest to everyone.
Our book clubs are also sharing their views and opinions about the books they are reading in a regular column on our website. Several book clubs have already shared their thoughts on what they are reading—a new one publishes weekly.
Of course, there are also many resources available 24/7 from your library via our mobile catalog and website which don’t require a trip to the library. eResources like OverDrive, Zinio magazines and Transparent Language will provide enjoyment and entertainment for library users of all ages. These resources are free—all you need is your library card.
Happy March – and Happy Reading!
