“Family Book Bingo” is set from 5 to 6 p.m. April 14. Every “Bingo” win will yield a new or gently used paperback book. From 5 to 6 p.m. April 16, the public is invited to attend Family Story Time with “Miss Julie.” On April 17, the public is invited to learn how to download free music from the library’s website.
Between 4 and 6 p.m. April 18, Heidi Warstler will show library patrons how to use OverDrive, a service library staffers offer so patrons can download eBooks to their devices for free.
Also, all week there will be a “Book in a Jar” contest upstairs and down at the library. Patrons are invited to take a look at the glass jar on the circulation desk and see if they can guess the title of the book by the shredded pages inside. The names of people with correct guesses will be entered into a drawing for a prize at the end of the week.
On April 15, the library will close at 3:30 p.m. for staff training.

This week is the first week of Spring Lapsit. The session with “Miss Heidi” will take place downstairs in the meeting room at 11 a.m. Tuesday.
Lapsit is a program for children up to 3 years old and their caregivers. Through songs, finger plays, motion and stories, Lapsit is designed to encourage word association as well as verbal and mobility development. The theme for this spring session is “Piggies!”
Sign-up is available in the Children’s Department, but walk-ins are also welcome.
Poetry will be featured during Story Time this week. Poems by Jack Prelutsky, Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein and others will be featured. Attendees will also decorate spring leaves and combine them to make a “Story Time poet tree.” Snacks will be provided.
