January 2018 HAPPENINGS

GARDENING WITH FRIENDS : Last Saturday, each month, 10 a.m.  February 24 is the next meeting when the group will bring their seed catalogs and talk over their spring gardening plans. This open forum meeting will give you time to ask experienced gardeners about which varieties work best for them.  This family friendly group says, bring your young gardeners too.

4-H MEETING: February 6 at 6:30. Group meets on 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm with Leader Sponsor Brad James. Parents are expected to attend with their child. Enter at the back door of the Library, for the Librarian will be locking upstairs front doors when she goes home. If you arrive early, though, you may check out books for you and your 4-H winner from 6-6:30!

TEEN READ CHALLENGE is ON! We are asking Teen Readers to step into the library and check out some books. Read, read, read from now through Spring Break, then we will announce the top two readers. We are giving away 2 sets of Classic tales. One will get the Complete set of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, while the other winner will get a complete collection of Lord of the Rings penned by J.R.R. Tolkien. Plus these top Two each get a $25.00 gift card to Walmart to buy even MORE BOOKS! Everyone who reads-checks out-and in-at least 20 Books is a winner too, because they will get admitted to the Teens Afterhours Party at the OWL in March. Lots of Fun planned for that–Books, Food, Music-surprises! Sign up at the OWL today! The Reading Kings of grade school fame just put their names on the list, so it’s heating up, people! Get your READ ON!

Saturday April 21st is Spring Fling in Hooker, Area Authors invited to show their books that day. Call Carolyn.
Shop our BIG BOOK SALE at the Library that afternoon 2-5 pm.

Summer Reading Plans are beginning. Will you Help? #Libraries Rock!!! Volunteers are needed to teach quiz students on their book, to read to children, to teach music, to demonstrate a musical intstrument, or be an actor in a play. We need spotlights–maybe left over from Christmas? And a Karaoke machine.
