Spring into The NAPL

Submitted by VERONICA LAROCHE
Now that the rain showers have begun, it’s easy to tell we’re finally in spring. On rainy days, afternoons or evenings, we invite you to join us at the library for programs, comradery and the collections of books, DVDs, music and audiobook CDs, and board and card games available to you. Want to stay at home instead? We understand. Check out our E-collections using your library card. You can access a variety of E-books and E-audiobooks through CloudLibrary, E-magazines through Flipster and all the news you could ever want from a variety of American and worldwide newspapers, including The Morning Call, through Access World News.
For children this month, Miss Tessa continues storytimes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays through May 2. Lap-sit Storytime (0 to 24 months) is Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m.; Toddler Storytime (18 to 36 months) is Wednesdays at 10 a.m. and Preschool Storytime (3 to 5 years) is Thursdays at 10 a.m. Kids crafts are available to take home on a first-come first-served basis. April 1 began with the potato Easter egg stamps craft, and on April 15 a handprint butterflies craft will begin.
The 3-5 clubs and K-2 Storycraft are back this month on Thursday evenings. Game Club is April 11 at 6 p.m. and STEAM Craft Club is April 18 at 6 p.m. This month we’ll be experimenting with stormwater runoff. K-2 Storycraft is April 25 at 4:30 p.m. We’ll be reading “Ants in Your Pants, Worms in Your Plants” by Diane De Groat and completing a related Earth Day craft.
For tweens and teens, Game Club and Anime Club were on Tuesday, April 9. Registration has already begun for May 6’s Trinket Dish Take-Home, and the Tween and Teen Advisory Board will be back on June 4 at 5 p.m. Don’t forget that TAB is also considered a volunteer opportunity for any service hours you may need to collect.
For adults, Laid-Back Book Club is reading “Mrs. Quinn’s Rise to Fame” by Olivia Ford in April. Our Adult Craft Hour will be creating a variety of paper flowers for the gorgeous vases created last month on Monday, April 15 at 6:30 p.m. Our own Georgia will be presenting the program “Five Love Languages Among Friends and At Work” on Monday, April 22 at 6 p.m., and, of course, Once Upon a Crime will be discussing kidnapping on Monday, April 29 at 6 p.m. Finally, if you’ve recently gotten your hands on new technology, please don’t forget about our tech tutoring, which is available on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon by appointment only.
On a final note, we have not forgotten about our annual fund drive. We have every intention of sending out our yearly letter, but due to unforeseen circumstances we will be delayed to May or June. Thank you for your continued support; we hope to see you soon.
