Hooray for Books
March 1st through the 31st: The Herrick Memorial Library wants to celebrate books and reading. During the month of March, all adults, ages 18-199, and teens, ages 12-17, who borrow books from the library will be given the chance to win a Kindle reader. Each library visit (one per day), adults and teens who check out reading materials will be given a ticket (one per visit) to fill out and place in our drawing container. On April 1st, staff will draw one (1) winning ticket for the Kindle reader. So the more library visits and check outs you make the greater your chances are of being the winner.
Tuesday, March 11th at 6:30 pm. Queen Victoria invented it and everyone is wearing it... This class will provide attendees with the techniques and supplies to make either a necklace or bracelet.
