Weekly Newsletter ~ January 16, 2013

If you enjoy Heyworth history, stop in the library for a treat from JoAnn Nowlin.  Currently on display in both our front and memorial cases is a collection of Heyworth memorabilia Ms. Nowlin has been collecting for a number of years. Her father, Andy Lush,  was the owner of the Andy’s Tavern in the 1950’s.  The building is no longer around. Currently J’s Dance Studio is standing in tavern’s former location.

Ms. Nowlin wanted to collect Andy’s Tavern memorabilia.  Her father had given out ashtrays around Christmas each year and had match books available all year. As she attended auctions and estate sales, she would find interesting pieces of Heyworth history that didn’t represent her father’s business, but she found these other facets of our town’s history equally interesting.  She is still searching for an ashtray or match book from Andy’s Tavern and continues to keep her eye out for a memento of her family’s history.  Her collection of Heyworth history has grown and we are very happy she has chosen to share this collection with our community through February 14.

The Winter READ is here!  Read Undercover from February 1 through March 31 to be in a drawing for an exclusive Heyworth Public Library mug!  On February 1, adults can get a Read Undercover game sheet.  There are different genres and types of library material listed on the sheet in rows of four.  You choose if you want to select books and materials from the game sheet across, up or down, diagonally, or all 4 corners.  Record the four titles on your game sheet and turn it in to be in the drawing.  Children, kindergarten through fifth grade, can use a Read Undercover reading log, and for every four books read, they will be entered in our drawing for an exclusive Heyworth Library mug as well.

Thursday Evening Storytime will be resuming on February 7th at 6:15 pm.  We will only have one story time for all ages.  The story focus and activities will be designed for Preschool – 1st grade.  All younger and older siblings are most welcome to come and participate.  We will be calling this story time Family Story Time.  Plan to join us each Thursday evening through April.
