Have Book – Will Travel is Heyworth Public Library’s summer reading theme for summer 2013.  The theme is sponsored by iRead and the Illinois Library Association.

Our summer programs will kick off June 11 to start our Tuesday morning Family Reading Story Times, each Tuesday at 10:30 am through July 30th.  Thursday mornings we will once again feature many arts and creativity programs for differing ages at 10:30 am; June 13 through July 25.  On Thursday evenings our regular evening Family Story Time will offer a six week-long series at 6:15pm to enjoy summer activities.  We will once again offer a morning movie series each Friday at 10:30 am; June 7 through July 26th.  Our teen programs will be offered on Saturday mornings at 10:30 am.  Watch for more details to come!

Don’t forget to give Overdrive, Freegal, and Bookmyne a try!  See our website at heyworthlibrary.com for more information.

Thank you to the family and friends of Lorraine “Peanuts” Daughty and Clint Ferguson, Jr. for the memorial gifts given in their names. These gifts help the library extend the services and offerings to our community and are very much appreciated.

Next time you are in the library come view the memorial case showcasing a collection of lucky elephants on display by Kathy Stengel.  She learned that elephant statues with their trunks in an upward position were considered lucky and decided to only collect lucky elephants. These beautiful, whimsical statues will be on display until May 14.

The General Federated Woman’s Club of Heyworth has on display in the entry foyer of the library a recap in pictures of their previous years’ work. They have earned many awards and honors from within their organization.  Thank you for this display and ALL your hard work making Heyworth a better place to live!
