Weekly Newsletter ~ January 16, 2014

The WINTER READ 2014:  Stay Classy with the Classics is just around the corner.  We will offer reading for prizes for all ages during the months of February and March.  Stop in and see our list of prizes as we gear up for WINTER READ.  Our Thursday evening children’s story time will also begin again during these months from 6:15 pm to 7 pm!

During the month of February we will be hosting a “Blind Date with a Book” event all month.  We will select award winning, highly recommended favorite reads and wrap them in paper.  Patrons can then choose to select a random book to check out and read.  We aren’t arranging marriages, and not a dime has to be spent!  Just give a new book a try – you never know which new favorite author or genre you might fall in love with.

A new year and new digital toys may have been gifted to you this holiday season.  If your digital device uses apps from the Google Play or iTunes stores it will also work with our library apps.  Visit our website at heyworthlibrary.com for tutorial help sheets with the various ereaders using Overdrive, or call to schedule a face to face tutorial (473-2313) on using the library’s apps.

Monday Evening Book Club, 6:30 p.m.

January 27: A Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.

February 24:  Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight.
