Weekly Newsletter ~ March 19, 2014

The WINTER READ 2014:  Stay Classy with the Classics is near its end.  Have you got your READ on at your Heyworth Public Library this winter?  Get in before the end of March to earn tickets for prizes.

Don’t forget to pick up a copy of Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth to read for our Reel Time/Real Talk programming for this coming April 14th at 6 pm.  Come join the Heyworth Public Library for fun evenings of books and movies.  Read the book, then come to the library to watch the movie.  After each movie we will discuss which we thought was better.  The book or the movie?  This is an all ages program, and would make a great family activity.
