Weekly Newsletter ~ April 3, 2014


Have a bit of Heyworth memorabilia that you would like to share?  Interested in learning more about the history of our community?  Want to meet others with similar interests?  You are invited to our first Randolph Township History Symposium at the Heyworth Library on Tuesday, April 29 from 6:00-8:00.  Please bring along ANYTHING that may be related to the history of our area—pictures, artifacts, maps, documents, stories, advertising items, or family materials.  We are hoping to learn and gather information from each other!  Refreshments will be provided. Call the library at 473 2313 to RSVP or if you have any questions.  It will be a fun evening.  Hope to see you there!

Winter is officially over at the Heyworth Public Library.  The Winter Read has concluded with many winners in our drawings.  Thank you to all who participated.  Everyone is a winner who has access to a public library!  Stop by this month in celebration of National Library Week and see all the new books and magazines coming in daily.  We want to again thank the General Federated Women’s Club of Heyworth for their donation of four Dr. Suess books for a drawing this past month in honor of his birthday.  And the winners are:  Casey Scott, If I Ran the Rain Forest; Caleb Zellers, Horton Hears a Who!; Beth Grobauskas, Do You Like Green Eggs and Ham?; Carrie Miller, Oh Say Can You Seed?.  Congratulations and happy reading at your Heyworth Public Library!

Planning is underway for our summer reading program:  PAWS TO READ 2014.  We are gathering ideas and prizes.  If you have a prize you would like to donate to the summer reading program we would gratefully accept them for all ages.
