Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from your Heyworth Public Library. We love serving our community whether it is finding the right book or cake pan, providing children’s programing or our Friday movies. We are here for you, even if it is just to provide a quiet space in our Community Room. We are so much larger than our walls.

Upcoming Programs:

January 8

  • After School Movies, 3:20 p.m. every Friday the library is open. Bring a friend and your own snack! All drinks need to have a screw on cap – no juice pouches or cans please.

January 4 and 18

  • Heyworth Knitters and Crafters, 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month, 6:30 p.m. -7:30 p.m.
  • We are thrilled to offer crafters a space to create and socialize! This group is very willing to teach anyone who would like to learn to knit or crochet. We have yarn, instructions for beginning projects, and needles to get you started on a new hobby. If you want to learn how to knit or crochet you must sign up to attend, so our group can have all you need ready for the evening. If you are a knitter or a crafter looking to socialize with others in our area, just show up as your schedule allows.
  • Available to anyone 4th grade and up. This group is also wanting to provide blankets to a local Project Linus chapter.

January 19

  • Heyworth Businesses Then and Now at 6 p.m. in the Community Room with a short presentation on the collected histories and pictures the Heyworth History Club have gathered to date.
  • Join us for this informative presentation, but more importantly bring items to share to broaden our collective knowledge of local business history. Do you have a ruler, baking mitt, or magnets in your possession of previous area businesses? Or pictures of area businesses? These are the items of interest we are looking to document. Give away trinkets with the business names are items we are looking to take pictures of to document this part of our local history.

It’s still fall 🎃🎃🎃 mark your calendar for this treat at the library.
Have you picked up your copy of The Crucible by Arthur Miller? Ann is a direct descendant of two persons accused of being witches executed during the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. She also had a third relative who was condemned but not hanged. One of these descendants was Rebecca Towne Nurse, a character in Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible. Join the Heyworth Public Library in reading The Crucible in October and hearing Ann's fascinating family study. Multiple copies will be available for checkout during October at the circulation desk.
Fall Animals y’all is the topic tonight at Family Storytime. Be sure to sign up as this program is popular and supplies are limited to 25.
