Santa Left Some Jingle at the Library

Dear Santa…

Thank you for the early gift. Santa left some jingle at the library this past Saturday! New board games will be purchased for our Get Board at the Library Game Cart. We are always looking for gently used board games for the library. Our board games are well used, and games that can be played in an hour or less, with not too many pieces are best. (Please no monopoly games.  Our parents thank you.)

Time to Order Magazines

Heyworth Public Library circulates over 80 magazine titles that may be checked out for seven days. This year we are seeking donations to cover our magazine orders. If we can save money on our magazine orders, we will be able to spend that savings on more children’s materials.

We will have a list of all our magazines that we order for the library with our cost for each title in a folder at the circulation desk. If you would care to donate a title, you can provide the cost of the magazine and be the first to check out the magazine when it arrives. If you do not see a title on our list or in the library that you are interested in, you may donate a title to expand our collection as well.

Thank you to those who donate magazine titles they receive at their homes each month as well. All donations are appreciated.

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.
