Congratulations To Winter READ 2017 Winners

The Winter READ: Novel Destinations has ended. Congratulations to our Dr. Seuss book winners: Mindy McMillan, Jenalee Macy, Noah Kindred, Sophie Peterson, Lauryn Streenz, and Angie Murphy. Each won a Dr. Seuss book provided by Nancy Beveridge to encourage reading and celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday in March. We also had 46 other winners of Winter READ prizes, with 196 people who participated in the Winter READ this February and March. We look forward to summer reading set to begin June 1!

Do you have a collection you would be willing to display at the library?  We are seeking collections to display for a month at a time for the rest of the 2017 year. Stop in or give a call if you would be willing to loan the library your collection. We have had rubber duckies, antique toys, pottery, and more in the past.  We would love to show off your treasures.

We are so much larger than our walls.

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.
