Celebrate Money Smart Month With Heyworth Public Library

The Library is celebrating Money Smart Month in April with three programs. Bernie Wrezinski, a local Heyworth resident, with The Foundation for Financial Education, will be presenting two programs on Social Security benefit planning. Social Security 101 will be on April 3rd at 6:30 p.m. and Advanced Social Security Planning in 2018 will be held on April 17 at 6:30 p.m. Our third program offered will be Sonja Reese providing tips to organize your personal records NOW, before others need them. She calls this A Grab and Go book. Join us for Sonja’s presentation on creating your own Grab and Go Book on April 21 at 10:30 a.m. The topic is relevant to people of all ages, and she encourages families to come hear this together. All programs are free and no financial products are being sold or recommended. Sign up for these programs at the library as space is limited.

The Winter READ: Books Gone Hollywood continues through the month of March as we encourage all ages to read for fun prizes. You receive a ticket for every book, audiobook, eBook or magazine checked out through March 31. The tickets will go in a drawing of your choice. Prizes are on display in the library.

Summer Reading is around the corner and we are seeking fun prizes for all ages. Donations are gratefully accepted. We are also looking for a rock collection to display in the library for the summer. If you are willing to share your rock collection please contact Beth Porter.

Thank you to the family of Marion Harris for creating a memorial in her memory. Many memorial gifts have been received this past week to honor her life. This gift will be used to update furniture in the library. Also thank you to Nancy Beveridge for providing the Dr. Seuss book prizes for our Winter Read.

We are so much larger than our walls.
