Personalized Internet "Radio Station"

I just found out about an interesting website that allows you to create your own customizable "radio station." It's called Pandora. You tell it a song or artist you like and it finds more music like your favorites. Give it try!

Lick the Cold. Read Something Bold!

The library's Winter Reading Program started yesterday. Stop by the library to sign up for the program and get your card. For each visit, have a staff member mark your card. After 10 visits, you can pick up a prize. If you sign up during the month of December, you'll receive a candy cane. The Winter Reading Program will conclude on February 18, at the close of the library’s grand opening week.

Library Reopens to Serve the Public

New Castle-Henry County Public Library re-opened Monday after a two-week closing to settle into its new facility. All primary library services are functioning, but the library will reserve its grand opening celebration for February 12-18, when the finishing touches on the building are complete.

Visitors to the library this week can take advantage of library tours, which will be offered by Friends of the Library at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. today. Tours will be available at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Magician and actor Don Miller will present “A Charles Dickens Christmas” tonight at 6:30 p.m. in Meeting Rooms A & B. Part historical re-enactment and part magic show, this program is designed for all ages.

Children are invited to stop in to the Children’s Library to decorate and eat a cookie on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For more information about the library or any of the programs mentioned, come to the library or visit its web site at
