Spring Break @ Your Library

Staying home for Spring Break this year? There’s lots to do at New Castle-Henry County Public Library.

Teens are invited to participate in an art contest, with the winner announced during National Library Week at 6 p.m. as teens get ready to “get down” and “chow down” at the DDR Tournament and Pizza Taste-Off. This party is planned for April 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. For those outside of the teen scene, DDR stands for Dance Dance Revolution... a popular game matching dance moves on a special footpad connected to a game system.

There are several activities planned in the Children’s Library, too. On Monday, enjoy a funny movie in the story room at 2 p.m. Snacks will be provided.

Kids ages 8-12 will kick off Piggy Poetry Month during library week. On Wednesday, April 5, at 3 p.m., the Piggy Poetry activity will include a pig hunt, Jack Prelutsky poems and a craft.

Stop in at the Children’s Library on Saturday, April 8, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to make an Easter Craft.

Story Time for ages 3-kindergarten will continue during National Library Week at 1:30 on Tuesday and 10 a.m. on Friday. Toddler Tales will be offered on Saturdays at 10 a.m. in April.

Adults can join a club just for them... the Bestsellers Book Club. The club will have its first meeting on Tuesday, April 4, at 6:30 p.m. in the Jennings Meeting Room to discuss S is for Silence by Sue Grafton.

Friends of the Library will host a special book sale on Saturday, April 8.
