The list of programs and meetings happening at YOUR Rowan County Public Library during the next month is a long one. I’m going to mention some of them; you need to go to rowancountylibrary.org to view the entire calendar or pick up a printed calendar at the front circulation desk.
Many of you are not only familiar with, but, you expect the Library to host the “Heirloom Seed” program each spring. Well, put it on your calendar for March 30 at 6 p.m. Julie Maruskin has changed the name to “The 2017 Traveling Tomato Show” for this crowd-pleasing heirloom seed-starting workshop. Attendees who have PREREGISTERED will receive a free organic heirloom tomato seedling and six packets of tomato seeds which include locally grown heirloom varieties (a $22 value!). Call 784-7137 to preregister. If you have plants, bulbs, or seeds you would like to share with others, bring those with you.
You’ve been waiting a year for the Annual Friends of the Library Used Book Sale, and it’s almost here. Mark your calendar now for Thursday-Saturday, April 6-8, and get to the Library early for the first chance to select from thousands of titles—books, CDs, DVDs, and more. The sale runs
9 a.m. – 8 p.m. on Thursday, and 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, with a super sale during the final hours on Saturday. Don’t forget to shop in the Friends of the Library Bookstore while you’re at the Library. The Bookstore is always open when the Library is open—64 hours a week.
It’s Minecraft Club time on Saturday, March 11, 1-3 p.m. The Library provides the game access for young folks in Grades 1-8. Seating is limited; preregister by calling 784-7137.
The Library’s monthly Family Movie Night is next Thursday, March 16, beginning at 6 p.m. Bring the family and enjoy the Walt Disney animated musical adventure film “Moana.” As always, the popcorn will be free, freshly popped, and delicious!
Take a midday break and stop in any time between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesday, March 21, for our Adult Coloring and Coffee program. We provide the supplies; all we need is YOU.
Builders between the ages of 5 and 12 are invited to join the monthly LEGO Club fun on Saturday, March 25, 1-3 p.m. LEGOs and snacks will be provided. Bring your imagination!
From learning to play chess or a dulcimer to crafting and quilting, there’s a program for you on the Library’s calendar. What are you waiting for? Join the fun!
