Let this April be a time of To Do's at your Library in Taylorsville. Listed below are some of the Awesome April events we have planned for you to mark off of your To Do List.
April 7th thru April 13th we will be celebrating National Library Week throughout our system. Here at Taylorsville we will be honoring our patrons of the community with a reception at the library. This will be a ‘come and go’ event on Friday, April 12th from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
Our county wide event for National Library Week will include the Mize, Polkville and Raleigh libraries. During this event patrons are encouraged to come in and write a Six Word Story. This event stems from the story of Ernest Hemingway winning a bet that he could write a short story only six words long. His story has a beginning, a middle and an end. The story is “For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn”. We are inviting all our patrons to come in and use their writing skills to write their own Six Word Story. This event begins April 8th thru April 13th with the winner announced on Monday, April 15th. A $25 dollar gift card will be awarded to the winner.
Children’s Book Week will be observed beginning April 30th thru May 5th. For every children’s book your child reads, their name will be entered into a drawing for a jar of candy. The drawing will be held May 13th. This year is the 100th Anniversary of Children’s Book Week so I’m betting there might be 100 pieces of candy in the jar!
Each Wednesday at 11:00 am will be our Preschool Story Time. Our Awesome April themes are:
April 3rd: Oh, The Green Green Grass of Home
April 10th: A “Pet” a Day, Keeps Us Happy All Day
April 17th: Creepy Carrots / Happy Easter
April 24th: Let’s Take Care of Our Home
These programs are filled with fun books, music, and crafts!
