The Scandinavia Public Library has a new line-up of programs for 2013.
Begin the New Year early on Thursday, Dec. 27, with Winter Games & Crafts from 2-5 p.m. During this free program, individuals of all ages can make thank you cards and other crafts, play games and enjoy a healthy snack.
The library’s recurring programs will also see changes in the coming year, with some new programs being added, and old programs at new times.
At 4:30 p.m. each Monday through January, patrons can learn more about new computer gadgets and services during Tech Time @ the Library. Upcoming topics include, but may not be limited to, the online magazine service Zineo, OverDrive Digital Downloads, and an overview of Apple products, including the iPhone, iPod, and iPad. Participants can ask questions, bring in a device, and share tech knowledge.
Tuesdays will support several programs at the library. On the first and third Tuesday of each month from 2:15-3:30 p.m., share ideas on writing, memoirs and creativity with the Writing Group.
Discuss the best – and the worst – in film with the Movie Group. These discussions take place on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from noon-1 p.m. Attendees can bring a own lunch.
The Book Group will move to its new day beginning in January. This group covers a variety of genres and will now meet at 4 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month. At the next meeting, on Tuesday, Jan. 22, the group will discuss the novel “The Forgotten Gardener” by Kate Morton. Copies of this book will be available at the Scandinavia Public Library and through the online catalog at www.infosoup.org.
Crafting Bee will move to its new time Thursday mornings beginning on Thursday, Dec. 27. Taking place from 10 a.m. until noon (right after Community Coffee Hour), individuals are invited to bring their own craft to work on at the library in an atmosphere of support and camaraderie.
Lastly, know that patrons may “Book A Librarian” for any additional library needs they may have. This includes help learning how to use a computer, research support, scheduling a story time for a child, or learning a new craft. The library will be happy to match any needs with the right librarian at a time that suits various schedules.
The Scandinavia Public Library is located at 349 N. Main Street in Scandinavia.
