            Spring is in the air!  What does that mean?  It means that pretty flowers are blooming and that everything is growing.  How can we, people, grow?  That’s simple – by reading.  Reading (books, magazines, newspapers, whatever) broadens our mind, makes us think and learn – that is how we grow.  The Elma Ross Public library wants everyone to grow and learn and have fun!  Here is the calendar of events for the month of April.

            Toddler Time is offered on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at 11am.  All toddlers and their caregivers are invited to come to the library to listen to stories, color/craft, and have a light snack.  We love toddler time at the library.

            Lunch & Learn will be offered on Wednesday, April 24th at 12 noon in the library meeting room.  Our guest speaker is yet to be announced, please stay tuned for details.  As always, please remember to bring a lunch, the library will provide drinks and dessert.  Let’s Lunch & Learn at the library.

            The Friends of the Library are working hard to schedule the Annual Membership dinner for the end of this month.  We are finalizing details for our speaker, so please stay tuned.  It promises to be a wonderful event.  Please be supportive of our Friends of the Library group – we need your support.  Without the Friends support, the library would not be able to offer the programs and materials that it does.  Membership dues range from a $1.00 Student membership to a $1,000.00 Life membership.  Any amount that you send is greatly appreciated.

            Happy Reading!
