Thursday, April 13 at 6:30 p.m.Image of Shakespeare
Celebrate Shakespeare’s birth month with us. Who had more effect on the English language than William Shakespeare? He created over 1700 common words that before him were either used in a different manner or didn't exist at all. He did this by changing nouns into verbs, changing verbs into adjectives, connecting words never before used together, adding prefixes and suffixes, or just invented entirely new words from scratch. Please sign up at the Library.

 

School Vacation Week- April 18-22Image of peeps
We will be having a Peep Diorama Contest for ALL AGES! Categories: 7 & under, 8-12, 13-17, and 18 + Two weeks before the event, come in and grab a diorama box (or use your own) and use marshmallow Peeps to create a theme- based box. Here are some suggestions for this: It could be a book (“James and the Giant Peep”) or a saying (“I only have Peeps for you”), or based on a movie/TV show, etc. Bring your finished box in during the April vacation week and we will display them. There will be voting cans next to each entry and at the end of the following week, on Friday, April 28 we will call one winner from each category. The winners will receive a small prize of unspeakable value, bragging rights for winning and their picture will be placed on our Facebook page. Come on PEEPle join the fun!
