Library Corner

               Happy Wednesday, everybody!   Another week has passed including a holiday for most people.  We at the Sharon Springs Public Library did not take much of a break.  We have programs to plan and people to help. 

               First, we have children’s programs.   On Friday, December 1 we will have story hour at our usual time of 10.  Trina will share a story, a craft, and a small snack.   The kids have a lot of fun, and truth be told, so does Trina. 

               We have an afterschool story hour on Monday, December 4 at 3:30 – 4:30.  This year’s holiday theme will be hot chocolate.   (Inspired by the song from Polar Express) We have books on hot chocolate, games to play, and a small craft.  Of course, rumor has it that we will also have a cup of cocoa to taste.  For more information, contact the library.

               Before I move off children’s programs, we still have several free books for the preschoolers.   This was a part of the Kansas Reads to Preschoolers program.   If you have a child in Sharon Springs or Wallace who is ages 1 to 4 and have not picked up your packet, please stop by the library.  We should have a book for them. 

               For kids of all ages, I want to remind you we have an Xbox and Wii system to use.   It is on a cart so if there does happen to be a conflict with the room we can move it elsewhere in the library.  It is a lot of fun for everyone.

               Second, we have programs for older people too.  Wednesday November 29, we had our second mystery book discussion group.   If you have suggestions for future books to read, let Lisa know.   We are also finalizing plans for a Creative Writing group, a healthy habits group, and possibly just a time to get together and share ideas or support for goals.   If you have suggestions for other groups, let us know.

               Third, I want to say it has been so much fun playing host to the variety of groups that use the meeting room.   Reminder to let us know about a day ahead of time so staff will be there and we can have the room ready.  If you do not know which meeting room that is, please come to the library and check it out.

               Finally, I want to point out the obvious.   We have books!   Whether you want to start to get in the Christmas spirit by reading one of the many holiday books we have or maybe, you want to stay with the usual history, mystery, or nonfiction books.   We have them and we are more than willing to help give suggestions if you need them.

               Have a great week!  Hope to see you soon!
