Library Lines March 2016
March is here. Robins and redwing blackbirds are being spotted, and Mother Nature teases us with 50 degree days. Everyone is ready to catch a little spring fever, and start planning their gardens. The library is the place to go to find out about backyard organic gardening. We maintain a current collection of gardening books, and if we don’t have what you’re looking for, we can get it for you. If gardening is not your hobby of choice, you can come to our guitar lessons on Wednesdays at 4:00, so you can learn a few songs to play around the campfire this summer, or you could join our craft group. Every season is craft season at the library. The craft group meets every Monday afternoon at 2:00 for a raucous good time. Come to learn, share or teach your favorite craft!
One spring tradition not to be missed is the annual Aitkin Memorial District Library Easter Egg Hunt. On Saturday, March 26, we’ll have an Easter themed Story Time at 10:15, and the Easter Egg Hunt will commence at 11:00. Kids aged 0-6 will hunt for eggs around the library, while kids from 7-12 will hunt for eggs at the community center. Please sign up at the library or on our Facebook page.
National Library Week isn’t until April, but we want to give advanced notice on a special program we’ll be having. On Saturday morning, April 16, we’ll be hosting a painting party. No painting experience is needed and by the end of the party, you’ll have your own personal masterpiece to hang on the wall!!! Cost of the class is $15 to cover materials, and seating is limited, so sign up at the library to reserve your seat. Other events coming to the library for National Library Week include Adult Coloring, Henna Design for Teens, and an exhibit from local artists. Contact the library if you’re interested in having your art displayed!
