An Amazing August at the Wead Library!

While summer may be waning for some, here at the Wead Library it is gung ho! We have so much planned for you, our patrons, who we appreciate so much. On August 11 from 1:00 to 6:00pm we will have our second annual Patron Appreciation Day! This is when we show our many loyal patrons, new patrons and hopefully returning patrons, how much the Library appreciates them. We have seen generations pass through our doors and watched them learn the glory of reading, the wonder of story telling and myriad craft projects and songs. We have been home to art exhibits, competitions, magic shows and  community gathering. From movie nights (free) to meetings of all kinds, our beautiful building has been your witness. Please let us share our appreciation with you. There will be free books and magazines, authors and book discussion, live music by gifted local musicians, refreshments and so much more. There is even an  AMNESTY  for any overdue books returned that day, no matter how old or overdue. On one day only, you can bring them back with no charge and in return we offer a smile and a thank you.  We will have special activities planned for our younger readers with crafts, live owls,  and even movies and a popcorn machine! We really do hope you bring the family to all join in the fun!

On August 18th, we will offer a Mindfulness Workshop at 6:30 followed by  a Book Talk with author, J. McArdle at 7:00pm. The second Mindfulness Workshop will take place at 6:30 on August 25th. The Mindfulness event is  particularly directed to teens wanting to learn to be more present in the moment.

Our Craft group continues to meet on the first and third Saturday of each month. Please bring your hand crafts to work on and discuss and share a great time with others passionate about knitting, crocheting, beading and more! All are welcome.

At 11:00am on Saturday, August 2oth, our social media mavens, Jenna and Nicolle, will give a talk on how to use and get the most from sites like Pinterest, Good Reads and other social media. It should be great fun and an opportunity for those who are wondering what the fuss is all about.  Come join the Social Media Revolution!

This month on Saturday, August 27th at 11:00 AM our teen group will meet and share a movie together. All teens are welcome and we look forward to your sharing a fun Saturday morning.

As always Tech Talk continues but there will be a brief break the week of August 8-12. Tech Talk takes place every Wednesday from 2:00 to 3:00pm in our library. Our staff will help those facing challenges with their digital devices all free of charge. We will do our best to get you to enjoy your devices to the max. Help is on a first come first serve basis. Many’s the Kindle and Ipad we’ve explained! We can even help with digital cameras! So bring your devices in and our staff will nudge you into cyberspace!

Hope to see you all at  Patron Appreciation Day!
