April 2016 at Lowder Regional Library
The Ladies of High Tea will be meeting Tuesday, April 5, 2016 at 3PM and reading the book My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult.
Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate — a life and a role that she has never challenged…until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister — and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable, a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves.
The Lowder Regional Branch Library Chess Club meets every Saturday, from 10AM to 1245—sharp. In the event that the club is not meeting a sign will be posted as soon as possible announcing the postponement. Join us and learn how to play chess or to brush up on your skills. Parents, chess is a game that will help build the brain and help your child with their future education—not to mention that it teaches patience as well.
Don’t forget Gamer’s Club is the Second Friday of the month 4PM-5PM. There is a limited number of slots available and pre-registration is required and a signed permission slip must be on file. Parents must stay in the library while children are playing.
On the third Friday of the month, 4PM-5PM, the Lowder Lego League, has fun in the meeting room. Due to fire regulations we have to also limit the number of participants for this event as well so pre-registration is required.
Lowder Staff finishes an eight-week Job Search/Job Preparedness Workshop on Monday, April 11, 2016. This will also kick off programming in celebration of National Library Week (April 10-16, 2016).
NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK @ LOWDER
The Lowder Staff would like to invite everyone to come visit us. We will again be “dressing up” for the week (check out the photos of previous celebrations on our Facebook page – MCCPL Lowder – for an idea of how outrageous these Librarians can be during National Library Week). The schedule is as follows: Monday—Dress Professionally; Tuesday—Twin Day (dress alike); Wednesday—Wacky Hair Day; Thursday—Dress like a Nerd Day (Act like a nerd?); and Friday—College (Spirit) Day.
We will be offering “Tours” Monday-Friday at 10AM and 3PM. This would be especially good for students as the Librarians unlock the mystery of the shelving system—Why are there numbers on the spine labels? What’s a spine label? For the answers to these questions (and many more) come take a tour!
Tuesday, April 12th is D.E.A.R. Day. D.E.A.R. stands for Drop Everything and Read. Every hour during this day we will – Drop everything and one of the librarians will read a short story, and easy book, a short newspaper article, a short chapter in a book, a poem, song lyrics, a joke (?) — something ALOUD for the whole library to hear.
We are hoping to start three new Book Clubs that week as well. Organizational Meetings will be:
Wednesday, April 13th – 430PM-530PM — Ages 16-20 – Young Adult
Thursday, April 14th – 4PM-5PM – Ages 10-12 – Tweens
Friday, April 15th – 430PM-530PM – Ages 13-15 – Teens
All meetings will be held in the Meeting Room just to the right as you come in the front door.
Thursday, April 14 we will be having a Read to Me Mommy Lap Sit for Infants and their Mommies. Please bring a blanket to sit on as we will be spreading out all over the floor with our babies in our laps.
