Our children’s afterschool programming, and Story Times, are now on break for the Holidays, but they’ll be back before you know it!
All children’s programs will return the week of January 8th, 2018, so keep your eyes open. In the meantime, Happy Holidays and Happy Reading:)
The Library extends an invitation to all community members to join them in kicking off the holiday season during our annual Holiday event. Following the Parade of Lights and the lighting of the Platz Christmas Tree, the Library will be open and bustling with festive energy. The Holiday Open House features an opportunity to have pictures taken with Santa Claus, a couple of holiday-themed crafts, as well as tasty treats and hot cocoa. Additionally, we’re pleased to share that, for the second year in a row, we will feature a Holiday Ukulele Concert from 6:45 until 7:30!
Don’t miss the fun. It’s THE place to be after the downtown Parade of Lights and Tree-Lighting ceremony.
We’re only half-way through NaNoWriMo, friends – you can do it!
Don’t forget our prize package: anyone checking in at the VPL, or posting pics of themselves writing at the VPL, during the month of November will be entered to win a writer’s prize pack which includes 2 beautiful blank journals donated by Pressing Matters, a $5 gift certificate for The Bean, and ‘A Book that Takes its Time’, by Irene Smit and Astrid van der Hulst.
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. Every November, thousands of writers around the world congregate at Come Write In spaces to pursue their creative dreams and write the first draft of their novel. What better place to settle into the creative task than in one of our comfy chairs in front of the fireplace? You can even bring your latte.
We are looking for a new Public Relations & Programming Specialist, and it could be you! First review of applications begins November 22nd; position open until filled. For more information, view the job description below, or give us a call at the library – 677-7060.
