The Blaine County Journal News-Opinion - We've Got The County Covered

Blaine County Library

 

February 13, 2019

Story Time is Tuesday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Middle School Hangout is Tuesday afternoons from 3:30 to 4:30 and is open to kids in grades 6 to 8. Thursdays is LEGO Club for kids in grades K through 6.

February is "Love Your Library" month. The entire month of February is dedicated to the people who love whole buildings devoted to the reading, housing, organizing, categorizing, finding, studying and otherwise loving books. Libraries provide so much more than a place to enjoy great novels or to discover amazing adventures and untold history. They help ace research papers and provide a quiet space to study, but they do so much more. For preschoolers, libraries entertain with Story Time and hands-on activities, exposing them to music, art and their first friendships. Many communities rely on their libraries for meeting space for public forums, socials, fundraisers and classes. Libraries lend not only books, but music and movies. In many communities, the library is the only resource for free Wi-Fi. Rotating art displays give local artists exposure to the community. Larger libraries provide preservation services, preserving some of the most treasured books, periodicals and documents for future generations.

If you don't have a library card, it's never too late! Visit your library to get one!

The display table will be full of romances for the month of February. Come celebrate the Library Lover's Month and checkout a romance to enjoy. While you are here, fill out one of the "I Love My Library Because" Hearts.

We have a few new books ready this week. "There There" by Tommy Orange is one of the best 10 books of 2018. It is the story of twelve unforgettable characters, Urban Indians living in Oakland, California, who converge and collide on one fateful day. A portrait of an America few of us have ever seen and a stunning novel that grapples with a complex and painful history. In "The Lost Man" by Jane Harper brothers Nathan and Bub Bright meet for the first time in months at the remote fence line separating their cattle ranches in the lonely outback. Their third brother, Cameron, lies dead at their feet. "The Wedding Guest" by Jonathan Kellerman is a new Alex Delaware thriller. "I Owe You One" by Sophie Kinsella is an irresistible story of love and empowerment about a young woman with a complicated family, a handsome man who might be "the one," and an IOU that changes everything.

There is always something going on at the library. Check us out on Facebook or look us up on our website at http:www.blainecountylibrary.org for up to date information about what's going on!
