LIBRARY MUSINGS: GFPL director breaks first rule about book club
Here’s what’s going on at the library:
Drop by the library on Friday, February 21 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm for our monthly Lego Club! We got a brand-new bin donated last week to add to our collection – so look out for a whole bunch of new pieces. All ages welcome, and snacks will be provided.
I’m going to break the first rule of book club, and talk to you about it. It’s not too late to swing by the library to pick up a copy and read the February book in time for our meeting at Christina Lake on Wednesday, February 26 at 1:30 pm, and on Thursday, Feb. 27 at the library in Grand Forks at 7:00 pm. The book this month is The Beekeeper’s Apprentice, by Laurie R. King – a suspenseful novel in which a young girl pursues an apprenticeship with the most famous detective of all, a now-retired Sherlock Holmes. This is the first in a series of books – so if you like this one, there will be lots more to read!
Our weekly storytime is held every Friday from 10:30 to 11:00. We’ve got rhymes, songs, books, and feltboard stories. Everyone is welcome! Not just moms – but dads too, as well as grandparents, daycares, caregivers, etc.
And a reminder…
…about some of the other wonderful programs that run continuously at the library:
- We have an adult knitting and crocheting club that meets on Saturday afternoons from 1:15 to 2:45 (we provide needles and wool, but you can bring your own supplies too, if you like).
- Our chess club is always happy to welcome new members – they meet on Tuesdays from 4:00 to 7:00 pm, and on Saturdays from 3:00 – 4:30 pm.
- The genealogy group meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 10:00 am.
- The writer’s guild meets on the third Thursday of the month at 6:00 pm.
