Celebrate National Library Week, April 7-13, at the Bradford County Library. During this special time, the library will waive $5 worth of fines for every item brought in to support the Bradford County Humane Society.
The weekly Learning Time will meet Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. with Fran Johnson from the Penn State Extension Office to learn about eggs and chicks. This program is ideal for preschoolers with stories, songs, games, crafts, and a snack. In addition to socialization, kids benefit from practicing school readiness skills such as writing and cutting.
On Wednesday, April 10 at 6 p.m., meet pets available for adoption from the Bradford County Humane Society in honor of National Pet Day as part of their regular family programming.
On Thursday, April 11, the library will be showing a family movie rated PG on their big screen, complete with surround sound, at 10 a.m. Free popcorn will be included. At 1 p.m. the “Book Share” group will be meeting to discuss any books they’ve read lately. Whether a new or old book, participants will get book recommendations from fellow members.
The weeklong party culminates with a “Customer Appreciation Day” with light refreshments on Friday, April 12. Discover the many resources, both print and digital, that the library has to offer for free. Learn about the exciting new bookmobile scheduled to arrive this fall.
Lastly, adults are invited to an after-hours Nerf War program from 6 to 7 p.m. Bring your own Nerf gun and play capture the flag throughout the library stacks.
