This Week at the Library: New eBooks are in!

We had a great National Library Week, and already into the next week at Lower Macungie Library!

Thanks to all our library “Peeps” for a GREAT National Library Week! It was quite a busy week, between the normal library programs plus some extra NLW goings-on! We started out with becoming a “film set” for QNB’s second video in the Darth Spender vs. Qu-Bot saving series. All week we were giving away “extras," and at the end of the week, we started giving out a mountain of Peeps donated from Just Born (there is still a limited quantity left, which will be available while supplies last!) Then we capped off the week with our “Book” Sale down at the new Book Nook, run by our amazing Friends group! Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with us through the week!  Now getting back to our regular schedule…

This week at the library:

Monday: Book It Around the World! Gr.4-5; 6:30pm. This is our regular school year program for elementary school age kids in grades 4-5. In our “Around the World” theme, we’ll travel by continent across the globe and this month, we’re closing in on the finish line with stories about South America, our final destination on our global trip! We’ll hear stories from this continent and then do an activity. But don’t worry, just because the regular school year programs are ending, we still have other programs for this age group, including an Earth Day one, a Sneak Peek for Summer Reading and a Mother’s Day drop-by! Check out our activity calendar for details.

Tuesday: 4 year old storytime, 10:30am. Advanced registration is required for storytimes, as there’s a limit to how many kids I can fit into the program room, plus advanced registration helps me prepare for the right number of kids… not ending up “short” or wasting craft supplies when people don’t show, and there’s an age cutoff date based on the East Penn School District. Contact us if you’re interested.

Read About It! Book Club, 10:00am. As part of a grant from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, professional facilitator, Dr. Carolyn Segal, Professor of English at Cedar Crest College, will lead participants in discussion on  contemporary memoirs written by authors who represent the diversity of the American experience. This book club meets on the third Tuesday of each month from 10am-12pm in the township “ballroom” and requires advanced registration. Contact the library for details.

Wednesday: 3 year old storytimes, 10:30am and 12:30pm. Again, advanced registration is required for storytimes, for the same reasons as above.

Intro to Microsoft Word 2007 Adult Computer Class, 11am-1pm. Registration and $5 class fee due in advance.

Thursday: 2 year old storytimes, 10:30am and 12:30pm. Again, advanced registration is required for storytimes.

Friday: Baby Lapsit, 9:30am, a “beginner storytime”/introduction to the
library for children who  will still be 11 months old or younger as of 9/12/11; advanced registration required.

Ones Storytime, 10:30am; a “beginner storytime”/introduction to the library for children who will still be between 12-23 months  as of 9/12/11; advanced registration required.

Intro to the Web Adult Computer Class, 11am-1pm. Registration and $5 class fee due in advance.

Saturday: Heritage Quest (Genealogy Database) Workshop; 10am-12pm. Registration and $5 class fee due in advance.

We also want to let you know that a new order of eBooks went in at the end of last week, so for any of our eBook readers out there, you’ll want to go to the Carbon Lehigh Downloadable Website and check out the new selection! Also, if you’re a parent of a child with an eReader or your child occasionally reads on your device… stay tuned later in the week for an exciting announcement! We hope you have a great week and enjoy this weather!
