What’s happening at Carnegie Library?


By Sarah Nichols - Carnegie Public Library



September 15 – October 15 is National Hispanic Heritage Month. Stop by the library in Washington Court House to check out cookbooks, literature, DVDs, and more, highlighting Hispanic cultures of the world, their heritage, and celebrating the contributions they have made to the United States.

Also, September is Library Card Sign-up Month! Libraries support early literacy with story times and plenty of picture books, supplement a student’s education with databases and other research materials, and provide a source of lifelong learning and enjoyment with books, music, and movies for all ages and interests. From home, after school, and on the weekends, you and your student have access to a world of possibilities with a library card. Tell your neighbors, tell your friends: A library card is the smartest card!

The Ohio Digital Library is open 24 hours and day, seven days a week! You can borrow free eBooks and audiobooks for your Kindle, NOOK, iPad, iPhone, Android or other device with just your library card! Need help? Come to one of our e-Book Drop-in sessions! Bring your device and library card, we will get you started! Sessions are from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m., on Wednesdays through September and October.

Are you eager to chat with other literature lovers? On Friday, Sept. 24 at 4 p.m., join the Book Club in a discussion about Dark Places by Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl. Dark indeed, this warped crime thriller throws clever twists your way and will certainly keep you up at night, eager to see what happens next. Reserve your copy today and mark your calendar!

For kids: As always, bring your little ones to the library’s weekly storytimes for books, stories, crafts, and play! Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m., is Preschool Storytime for children 4 – 6 years old and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m., is Books & Blocks for children 1 – 3 years old. Siblings are welcome at either session.

In Jeffersonville: Ages 8- 18, an Altered Clipboard Workshop will be held at the Jeffersonville Branch on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 4 p.m. Attendees will be able to create a clipboard of their very own design. Registration required due to limited quantity of clipboards. Every Tuesday at 11 a.m., come listen to stories, play instruments, create crafts, socialize with other little friends at Toddler Time. Each week is a new theme!
