MARCH 28, 2006

Winter is almost over and spring is right around the corner. This weekend we will be turning our clocks ahead one hour and the days will become a little longer. With longer and warmer days comes more energy to get out and about. The best way to burn some of that energy is by coming into the library for some great programs.

This Tuesday, April 4 at 7pm the library will be hosting a nature program called Bird Prowl. Johneta Wilson from Wild Thing Rehabilitation Center will visit the library to teach all family members about the wonderful life of birds. Ms. Wilson will talk about her role as a bird naturalist and how she works with birds to ensure their survival in the wild. She will also bring in some of her close bird friends for everyone to meet. Registration is required for this program, as seating is limited. Please call the library at 593-3410 for details.

On Thursday, April 6 at 7pm the library will be having a book discussion on Dan Brown’s best selling book The Da Vinci Code. Participants are asked to read the book before attending in order to make the evening interesting for everyone.  Those interested in attending should register for the discussion by calling the library at 593-3410.

The Wellsville Art Association will host its annual Seven County Art Show in the library Exhibition Room from March 30 through April 21. On Thursday, April 6 at 7pm the Art Association will hold a reception for the public to view the show and meet some of the artists. Registration is not required for the reception.

Computer classes will be held at the library on Monday, April 10 and Monday, April 17. Both classes start at 7pm.

The April 10th class will focus on finding books and materials on the library’s web catalog. The April 17th class will deal with building document structures from scratch using Microsoft software. Patrons are asked to register for these classes by calling the library at 593-3410.
