There is something for everybody at the Wilmington Public Library!
As one of our most valuable local resources, the Wilmington Public Library has honed its programs and events to serve residents of all ages and interests, at a very reasonable cost – FREE!
Library Staffer, Pam Ade, visited our WALH show recently to share just the highlights of what the Library has planned in the near future.
- Plan to be part of the Easter Egg Hunt on April 8th. These rain or shine festivities start at 9 am and go until 11:30. The Egg Hunt starts at 10:45 with breakfast beforehand. There will also be crafts, face painting, pictures with the Easter Bunny plus tours of a fire truck and police car tours. Bunny bags will be handed out, or you can bring your own basket.
- National Library Week kicks off April 9-15 with Fine Forgiveness all week long. What a perfect chance to get those nagging fines waived! There will also be a Special Celebrity Story Time featuring readings by local celebs, Monday, April 10 @ 6:30 pm at The Main Library. Local celebrities will be sharing some of their favorite children’s books. Celebrity readers will also be at all regular story times this week, April 11-13. Also there will be a variety of programs at the Clinton Massie Branch as well.
Don’t forget about all the great club opportunities offered at either of Library branches like; The Lego Club, Middle School Book Club, Post Apocalyptic Knitting Club, Page Turners Club, Teen Book Club, Chapter Kids, Daytime Book Clubs plus various storytimes for all ages. Offerings vary by branch so be sure to check out the details on the website, Wilmington.lib.oh.us, regularly.
Special enrichment activities are scheduled for every age and interest like Photography Workshop on April 28th and an American Girl Tea on May 13th. Also all you book collectors will love attending the quarterly book sales where you can purchase treasured reading at a bargain price. And if your shelves are bulging with books, the Library welcomes donations every day.
In need of meeting space? Your library is a great place to hold meetings with just the completion of a simple on-line form.
And with Summer rapidly approaching, the Library offers a great school age reading program to keep those skills sharp and minds engaged over the break. This year’s 8- week theme is, Build a Better World. The schedule includes entertaining programming and a visit from Ronald McDonald. Check the Libray’s website for registration information or just stop by. There’s a whole lot of fun going on!
