News and notes from the Library

Cassidy Duck New Children’s Coordinator

If you see Cassidy, current children’s department director at Mack Memorial, be sure to congratulate her. She is now the Children’s Coordinator and will be providing programming for all branches.

Pick Up a Hobby at Your Library

As the busy school year approaches, we’d just like to remind you that WPLibraries is a great place to learn a new hobby. We have ukuleles in Minden along with instructional materials. We also have craft kits like metal jewelry stamping and knitting looms. Take some “me time” and explore new avenues at WPLibraries today.

That’s A Wrap on Springhill Adult SRP.

The adult SRP group at Mack Memorial branch painted clay pots and rocks to make creative flower arrangements. All through summer, they participated in book bingo, with the goal to get as many marks on their bingo boards while reading new genres, titles and authors.

Loaded Cookies.

Mack Memorial recently held their cookie decorating event. Kids let their imaginations run wild and created cookies worthy of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.

We’re Temporarily Pausing Our VHS to DVD Service

In order to catch up with this popular service, we are temporarily halting VHS to DVD services while we get through current tapes. We’ll let you know as soon as we’re ready to resume submissions.

Outdoor Seating To Be Installed at Small Branches

Cotton Valley will soon have a canopy installed and outdoor seating is coming to the small branches soon.

Genealogy Club Returns

Mark your calendars. The Genealogy Club at Minden returns SEP 9 from 1-2 P.M. Guest speaker will be Cindy Walker, who will share about how she uses the Family Tree Notebook system.

Multi-Purpose Room Progress

The paint in the newly designated multi-purpose room is going up. What’s going into the multi-purpose room? Stay tuned to find out.

Happy Trails for Summer Reading at Mack Memorial

Springhill ended its fun and successful summer reading program with a pizza party and a bounce house.

WPLibraries Help Pack The Bus

We were happy for the opportunity to pack and distribute Webster Parish Library bags full of free school supplies to local students. Administrative Assistant, Ginger Ebarb and Community Liaison, Kim Sentell, represented us well.
