Libraries feed soul and mind

The groundhog saw his shadow and the last weeks of winter drag on. What do people do to when the winds blow and outdoor activities are put on hold?
They go to their community library.
The children's librarians are constantly coming up with interesting and fun activities for all ages. Story hours are available for pre-school children.
For the older children and adults, at the Niles District Library, this Saturday, Feb. 18, at 9:30 a.m. the Chess Club will meet. Everyone is welcome. More sessions are March 4 and 18.
Book Bingo continues until Tuesday, Feb. 28. If you haven't already gotten one, get your bingo sheet and start reading. There are plenty of prizes … just for reading.
Preschool storytime begins on Wednesday, Feb. 22, and “we'll” be learning our A B C's. Storytime is at 9:30 a.m., at 10:30 a.m., or at 1:30 p.m. Come and bring a friend.
In March, look for froggy stories and crafts. Wear a wild hat every Wednesday in March and maybe win a prize.
March is also Michigan Reads: One State, One pre-school book. The winner is Bed Hogs, by Kelly Di Pucchio.
A Garden party on March 18 will really make you feel like spring is here. A class will teach children how to arrange flowers.
Call the children's librarian, Darlene Jackson, or Nancy Studebaker, director, at Niles District Library for details at 683-8545.
