Come Help Us Celebrate National Library Week

   National Library Week is being celebrated at the McCook City Library this week. We have several things going on. We are having a book drawing for young and old. Also today is National Caramel Corn today, so we are celebrating with a free sample. On Friday, we will enjoy licorice for National Licorice Day. We are asking you to fill out a heart and tell us “Why I Love My Library” to display on our bulletin board.

With Easter fast approaching, we are having a coloring contest. You just need to pick up a coloring page for your age and either color it here at the Library or take it home and bring it back. Pages need to be turned in by Wednesday, April 17. We will want to get prizes to you before Easter.

April is National Poetry Month and we encourage to you check out some poetry books. We have them on the adult and kid’s side. Poetry comes in all ways: serious, funny, sports, animals, dreams, people, occasions and places. You could even write a poem for us and we will display it and let others enjoy it. (you don’t have to put your name on it)

Our 1,000 books before Kindergarten group will have their annual celebration on Tuesday, April 30 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. to enjoy some stories, eat some goodies and find out who has been reading a lot.  Watch for your invitations is the mail. RSVP’s will be due by Friday, April 26. Can’t wait to see all the readers and we are planning on some very special readers to read to us.

Later this month we will be busy with different activities for Children’s Book Week (April 29-May 3). Monday will be come and get an egg to celebrate Mother Goose stories; Wednesday is “Make a May Basket ” from 3-4 p.m.; Thursday is Pirate stories and activities from 4-5 p.m. and Friday, come in and check out a book and receive a pirate surprise.  It would be a great time to get your children their Library Card (need to be 7 years of age).
