Week 15: Spring Fever has Sprung!

Our Fresh, New Beginnings display offers books about starting over or starting anew!

Did you have a nice spring break everyone? More snowbirds are returning to Michigan from the warmer south. People are flocking back to work and school after a nice reprieve from the daily grind. And this past Saturday and Sunday were warm, partly cloudy, and gave good omens of the lovely weather to come! Who is ready for grilling, baseball, lawn games, and bonfires? I know am!

Last Couple Weeks

It has been business as usual around the Vicksburg District Library while families were off for spring break the last week and a half…

On March 27th, the Writer’s Roundtable met to share poems they wrote using lines from emails and letters. The next time they meet will be on Wednesday, April 24th @ 1:00pm. The prompt for the meeting is to write about a piece of jewelry that is important to you.

On April 4th, the Book Club for Adults met and discussed their latest selection, The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King. The discussion quickly turned to everything Sherlock Holmes and lively debates broke out about the Holmes cannon for both new and former fans! Our next meeting is Thursday, May 2nd @ 9:00am. We will be discussing biographies. See the website or call the Circulation Desk for more details.

This Week

Youth Librarian Stephanie is back on Wednesday the 10th with Bulldog Breaktime for our teens @ 2:45pm. Teens 6th through 12th grade are welcome to come play Nintendo Wii, board games, and Legos while enjoying a snack after school.
