Well, spring is finally here. I've seen flocks of geese flying overhead and robins hopping on the lawn. One day a lady brought in a small flower she had picked and laid it on the counter and said, "It's spring." So spring has sprung.
April is just around the corner and there are several exciting programs at the library you won't want to miss.
The Easter Bunny will be at the library on Thursday, April 1 from 6:30 -- 7:30 p.m. Each child will receive an Easter egg with a surprise in it and parents don't forget those cameras. All ages are welcome.
The Cherokee Public Library will be celebrating National Library Week April 11 -- 17. This is an annual celebration that highlights the value of all types of libraries and librarians. The youth department will have guest readers from the community share a story or two with you Monday through
Thursday at 3:45 p.m. The stories will be geared more for the youth but all ages are welcome. Each young person who visits the library during the week will be able to select a prize from the free box. So mark your calendars stop in at the Cherokee Public Library.
The Library will also have their regular programs during April.
Story time for pre-schoolers will be every Tuesday from 10:30 to 11 a.m. This is for Children three to five years of age.
Youth In Action Students, 5th to 6th graders, will meet April 8 and April 22 from 3:45 to 4:45 p.m. It looks like the rogue painting in the art exhibit will be exposed on April 8 due to some thorough and clever detective work.
The After School Bunch, k-4th graders, will meet Tuesday, April 13 and April 27 at 3:45 p.m.
Terrific Toddlers and their parents will meet Saturday, April 10 from 10:30 to 11 a.m. This program is for parents and their one to three year old children.
Easter is the first weekend in April. I'd like to share a short poem I found at our library.
If Easter Eggs Would Hatch
By Douglas Malloch
I wish that Easter eggs could be like eggs of other seasons;
I wish that they hatched something, too.
For --- well, for lots of reasons.
The eggs you get the usual way are always brown and white ones.
The eggs you find on Easter Day are always gay and bright ones.
So they might hatch a purple hen, a rooster like a bluebird,
And all the patterns and designs might well produce a new bird.
An Easter egg might even hold a little silver bunny!
If Easter eggs would only hatch,
My wouldn't that be funny!
Have a Happy Easter and pick up an April Newsletter at the Library.
