Saturday, August 15th @ 10:00 AM
Hello all and welcome to a new school year! At TCPL we love our home school community and want to set aside a special time for you to come visit the library, connect with other home school families and see what all we can offer you during your school year.
Please join us on Saturday, August 15th at 10:00 AM for our first ever Homeschool Mingle! During this time you'll be able to drink coffee, eat snacks and chat with other home school parents. You'll also receive a folder with information on library resources that might be helpful in your educational pursuits. We will have a roundtable discussion about issues specific to home schooling. Did I mention door prizes? We'll have door prizes as well!
We look forward to seeing each one of you there! Please note that unfortunately will not be able to provide child care for this event. If you have older children who can play without assistance they are welcome to stay in the kid's room where they can color, play with Legos, get on the computer, etc. Younger children (babies-5 years old) should have an adult or a responsible older sibling with them. I realize that this may be an inconvenience, but please keep this in mind if you are planning to attend.
For those who aren't able to make it that day, you're still welcome to come by the library and pick up your resource folder. They will be available at the front desk any time after Saturday, August 15th.
If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact Emily at (270) 465-2562 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coming this September at the Taylor County Public Library, we'll be featuring a wilderness theme for our teens in honor of National Wilderness Month. Among the scheduled activities is the September Teen Book Club choice, Woods Runner by the popular Gary Paulsen. The book, set in the colonial era, tells of 13-year-old Samuel's struggle with war with the British, attacks from Native Americans, and separation from his family.
The Teen Book Club will meet Friday, September 11, 2015, at 1:30 PM in the TCPL community room. Please sign up beforehand at the front desk or e-mail email@example.com. 15 spots are available for ages 13-18.
Non-Fiction Round Table
Led by Jamie Collins
Are you ready to explore a travelogue, history, food, biography, memoir or how-to book? Come share your thoughts with you new non-fictional friends! Jamie has chosen the theme for each month and you get to choose the book! This group will meet the first Monday of the month at 5pm.
September: U.S. Presidents
December: World Religions
Blurb from our volunteer who will be leading this fun group:
Hello Fellow Bookworms! My name is Jamie Collins. I am a transplant from Oregon by way of an RV road trip and I decided Kentucky would be home when I met my husband, Stephen. We have two beautiful girls who keep us on our toes. During the day you can find me on Main Street at Tuckers Diamonds and Gold. I am passionate about books and I am delighted if I can find interesting "geeky" tidbits of trivia to lock away for future reference. Most of all I love meeting new people and having an opportunity to connect, if even for a for short time, in our busy lives.
A Teen Meet-N-Greet is scheduled for Monday, August 24, from 4:00-6:00 PM at TCPL. Teens ages 13-18 are encouraged to come by for food, games, door prizes, and to learn about the many upcoming programs being offered at the library. It will also be a time to meet the recently hired Young Adult Librarian, Kimberly Burton.
