Yachats Public Library
By Janet Rackleff
First off, a HUGE thank you to all the friends and volunteers who helped out with last week's Book Sale and made the event a rousing success. We appreciate the donations from all of you to support the book sale, and then your generosity in buying more books!
In April we will be focusing on Earth day in the Children's Room of the library. We received a grant from Amaterra, Inc. and have purchased a wide selection of ecology, environment and conservation books for the kid’s room. The books will be displayed throughout the back rooms all month, come take a look and check out your favorites.
For Earth Day again through the Amaterra, Inc. grant, we will offer two events, a silk screened flag arts project for the afterschool kids with a salmon restoration theme with local graphic artist Mike Guerriero, and a puppet show.
The Puppet Show will be presented on April 17 at 10:30 am in the library. Penny's Puppets will put on a show entitledThree Cheers for Trees, Penny describes the show, "Let’s Celebrate Trees with this sing along show. Trees are everywhere we go but do you really know much about them. Let’s hear what they have to say in this fun environmental puppet show" The show is appropriate for kids (and kids at heart) ages 2 and up.
SEE YOU AT THE LIBRARY
See you at the library and March Book Sale!
The Yachats Library has joined other libraries around the state in a new program called the Oregon Library Passport Program. This program will allow Yachats library cardholders to have access, without charge, to other participating libraries across the state. Newport, Waldport and Florence are part of this program. Materials borrowed from participating libraries must be returned to that library. Learn more at www.librariesoforegon.org/passport or stop by the library for more information.
We are pleased to announce we again have 4 functioning patron computers! The two new ones are running Window 8. We know many of you will be happy to hear that all computers have WORD installed. The new printer/copier also has scanning capabilities, another function patrons have been requesting. The touch screens on the Windows 8 computers are fun to use. Come give it a try! We will be glad to help you if you are new to touch screens.
