The Fayette Normal Memorial Library has many events planned to help the community through the cold of winter. The After-School Program continues for the month of February. Grades K-1 come on Tuesdays and grades 2-5 come on Thursdays after school from 3:00 to 3:45 p.m. The February schedule for the remainder of the month is as follows: Feb. 17 & 19 Talent Show and Feb. 24 & 26 Play Day.
Story Time for children ages 2 to 5 not yet in Kindergarten is held every Monday from 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Children ages 2 and 3 are required to have an adult stay with them for the entire session. Every session includes a story and a craft.
Family Fun Night at the library will be on Friday, February 27, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. The featured movie will be the movie Boxtrolls. The library will provide the movie snacks and suggest for guests to bring something comfy to sit on if they desire.
The Thursdays at 7 p.m. Book Discussion Group will meet Thursday, February 26, 2015. The book that will be discussed is The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker. This is a love story set in Burma and spans the decades between the 1950’s and the present. When a successful New York lawyer suddenly disappears without a trace, neither his wife nor his daughter Julia has any idea where he might be until they find a love letter he wrote many years ago to a Burmese woman whom they have never heard of. Intent on solving the mystery and coming to terms with her father’s past, Julia decides to travel to the village where the woman lived. There she uncovers a tale of unimaginable hardship, resilience, and passion that will reaffirm the reader’s belief in the power of love to move mountains.
The library has added five new magazines to their collection including Self, Food Network, HGTV, Parents, and Guideposts. Stop in, check out the magazine collection, or find a good book to beat the cold of winter.
