The Fayette Library has many activities planned during the month of February to help you through the Winter Blues and Blahs. For adults, the library is offering a cross stitch class by Barbara Wixom on Tuesday, February 18 at 6:30. This will be a basic class with a variety of patterns to choose from with all supplies being provided. If you are interested, please call the library to sign-up and for cost of the class.
The library will offer another Family Fun night Friday, February 28 from 7:00-8:30. Come for a fun night of Family Bingo complete with prizes and refreshments.
Activities are planned for the children. The After School Program for Grades Kindergarten through First Grade will be held on Tuesdays and for Grades 2-5 on Thursdays. Both sessions are from 3:00-3:45. Planned activities include February 4 & 6 Movie, February 11 & 13 Crafts, February 18 Talent Show, February 20 Trivia, and February 25 & 27 Play Day. For the younger children ages 2-5 (not yet in kindergarten), Story Time is offered every Monday from 6:30-7:00. The library requires children ages 2 and 3 to have an adult stay with them for the Story Time. Each session features a different story and craft.
The Book Discussion club will be held on Thursday, February 27 at 7:00 p.m. The book featured this month is The All-Girl Filling Station Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg. The book is about Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama who has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to relaxing and perhaps traveling with her husband Earle. The only thing left to contend with is her overbearing mother. One day Sookie discovers a secret about her mother’s past that knocks her for a loop and suddenly calls into question everything she ever thought she knew about herself, her family, and her future. Sookie begins a search for answers that takes her back in time to the 1940s where a woman named Fritzi takes on the job of running her family’s filling station. As Sookie learns about the adventures of the girls at the All-American Girl Filling Station, she finds herself inspired for her own life.
The library would like to thank Darlene Stiles, Jerry Gonzalez, and Sue Schaffner for their donations to the library.
Save the date!!! On March 15, the library is offering a “Bring Your Child to the Library Day” with special activities planned. On March 18, Cathy Leininger will host a Pampered Chef party. Registration is $5.00 and includes a Spring/Summer cookbook, food sampling, and prizes. More information will be provided in the March newsletter.
With the tremendous amount of snow we have seen this winter, the library has established the following guidelines for patrons in snowy weather. The Library will plan to remain open if at all possible during periods of inclement weather. When there is a Level 3 Snow Emergency for Fulton County, the library may need to close due to the weather conditions. All fines will be forgiven for the day of the closure. If you are wondering if the library is open, please call the library first before coming. Closing information will also be announced on Archbold Radio station 96.1 WMTR, Channel 13, and Channel 11.
