The month of February brings hearts to mind, so the teens will be playing the card game of “Hearts” during Teen Time at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20, in the Library Meeting Room. Don’t know how to play? No problem! We’ll teach you how. Hearts is easy to learn and fun to play. The more teens that come, the more fun it will be, so bring your friends if they’re in grades 6-12. Snacks will be included, too!
The winter session of Preschool Story Time is underway every Wednesday morning at 10:30 and 11:30 until April 9. It’s not too late to sign your child up. Just stop by the Youth Services Desk or call 574-834-7122 ext. 202.
Tax season is also well underway. The library has state and federal tax forms and instructional publications to help you in filing your taxes. You can also use one of the library’s computers if you prefer to file your taxes electronically. Links are also available on the library’s website www.nweb.lib.in.us where you can download state and federal tax forms and publications from home. Links for filing your state and federal taxes electronically are available as well. You don’t even need a library card to pick up tax forms, use our computers, or access the links on our website.
If you want to get your mind off taxes, the library has a full day of activities on Monday, Feb. 17, to help you forget the tax man for a while. Start off the day at 10 a.m. with Writer’s Corner. The meeting is comprised of a group of people who like to write will be sharing the essays they’ve written about E.S.P. It promises to be a fun and interesting session. Then at 5:30 p.m. R.E.A.D. (Read, Eat And Discuss) Book Club will enjoy refreshments while discussing the book Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. At the same time, the Lose It @ The Library group will forgo the refreshments and encourage one another toward their weight loss goals as they walk the corridors of the North Webster Community Center together.
Looking for something to do during these cold winter months? The Library’s Local History and Genealogy Center is in need of volunteers to assist with setting up an obituary database that, when completed, will benefit people researching their family history. Volunteers must have basic computer skills and, preferably, be familiar with Microsoft Excel or willing to learn. If you can spare a couple of hours a week and enjoy computer work, contact LH&GC Director Beth Smith at 574-834-7122 for details.
