It’s been a long winter hunkered indoors. If you’ve read through your supply of reading materials during the cold winter months, it’s time to replenish your home library at the North Webster Public Library’s Friends of the Library Mega Book Sale from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday, March 28-29, and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 30.
For three days, you can find hundreds of gently used books, movies, CDs, games, and puzzles for sale at low bargain prices. The sale will be held in the North Webster Community Center Banquet Hall. At these low prices, you can afford to stock up for next winter. All proceeds from the sale go to support the North Webster Community Public Library.
At 5 p.m. Thursday, March 28, come to Family Movie Time in the North Webster Public Library Meeting Room. They’ll be showing a PG-rated, 101-minute animated movie about an arcade game “bad guy” who longs to be a hero. When he sneaks into another arcade game to win a medal, he soon wrecks everything and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. A trouble-making “glitch” from a cart racing game just might be the one who teaches him what it means to be a real hero.
Bring the whole family, your favorite beverages, and munch on free popcorn while enjoying the show. Free tickets are available one hour prior to show time. Seating is limited, so come early to ensure your seat.
The Voyager Book Club meets 10 a.m. Monday, March 25, to discuss a book they’ve each read from the library’s Local History and Genealogy Center. This book club meets the fourth Monday of each month and allows participants to read any book they want within an assigned genre. Next month the group will be reading and sharing inspirational books.
If cookbooks are your preference, then Revolving Recipe Round-Up is the perfect place to share your favorite recipes and sample others’ culinary creations.
This group of dedicated foodies meets at 6 p.m. the fourth Tuesday of each month at the library. Each brings a dish to share and its recipes while the library furnishes table service for sampling and coffee. Every month focuses on a different type of food.
This Tuesday, March 26, the group will be bringing any kind of dish or food that’s green in color. It could be a salad, vegetable dish, appetizer, dessert, entrée, or whatever your imagination conjures up. Food and friends just seem to go together, so join in and build friendships while building up your recipe file.
