SYRACUSE — The Syracuse Public Library’s young adult services department is introducing NOTE-ABLE Books that allow library patrons to write thoughts, create drawings inspired by the book or underline favorite passages. All notes and drawings must be kept G-rated.
NOTE-ABLE Books can be found in the Rosalyn Jones Room/young adult space under nonfiction. These books have “NOTE-ABLE” labeled on their spines. On the first page, there is also a label describing it as a “NOTE-ABLE BOOK” and encouraging readers to write in it.
Do not write in any library book that does not have the “NOTE-ABLE” designation.
Pick up a NOTE-ABLE Book today to see what other readers had to say about it. This program offers a new way to connect with literature and other readers.
The Perfect Time To Learn Mahjong
Don’t let the winter doldrums get you. Join mahjong at 1 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays in the downstairs meeting room. This is the perfect way to get out of the house and connect with others while playing a game of skill, strategy and luck. Don’t know how to play? Beginners are welcome to attend; other players will gladly show them how to play.
Board Games And Coloring
Young adults can unwind at the library during the week of Jan. 16. Come to YA Game Night from 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18, in the Rosalyn Jones Room. The group will play the “Cuphead” dice board game, based on the critically acclaimed video game and Netflix TV show.
From 4-5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19, they can return for Color & Chill. Pick a coloring book page and just begin coloring while enjoying snacks and relaxing music.
