The library will be closed on Sunday April 20. We will reopen at 9:30am on Monday April 21.
Even though the physical library is closed, our eBooks and eAudiobooks are always available for check-out on OverDrive. You can also put materials on hold for pick up at the library using our online catalog.
Have a wonderful weekend!
If you’ve stopped by the library recently, you might have noticed the large, colorful exhibits in the lobby and ellipse. They’re part of the traveling exhibition “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War” that we’re hosting through June 13, 2014. Spring Lake District Library was one of only fifty institutions across the US chosen to host this great exhibition!
The exhibit looks at how President Lincoln used the Constitution to confront three intertwined crises of the Civil War: the secession of Southern states, slavery, and wartime civil liberties. The National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office organized the exhibit with the help of a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
To complement the Lincoln exhibit, we’ll also be hosting a variety of Lincoln-themed programs including the following:
April 13-19 is National Library Week. The theme of this year’s National Library Week is Lives Change @ Your Library. It doesn’t matter who you are, what age you are, or what you do, the library welcomes you and wants to help you achieve your dreams.
This long winter is officially behind us, and we’re looking ahead to Spring Break! We have a great lineup of programs scheduled during Spring Break as well as our reading club for kids in preschool through Grade 8 which is from April 7 – 19. Signups for the reading club begin on Monday March 31. Kids will read to earn prizes such as books, LEGO kits, movie passes, a Frozen DVD, and a 2014 Guinness Book of World Records!
Summer Reading is coming up fast, and the Youth Services department is looking for teen volunteers to help make Summer Reading 2014, Fizz, Boom, Read!, the best yet! We have a great array of programs and fun times planned, and we need some great teens to help us carry them out.
Teens will be able to choose from an assortment of tasks like helping children perform science experience, collecting reading logs and handing out prizes, and helping to prepare for storytimes or crafts or science programs. We’ll be asking our volunteers to sign up for at least three time slots to volunteer during the summer so they’ll be able to schedule times around other commitments like sports, jobs, or family vacations.
