Tech Club

Technology, social media and digital news make it easy to find out what is going on in the world. But, does it also blur the line between truth and fiction? The April meeting of Forsyth Public Library’s Tech Club will focus on “considering the source” of the information we consume and developing strategies for determining the trustworthiness of what we see and hear. Join instructor Val Bock on Tuesday, April 10 at 10 a.m. for “Is This For Real? How to be a Truth Warrior in the ‘Fake News’ Era.”

Magazine & Used Materials Sale

Forsyth Public Library’s 2018 Magazine & Used Materials Sale will be held in the library’s conference room on Friday April 13 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and Saturday, April 14 (10 a.m. to noon). Sale items will include DVDs (50¢ each), magazines (10¢ each) and books (25¢ each). These items have been withdrawn from the library’s collection for reasons of datedness, condition or lack of circulation. Proceeds from the sale go to the Village of Forsyth’s general fund.

Book Discussion Group

Food for Thought Book Club will discuss Graeme C. Simsion’s The Rosie Project, on Thursday, April 12 at 6 p.m. This romantic comedy features the oddly charming, socially challenged genetics professor, Don, as he seeks true love. Entertainment Weekly describes this book as “bursting with warmth, emotional depth, and … humor.”

Story Time

Remember that the library is closed on Friday, March 30, so there is no story time that day. Come back on Friday, April 6 for Under My Umbrella story time. April 13 will be Pajama Pizazz, so wear your favorite PJs and get ready to snuggle up and listen to some bedtime stories! Story times are held at 10 a.m. each Friday through the end of April and are geared toward ages 3-5. Siblings are welcome, and no registration is necessary.

Baby TALK

Baby TALK meets every Wednesday morning from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. at the library. No registration is necessary. Baby TALK is presented by trained instructors and designed for children ages birth to 3. Each session includes time to address children’s achievements and challenges in a supportive forum. Your young child will have fun playing, singing, listening and dancing at Baby TALK. Join us!
