Save Money at the Library

Residents saved $682,907.72 by borrowing items from Forsyth Public Library in 2018. That number reflects how much it would cost had they bought the books, DVDs and other materials instead of checking them out from the library. Customers can receive a receipt with each checkout showing how much they have saved in that visit, the year to date and their total savings since the feature was implemented in April 2017. What will your savings be for 2019?

Melted Snowman Cookie Drop-in

Drop in any time between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 26 to decorate a yummy sugar cookie! We’ll be using royal white icing and a few other delicious ingredients to create a melted snowman. All ages are welcome, and no registration is required.

Winter STEAM

Explore science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics during the library’s winter STEAM events. We’ll make slime, magic milk, salt paintings and so much more! Former science teacher and current homeschool instructor Cheryl Higgs will lead kids ages 7 and up in exciting hands-on activities on Thursdays in February from 4-5 p.m. Space is limited so register soon by calling 877-8174, or register online at Eventbrite.com and search for winter STEAM.

Story Time

Join us on Friday mornings at 10 a.m. for Story Time! We’ll read stories, sing songs, play games and create a craft all centered around a theme. On January 18 we’ll dream and imagine with Unicorn Story Time. Then we’ll explore similarities and differences with What’s the Opposite on January 25. Be sure to come back on February 1 for Brush your Teeth! Story times are for ages 2-5, and siblings are welcome. No registration is necessary.

Baby Talk

Families with children ages birth to 3 are invited to Baby TALK sessions on Wednesdays throughout the year from 9:30-10:15 a.m. Sessions are informal and provide opportunities to share parenting concerns and achievements while enjoying books, songs and finger-plays.
