It’s Showtime at the Library!

Be on the lookout for the Forsyth Public Library’s new Summer Library Program Guide that will be mailed to your house soon! All summer program descriptions will be included so that you will know just what to register for starting Tuesday, May 28. There are programs for all ages so everyone is likely to find something to interest them at the library this summer. Registration for programs will be available on Eventbrite this year so register from home or at the library.

VolunTeens Needed this Summer

Teens! Are you looking for volunteer hours? Would you like to work with kids and families in our Summer Reading Program? If you are going into grades 7-12, you can apply to become a Forsyth Public Library VolunTeen. Application forms are available at the library and at the Maroa-Forsyth Middle and High School offices. Don’t wait too long; limited spaces are available. For more information, contact Marissa White at 877-8174.

Story Time

The library will be taking a few weeks off from story times as we prepare for summer reading, but the sessions resume on Friday, June 7 at 10 a.m. Don’t forget, you can always check out a book bundle or story time-to-go kit and have your very own themed story time at home!

Baby Talk

Socialize with other parents and caregivers of children ages birth-3 on Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m. These informal parent/child sessions are led by trained Baby TALK instructors and provide opportunities to share parenting concerns and celebrate achievements while enjoying books, songs and fingerplays. Baby TALK is free, with no registration required.

Dirt Pudding Drop-In

Spring into our gardening-themed drop-in on Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. We’ll create delicious dirt pudding complete with gummy worms and decorate a biodegradable flower pot. You’ll even get seeds to plant in your pot once you get home. All ages are welcome, and no registration is necessary.

Block Printing Class

Adults are invited to learn the ancient art of block printing and gain the skills for a new hobby. On Saturday, May 4 at 10 a.m., instructor Jennifer Stout will guide you through the process of carving a stamp, then making prints with your design. No experience is necessary. Participants will leave with their artwork and reusable printer’s block. Please register in advance by calling the library at 877-8174.

Help Us Stamp Out Hunger

Bring non-perishable food items to the library from Monday, May 6 to Saturday, May 11 for the National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. The library is pleased to serve as a collection point for this annual event. Donations will be distributed to local food banks. Drop off your non-perishable food items at the library, and help us make a difference!

Tech Club

Ahh, summer! The sun is warm, flowers are blooming and we all want to be outdoors. Did you know your smart phone or computer could add to the fun? From nature apps that tell you what stars you see on the horizon to online versions of guides that identify birds and bugs, technology can be your summer friend. Join Instructor Val Bock from VCB Consulting on Tuesday, May 14 at 10 a.m. at the library.

Book Discussion Groups

The library’s two book discussion groups are open to adult readers each month. Food for Thought Book Group meets Thursday, May 9 at 6 p.m. May’s selection is The Library Book by Susan Orlean. Bookkeepers Book Group meets Friday, May 17 at 10 a.m. to discuss Memory Man by David Baldacci.
