Adult writers meet on Tuesday, March 1 at 10:30 a.m. Visitors are always welcome to come and see how memoirs are written in this group, organizers say.

The newest fairy tale now in the children’s library is “Rooster Wore Skinny Jeans” by Jessie Miller. It is described as “a hilarious tale of self-acceptance, resilience and the joy of standing out”. After reading the story, children are encouraged to use the flannel board to dress the animals.

A selection of children’s fairy tale stories are already on display, but soon there will be an exhibition of children’s narrative non-fiction or “picture science”. For adults in March there will be an exhibit for Women’s History Month.

There will also be a financial Q&A program on Thursday, March 24.

The Korean program for the month of March will take place on Tuesday, March 15 and will be held at 11:30 am. Battery-powered cars will be explained during the program, and families who attend will receive a battery-themed Lego car kit to take home. residence.

More information on each of these programs will be in future press releases.

The Commercial Library tries to order non-fiction books on a variety of topics that might be of interest to patrons in that area. One source that was recently used to find 15 new titles was a Rotary Club publication. These topics range from preventing the next pandemic to understanding the importance of water, building a better world for all, the student debt trap, and the future of education and schools. There are too many to list here, but a flyer listing all 15 will be posted at the library.

Upcoming programs at the library include the following:

•Saturday 26 February at noon – drive-in cinema in the auditorium.

•Tuesday 1 March, at 10.30 am, Writers for adults.
