The Friends of the Libraries will host their monthly book discussion group on Tuesday November 15th, 2016 at 11:30am in the Smart Community Room. This month’s book is Songs of Willow Frostby Jamie Ford. All are welcome to participate; copies of the book are available at the Sidney Library’s circulation desk.
Sidney Memorial Public Library, Masonville Branch Library, and Sidney Center Branch Library will all be participating in Food For Fines the week of November 7th – 13th. If you have overdue fines, we will accept non-perishable items as ‘payment’ for these fines. These items are then donated to the local food banks, just in time for the holiday season.
In conjunction with our adult summer reading program “Exercise Your Body & Mind”, the Sidney Library is offering a Bingo game. Pick up the Bingo sheet in our library near the adult fiction books. Once you complete 5 activities that challenge you to try something new to improve your physical or mental health, return the sheet to the library and be entered to win a raffle.
Susan Moger, author of historical fiction novel Of Better Blood, will be at the Sidney Library on Sunday, June 12th 2016 from 1:30 – 3:00pm. This young adult novel is set in the 1920’s and addresses the racial purity movement of the time period when people with disabilities were ostracized.
We hope you will join us to hear from Ms. Moger! This event is free and open to the public.
Do you have an aging parent or elderly loved one, and have questions about things like wills, trusts, health care proxies, and end of life decisions? Join us for a free workshop hosted by Ms. Beth Westfall, an attorney. The workshop will be held on Thursday, May 19th 2016 at 6:30pm in our Smart Community Room. It is free to the public and questions are encouraged.
On Thursday, April 28th at 1:00pm, we will be showing the movie Goosebumps here at the Sidney Library. You can watch this PG-rated movie on the big screen in our Smart Community Room. The movie is described as follows: a teenager teams up with the daughter of young adult horror author, R.L. Stine, after the writer’s imaginary demons are set free on the town of Madison, Delaware.
This movie is free to the public. You can view the trailer below.
We have something new in the children’s section of the Sidney Library, just past the puppets. Check out our bookshelf of pamphlets, books, and other resources that all relate to parenting. With everything from baby food recipes to books about teenagers, we hope you find something helpful.
