My First Book Club

Children grades 2nd thru 5th and their parents are invited to join us once a month for a beginning level book club. We read a new book every month. Call the library to ask if we still have copies of this month’s book.
Young Adult Programming
Tuesday, January 27 @ 4:00PM
Are you interested in learning the basics of understanding and writing code in Blocky, Python, and others? Stop in and check out the fun. We are using www.code.org tutorials because we’re learning too.
Adult Lunch and Learn Knitting & Crocheting
Wednesday, January 28 @ 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Bring your brown bag lunch, needles and yarn to the Gilmer County Library. Already know how to knit, come for the fun! If you are unable to attend a meeting, that’s ok. You don’t have to be at every class. If knitting, bring #8 needles and yarn of any color. If crocheting, bring G or H hooks and Peaches & Cream cotton yarn of any color.
Friday, January 30 @ 2:00 PM
We will be teaching the basics of how to get on the Internet, search for and navigate websites, and signing up for an email account. Limited spots available. Registration is recommended
The Friends of the Library Bookshelf
Winter is the perfect time to take up a new indoor hobby, and we have plenty of inspiration in our great collection of needlework books featured in the Bookshelf this week. You’ll find everything from machine embroidery to needlepoint in these beautiful books. Many are pretty enough to show off on your coffee table.
Take a look at the “last chance” cart where our inventory of half-priced books is refreshed weekly. You can put your payment for these books in the donations box if the Bookshelf is closed.
Bookshelf hours are from 10:30 AM-5:00 PM on weekdays and from 12:00 PM-2:00 PM on Saturdays.
