January Events at Bradford Public Library

The New Year has finally arrived and the staff at BPL are busy planning some great events for the coming year. Please visit our website at, like us on FaceBook, call the staff at 937-448-2612 or just stop by and see us to find out more about these upcoming events.

Ready to get in shape in the New Year? Cardio Drumming will be offered on Monday evenings from 7-8:00 PM and Wednesday mornings from 9-10:00. The classes are free, you supply your own equipment. A yoga stability ball, a large garden tub and a pair of drumsticks are all you need! Total cost can be less than $30 for all three items. You can even substitute a laundry basket and cut down a dowel rod to save on cost. Sign-ups are available now. Current classes will run through February.

Our Preschool Story Hour is back for a six week session. Children who are at least three years old but have not started Kindergarten are able to participate. Parents and grandparents are encouraged to stay and help with our engaging hands-on activities, songs, crafts, games and of course, lots of stories! Children must be signed up in advance, space is limited to 12 children per session. If you miss this six week session, you can always sign up for the next one! Our Story Hour is taught by Mrs. Candice Skinner.

Our American Girl Party will be held on Saturday, January 19 from 10:30-noon. Sign-ups are full for this special day for our young ladies and their dolls! Stop by before then to see some of the dolls and doll furniture we have on display! If you are signed up, please be at the library before 10:30 so we can start on time. Bring along your favorite doll…you might even want to dress alike for your photo booth picture! Games, snacks, crafts and door prizes will make this a day your young lady will not soon forget. There will be no walk-ins the day of the event since supplies have been purchased already. We appreciate your cooperation with this.

Our telescope is available to check out, please see our staff for more information about this exciting opportunity for Bradford Cardholders! Crisp winter evenings can allow for some amazing star gazing! Bradford Public Library has also acquired an IMac computer and HP inkjet printer with a grant from the Miami County Foundation in 2017. This powerful computer can be used by our adult patrons any time. Apple computers are known for their easy to use photo and video editing. Come in to see how this can help with your videos and pictures for special events such as weddings and graduations parties. New laptop computers will be available soon for adult patron use throughout the library thanks to a grant from the Miami County Foundation in 2018. We also have six newer Chromebooks for student use.
