March events at Bradford Public Library

Spring is just around the corner now and our staff have been busy planning some exciting events for you. Here is what we have coming up in March…

Can Your Fines will be on Monday, March 4. Our fine forgiveness event happens the first Monday of each month allowing our Bradford cardholders the chance to waive their overdue fines by bringing in nonperishable food items. One dollar for each item donated will be waived. You can also have fees for one lost item waived at the same rate. Please see our staff for details. All food collected will be donated to the Bradford Resource Center and will stay in Bradford. Last year we collected nearly 500 items to help those in need.

We are having a Winter Reading Challenge through March 11. Patrons can simply check out books at BPL, read them, fill out a slip with name, phone number and title of the book you read, and turn it in at the library. Prizes will be awarded March 11 with a drawing of our top 5 readers in each age division. Winter Reading Challenge is open for all ages!

Preschool Story Hour will begin a new session on Wild Animals starting February 26. This 6 week session will end on April 2. Story Hour is open for children 3 years old to those not yet in kindergarten. Sign-ups are required. Please come in or call to register your child.

STEAM workshop for homeschoolers will be held on March 14 from 10:15 to 11:30. These hands on workshops are suitable for students in grades 1-8. Registration is not required.

We have a new book club at Bradford Public Library! Rush’s Rowdy Readers focuses on young adults and adults with learning challenges but all are welcome to join. This enthusiastic group will meet every Thursday evening from 5-6. Current selection is “James and the Giant Peach.”

One Book, May Communities is a reading initiative for Northern Miami Valley residents. This is the first year for this community read! We invite you to read “The One” by John Marrs and participate in the events sponsored by several local libraries. A list of scheduled events is available at Bradford Public Library. The kick-off event, An Intro to Genetic Geneology, is scheduled for Friday March 1, 5 pm at New Madison Public Library. No registration is required to attend. Please contact the library to receive a copy of the book.
