March Madness and More at the APL

Come in to the Arcanum Public Library for some March Madness – Library Style. A list of 64 popular books has been put together, and patrons can participate in the voting each week by filling out a ballot available at the library. Voting will continue until there is a winning title.

The Arcanum Public Library, along with several other libraries in the area, is participating in the reading initiative One Book, Many Communities. The book, The One, by John Marrs has been chosen as the selection for 2019. There will be plenty of programs scheduled in the upcoming months based on the book, held at various locations. At the Arcanum location, there will be a book discussion held on March 28 at 6:30 and a program on DNA testing and ethics in April. Come on in to get a copy of the book, and a schedule of events.

The third “Brew Review” will be held on Thursday, March 28 at 6:30. David Nilsen, a beer writer and educator, will be presenting “Porters and Stouts” at this popular program. Patrons are asked to call the library to register in advance for this event.

There are weekly children’s programs at the library. StoryTime for preschoolers is held on Tuesdays at 10:00. Children listen to stories, sing songs, make a craft, and more. Kids in grade school can come to SPARK after school on Tuesdays from 3:45 – 4:45 to play games, meet with friends, and learn something new.

An adult coloring session on will be held on Tuesday, March 12 at 4:00. Come in to enjoy a relaxing afternoon of coloring with other adults. No registration is required.
