April events at Bradford Public Library

Our calendar at Bradford Public Library fills up as the days grow longer and temperatures rise! Here’s what we have planned in April….

No STEAM workshop until September….plan to join us later this month at our Summer Reading Kickoff!

A new session of Story Hour will begin April 16. Story Hour is open for any child age 3 to those not yet in Kindergarten. Registration is required. Sign-up sheet is available now in the library. Join us for stories, songs, crafts, games and activities all geared to help your young ones be prepared for Kindergarten! This six week session will be about oceans and things under the sea.

Hannah Pennigton will return on April 18 at 6:30 with an Essential Oils Make and Take to get you ready for summer. Participants will make an After Sun Spray, Bug Off Spray, Boo Boo Spray and a Bug Bite Roller…all in beautiful glass bottles! Cost of workshop is $25, class size limited to 12. Registration is required and payment will hold your spot! Hannah has a wealth of knowledge concerning essential oils and their many benefits. Bring your questions to this informative and fun night!

Bradford Public Library will be closed Saturday, April 20th and Monday, April 22nd so staff can celebrate Easter with family and friends.

Our annual Book sale and Fine Free Week will be held April 23 through 26. We have plenty of books in all genres to choose from this year…something for everyone! In addition to books we have music CDs and even some holiday decorations and props from past programs. Everything is priced to sell. Friday will be $1.00 a bag day. Anything that will fit in a brown grocery bag for just $1.00! Proceeds from our book sale will benefit our programs throughout the year. We will have our fine free week the same week. Bradford cardholders can have overdue fines waived as well as fees for one lost item waived. You must come in to the library to take advantage of this awesome opportunity to “Wipe the slate clean for 2019!”

Bradford Public Library and Bradford Schools will join forces again to offer a Summer Reading Kickoff event on Thursday, April 25 from 5:30-7:30 at Bradford Schools. Food, games, activities and crafts will be offered all for free.
