What’s Happening in April at Centerville Library

Happy springtime, everyone! This month is jam-packed with fun educational activities for the whole family, so check this out:

April 1-6

Wahoo, its spring break! Because of the holiday, we will have no homeschool or storytime meetings on the 1st.  We will, however, be gearing up the next day for bedtime stories, which takes place on the 2nd at 6:30 PM. The stories are for all ages, and don’t forget to wear your PJ’s! Our storytimes on the 3rd will be about fire trucks, and that’s because (are you ready for this?)… the Centerville Fire Dept. is coming out on the 4th at 10:30 AM! The firemen will be showing us their special fireproof gear and all the parts of their truck. It’s going to be a great time for all ages!

April 8-13

imagesSchool is back in session, and so are our regular Monday activities – teen homeschool session at 2 PM and 3-6 grade homeschool along with our all-ages storytime at 3 PM on the 8th.  It’s also Moe’s week! That’s right folks, Moe’s of Warner Robins is giving back 10% of all their proceeds to the Houston County Libraries during the week of April 9-15! All you have to do is tell them you’re there to eat for the public library. You can even drop in to your library branch and pick up valuable kid’s coupons to help you save money! Also, our storytime theme for this week is HUGE dinosaurs, so you’ll definitely want to bring your little ones out on the 10th and 11th. We will also be holding an exciting Pop Culture Bingo Night full of fun about some of your favorite fiction works, such as Captain Underpants and Diary of a Wimpy Kid! The program will take place on April 11th @ 6 PM and is appropriate for 3-6 graders. Also, Lincoln the Lab from P.A.W.S will be here on the 12th from 3:45-5:45 PM! The program is for kids who can read independently, and advanced registration is required.
