Get Set for March and April at the LPL with New Features in Our Program Guide
Our program-planning people worked hard to put together a great schedule of events for March and April.
Our new program guide for these two months has several new changes to make it easier for you to find what might interest you.
That's the subject for this week's community library column for the Eagle News Online and Star Review.
If you didn't read the article there, you can find it below:
Get ready to spring into two big months at the Liverpool Public Library.
Our librarians have set up plenty of exciting programs for all ages of library-goers for March and April.
You’ll find them in our new, expanded-to-eight-pages Program Guide available now in the library and via our website at lpl.org/programguide.
A good look at the guide will reveal new wrinkles to the familiar format that we hope will make it easier to find a good fit for your specific interests. The events are still broken into lists earmarked for adults, children, tweens and teens. Now you’ll also find more sub-categories, such as gaming, get creative, health and wellness, history and geneaology, in the community, and nature and science that describe more specifically what you’ll experience at the events below the heading.
There are also more photographs that illustrate past editions of programs.
And look for the ^ next to an event. That alert means you’ll find an item in our Library of Things that connects to the program’s theme or materials. For example, if you notice our new Songwriting @ LPL event on Saturday, March 5 and April 16 with the ^, you can look on the Library of Things carousel in the library or search on the online catalog to discover that you can check out a ukulele or banjo to use in the songwriting process.
Get Ready for First Book Sale of 2022
On the back page of the Program Guide you’ll see that the first weekend of March will include our first Fill-a-Bag Sale for 2022.
The popular event will return to the Carman Community Room from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 6.
Available for purchase will be donated and culled-from-our collections books, CDs and DVDs, for adults and children. They will be priced at $5 for all you can fit in a provided bag, or $20 for five filled bags.
As an added attraction, there also will be board games for sale, at $5 each or five for $20, as well as LPL canvas bags for $5 each.
We’ll ask that you follow instructions of LPL staffers regarding capacity of the Carman Room. All patrons are welcome to wear a mask in the LPL should they choose, and masks are available. Per CDC and state health department guidelines as of publication, unvaccinated patrons must wear a mask.
