Mrs. Blackford is back to Toddler Story Time with a dinosaur theme. Those attending are asked to bring their favorite dinosaur and to say a little about them. Story Time is at 11 a.m. with stories and a related craft. Children not yet reading can earn rewards for the Summer Ready Program by being read to.

Prizes are awarded for the toddler category. All adults are encouraged to be a reading role model and to earn their own adult reading prizes.

Today is the last Miss Ginny’s Story Time until August or September.

The Memorial Day Holiday has moved the dates up for the meeting of the book clubs. The Junior Book Club meets today at 4 p.m. The Adult Book Club meets on Monday, May 21, at 4 p.m.

Computer assistance and adult tutoring are available by prior arrangement. The Monday tutoring at 4 p.m. is more flexible and continues to be a service for specific need-to-learn computer techniques and procedures.

This service is for those who choose to learn or do something which requires close attention and instruction. A portable drive such as a USB is required for saving work and tutoring users must bring material to communicate their learning needs.

The library has a supply of free voter information guides related to the upcoming primary election on June 5. Additional information may be obtained at
