Effective Communication Strategies (between caregivers and loved ones with alzheimer's) class this saturday at 10:30 am
Daryl Carlson of the Alzheimer's Association will be here this Saturday to present this class. The presenters do a great job and give great support to caregivers. The class runs from 10:30 am to Noon.
Trivia Night is this Friday, April 26th. We start Trivia promptly at 6:30 pm so please get here ahead of that time to get settled in! The event is free, the snacks are free, the babysitting is free but we do appreciate donations to help support library programs! We hope everyone will have a good time, that is our main goal!
We will discuss the book, Love, Lucy by Lucille Ball.
Our May book will be Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton.
Emily Schmidgall was here last week to talk about her grandfather, A.T. Simmons who worked with Paul Moratz, the architect of our original library building. A.T. Simmons went on to build many library buildings throughout the United States. It was a great presentation to make us grateful for the lovely building that we still have today.
If you know someone taking care of a loved one with Alzheimer's, please tell them about our upcoming class with Daryl Carlson from the Alzheimer's Association, called "Effective Communication Strategies" (between caregivers and loved ones with Alzheimer's). It is on Saturday, April 27th from 10:30 am to Noon at the library. We must have at least 5 people registered in advance, or the class will be cancelled. Call the library 309-527-4360 or stop by to register. So far we have 3 people registered.
We now have our maximum number of team sign-ups but our individual team only has 2 people on it. We have one team that we set aside for individuals to sign up - people who would like to play but who can't get enough people together to have a team. So, anyone who would like to join up on the individual team - you have until this Friday to sign up.
Did we mention this is a free event? Free babysitting! Free snacks! How many things in this day and age are free?
Don't sit home and be lonely - come and play Trivia. It is just for fun so don't worry if you don't know all the answers, no one else does either!

Here's an idea - after you visit the Edible Book Contest, why don't you go downstairs and visit the Creation Station? You can then see in person all the fun tools we have to offer and you can meet our newest employee, Latina Williams!
Stop by the library today to see the Edible Book Contest. You can vote on your favorite entries.
What is an edible book contest? It is a contest where the participant makes a creation that ties in some way to a book, whether they tie in with the title, recreate the cover, recreate a scene in the book, or some other creative way they can connect their entry to a book. The entries should be constructed of edible materials.
This contest is fun not only for the participants but for the spectators as well.
