What's Happening
April 2021
DIrector's Corner:
Spring is here! Though we won't be holding the International Spring Festival this year, we are planning to be back in 2022 with that event.  With more daylight hours since Daylight Savings Time has begun, the library has increased our Browse and Borrow hours to 10am to 7pm Monday through Friday and 10 am to 3 pm on Saturdays. The other change we made recently is the switch from Overdrive (Libby) to cloudLibrary as the provider of our e-books and streaming audiobooks.  cloudLibrary allows us to seamlessly borrow from other participating libraries' digital collections in a virtual Inter-Library Loan service.  Thus expanding our offerings almost fortyfold! Digital magazines are now offered through cloudLibrary Newsstand
I hope that you find it easy to make these transitions.  Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback.
April 4-10 is National Library Week.  The theme this year is Welcome to your Library.  "During the pandemic, library workers continue to exceed their communities' demands and adapt resources and services to meet their users' needs during these challenging times. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer endless opportunities to transform lives through education and lifelong learning." April is also National Poetry Month. You can find ways to celebrate at poets.org

Book Discussion: The Home Place
Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature on April 19 at 7pm via Zoom.
Birds are a lifelong passion for Drew Lanham, and in his book, The Home Place, he examines his history and path, its influences, and his struggles. Readers follow his journey as a successful wildlife ecologist who, along the way, uncovers lessons about legacy and his own need to inject a deeper sense of human caring into his life and work.

Get in the Game Tuesdays at 7pm
Games are educational. They involve critical thinking, problem solving, and a constant learning cycle based on hypothesizing, experimenting and evaluating. Games meet developmental needs, encourage social interaction between peers and non-peers, enforce rules and boundaries, encourage
creative expression, reward competence and achievement, and provide opportunity for self-definition. Join us on Zoom for Game Night.  Email director@lansdalelibrary.org for the Zoom link.
