Winter Happenings at the Harbaugh~Thomas Library

Winter Happenings at the Harbaugh~Thomas Library

Brrr! It’s cold! As I write this article, the temperature has dipped below zero a few times today, and the wind chill factor makes it feel very frigid outdoors. Maybe by the time you read this article it will not be as cold, and this first full week in January will just be a memory.
If you’re looking for something to do during these cold days, why not visit the Harbaugh~Thomas Library? The library offers more than just books; we have something for everyone. Books, movies, music, magazines, computers, wi-fi…it is all here at the library. Read the latest issue of a favorite magazine. Check out a cookbook and find new recipes for dinner. Catch up on your favorite TV shows. And, as always, if a copy of an item is not available at the library, we can put you on hold for the next available copy.
While visiting the library, check out some of the programs we offer for everyone. Storytimes take place Tuesdays at 6:30pm and Wednesdays at 10:30am. Tuesday storytimes are perfect for preschoolers and early elementary school-aged children. Wednesday storytimes are perfect for preschoolers aged 2-5. Each storytime features stories, activities, crafts and fun. No registration is required.
If you attend a Tuesday night storytime on the third Tuesday of the month, or wish to do something fun with the family, come to Family Game Night at 7pm. The library supplies board and card games; families can select a game and play anywhere in the library. The next Family Game Night will take place Tuesday, January 21. No registration is required.
The 2014 Teen Book Chat starts on Thursday, January 30 at 6pm. Typically held the fourth Thursday of the month, from 6pm-7pm, January through October, Teen Book Chat lets high schoolers come together and discuss a book while munching on pizza and snacks. The January book is “An Abundance of Katherines” by John Green. Copies are available for pick up at the library; registration is required.
Adults interested in historical fiction novels and mysteries may want to attend Journey through Time book discussion. Held the third Tuesday of every month at 7pm, this book discussion is a new program at the library. The first meeting of the year will be January 21, and we will be discussing “The Paris Wife” by Paula McLain. Copies are available for pick up at the library; no registration is required.
Our adult basic computer classes will begin again this February. Held the third Thursday of the month, February through October, each class focuses on a different aspect of the computer. The first class, Using the Mouse, will take place on February 20 at 1:00pm and again at 6:30pm. Choose a class time that best fits your schedule. Each class size is limited, so registration is required.
The Harbaugh~Thomas Library is located at 59 West York Street in Biglerville. Our hours of operation are Mondays 12pm-6pm; Tuesdays 12pm-8pm; Wednesdays 10am-6pm; Thursdays 12pm-8pm; Fridays 10am-6pm; and Saturdays 9am-5pm.
