Berne Library Notes for Wednesday, January 22, 2014

To help escape from the cold weather, warm up with a bowl of hot soup.  January is National Soup Month and you can celebrate by using the Berne Public Library’s cookbook collection to find the perfect soup recipe. Soup is an ideal meal for the winter months. According to the Mayo Clinic, chicken soup also works to relieve cold symptoms.      

Thank you

Thanks to the following volunteers who came out on a blustery Monday for a work bee at the library:  Jim and Marion Burghart, Bob Gwin, Terry Hatton, MaryJo McKeon, Sharon Nevins, Laura Simpson, Alan Zuk, and Millie Zuk.  The building touch-ups make the library even more inviting.

Story time

Story time is Tuesday, Jan. 28, at 11 a.m.  Preschool children and their caregivers are invited to join Kathy in an exploration of the letter R.  Rascal raccoons and red-hot rocks will be a part of this early literacy program.  

Child’s library day

Libraries strengthen families by offering a warm, comfortable, and welcoming space. The available resources allow families to learn, grow, and play together. Take Your Child to the Library Day is Saturday, Feb. 1. Save the date for a visit to show your children that libraries are a great place to be. Crafts and a potential gift basket are in the plans for this special day.  

E-books

Remember that libraries are also a source of free e-books and e-audios. To find out how to download digital content from the library on to your device, attend the program Ipads, Kindles, and Nooks, Oh My on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 6:30 pm. Registration is requested by calling the library at 872-1246 or e-mailing director@bernepubliclibrary.org.

The French playwright Moliere said, “I live on good soup, not on fine words.”  Many think life is best when it includes both.
