Berne Library Notes for Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Journalist B.C. Forbes said, "It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the spring, who reaps a harvest in the Autumn."  

The idea for a new library in Berne was planted over ten years ago and this autumn we will reap our reward for patience and hard work. The tiles and carpet were installed this week at 1763 Helderberg Trail, the future location of the Berne Public Library. Over the next few weeks, the contractor will apply the finishing touches and volunteers will move the bookcases and furniture into the building from several storage areas.

If you are interested in helping with this process, contact the library staff at 872-1246 or e-mail  Stay tuned for the fall dates when we move the books and have our grand opening.

Story time

Story time continues every Tuesday at 11 a.m.  Join Kathy on Oct. 1, for fun about cats and the letter C.  Preschool children develop literacy skills while their caregivers pick up pointers for helping the children become lifelong learners.  Stories, activities, and a craft are always included in this engaging weekly program.

Friends meet

The Friends of the Library have been invaluable in making dreams become reality.  The group meets on Wednesday, Oct. 2, at 7:30 p.m., in the meeting room adjacent to the library. Anyone interested in supporting the library is welcome at these monthly meetings.

Teen help

The new library will have a young adult section and we need the help of teens. What items do you want in this area? How would you like it decorated? What programs would you like to have?  Come to the first Teen Action Group (TAG) meeting on Friday, Oct. 4, at 6 p.m., to discuss options. The meeting will be followed by Teen Movie Night at 7 p.m. The majority will decide which PG-13 rated movie to watch Iron Man 3 or World War Z.

New items

A new page has been added to our website.  Check out Newly Ordered Items after going to See what books and movies have been ordered for the month of September and October. There are lots of new things happening in Berne.
