Whitehall library: Simply Play program is on Wednesdays

Wednesday, January 17, 2018 by The Press in Columns

We have a new program for children called Simply Play, held 1 p.m. Wednesdays in January and February. The program is learning through playtime with the new toys we received with a state grant.

Legos and other items are available, and stories will be read, too.


Reminder: Come in from the cold and register for the adult winter reading program. Our theme this year is “Book Your Winter Getaway!”

Sign-ups started Jan. 15 and continue until March 15, either online or at the front circulation desk.

This is open to anyone 18 years old and older. All you need to do is write down the author and title of each book you read or listen to and turn in the log by 5 p.m. March 15.

The wrap-up party will be March 27, 1-2 p.m. or 6-7 p.m.

There is an additional reading challenge you may complete to be entered to win an additional prize. You must complete the challenge and return it by 5 p.m. March 15.


The beading club will meet 1:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays.


The fourth Tuesday adult coloring club will meet 11 a.m. Jan. 23. Anyone 18 years old and older is welcome to join us.

The library has some supplies but invites you to bring your own as well.


Our What Are You Reading Now? book club meets 1 p.m. Jan. 23. We meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month.

Patrons are invited to chat about whatever books they are reading at the moment — the ones you loved, the ones you hated and everything in between.


Call the library at 610-432-4339 for more information on any of our programs. We have the newsletter and calendar on our website, whitehallpl.org, and at the front circulation desk.
