Coplay Public Library: Library open house a fun time for all

Monday, December 23, 2019 by The Press in Columns

The library’s annual holiday open house, which was held Dec. 21, was a wonderful time for all. Thank you to everyone who joined us for fun and frolic.

If you couldn’t make the open house, stop in and see our beautiful decorations and accept our wishes for a joyful holiday season.

Sign up or renew your library card while you’re here.

We welcome your suggestions to improve services, programs offered or anything else.

***

Congratulations to the winners of the holiday stockings raffle.

Many thanks to all who purchased tickets. All proceeds benefited the library.

***

If you received a Kindle, Nook or other device through which you can download an audio or e-book for Christmas, then learn about Overdrive, a resource you can access with your library card.

For details, go to the library’s home page, coplaypubliclibrary.org. Click on E-resources, then Libby/Overdrive. You will find instructions using your personal device.

The password is the last four digits of the phone number you wrote on your library registration card. Your library card must be current to use the Overdrive app.

Use this free resource over the holidays to unwind from all the traffic and festivities.

***

Bring your children to storytime and crafts with Miss Veronica and Miss Janice 11 a.m. Dec. 26. Adults are also welcome for a fun and relaxing hour.

No preregistration is required.

Next month’s dates are Jan. 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30, 2020.

If you have any questions regarding storytime, contact the library at 610-262-7351.

***

Need to get out of the house on a dreary Monday night? Come to our monthly game nights, scheduled for 5-7 p.m.

Our Scrabble experts are here to accept challengers or learners. Bring your family and friends to play Scrabble.

We also have our own games for you to use. Options include Connect 4, Uno, Candyland and Twister. You are also welcome to bring your own games.

If you or someone you know is interested in learning chess, let anyone working at the desk know. If there is interest, maybe we can explore this idea in the new year.

***

Happy New Year to you all from the Coplay Public Library board and staff.

The library will be closed New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

***

Winter has officially arrived. Our primary concern is the safety of our patrons and staff. While we make every effort to remain open, there will be times when it will be necessary to close the library.

Follow us on the WFMZ Stormcenter and our Facebook page for any closings.

No fines are charged for any days we are closed or close early.
