A barking good time

Miss Jen, all the preschoolers and their caregivers are shouting out a big thank-you to the therapy dogs and their handlers for visiting Storytime at the library. Jeanette, Pam and Michelle brought three wonderful dogs, a Newfoundland, a poodle and a yellow lab to visit. The dogs took it all in stride as 65 attendees were amazed with them. Little fan clubs formed among the preschoolers as they tried to decide which dog was their favorite. A fantastically, fabulous good time was had by all as this Storytime went to the dogs. Please come again soon.

Adult computer classes

Beginning adult computer classes are scheduled to start on Monday, March 12. Classes are held on Monday and Wednesday afternoons at 1 p.m. for six weeks. There are no openings left for this session. Call the library at 319-624-268 to register for the next session which will begin on May 21.

Lots of early outs, lots of movies in March

There’s spring fever even before spring break. Early-outs abound and that means movies at the library. On Wednesday, March 7, the cars, too, will take over. And, watch out because the very next day, Thursday, March 8, it will be all about how to train your dragon– just in time for spring break.
Movies last from 1 until 3 p.m. All Solon students are welcome. Children under the age of 10 attending the movie need to be picked up by parents or caregivers at 3 p.m.

Spring break schedule

Normal library activities will be taking place during the school’s spring break week (March 12 until 16). Regular library hours, Monday through Thursday, noon until 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., and closed on Sunday will be in effect.

For third graders, the books needed to complete reading activities for the March reading bingo sheets are on display in the children’s area.
