Story Times
Visit Forsyth Public Library on Fridays for Story Time fun! Activities, stories and crafts are designed for children ages 3 to 5 and their caregivers, but siblings are always welcome. No registration is required. Upcoming themes are Umbrellas and Rain on March 31 and Flowers on April 7. Story Time will not meet on April 14.   

Parents, caregivers and their young children (ages 0 to 3) are encouraged to attend Baby TALK times at the library. Baby TALK provides children and parents with social interaction and positive parenting strategies. Sessions include simple rhymes, stories, dancing and play time. Baby TALK meets every Wednesday at 9:30 a.m.

Family LEGO Time
We love LEGOs! Do you? Join us for Family LEGO Time on Saturday, April 1 from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. No registration is necessary.

Furniture upgrade update
Mona Deming, a designer with Embury, Ltd., the Wisconsin-based firm hired by the library for its updated floor plan and furniture upgrade project, visited the library in late February to talk signage and furniture delivery. The majority of new items should be delivered the week of April 10 followed by the remainder being delivered between April 24 and May 5.

Check out Disc Golf
Spring is here, and it’s the ideal time to try Forsyth’s Disc Golf course, located in Forsyth Park! Check out a bag from the library with an official disc, course map and scorecard. “What is Disc Golf” brochures from the Professional Disc Golf Association are available to help explain the game. Disc Golf is like traditional golf, except instead of using a ball and clubs, players throw a disc toward a metal basket. The goal is to get to the disc in the basket in the fewest number of throws. Play the game solo, with friends or family.

Summer calendar in progress
Library Director Rachel Miller and Youth Services Librarian Sandi Hayes have been working hard on summer reading plans. They are busy creating descriptions and wording for the library’s portion of the upcoming summer calendar.

Food For Thought
The Food For Thought Book Club will meet Thursday, April 6 at 6 p.m. to discuss Mary Lynn’s book The Forgotten Life of Sarah Grady. Ms. Lynn will join us as we discuss this historical novel set in Decatur and based on actual letters found in a Millikin Place home. Food For Thought Book Club shares a light meal at each meeting and welcomes new members.
