We’ve had a few problems with our web site during the past month, so it’s been difficult to post. Hopefully, we have all the issues taken care of now. We will be open on Good Friday, the Saturday before and the Monday following Easter.
First of all, we have the “Used-Book Sale” in progress now through mid-May. The Friends of the Library got all of those books out of our storage shed in the back and have been going through them. We have a huge selection of all sorts of books in the Emily Pinnick Room now, so come in and take advantage of the bargains. 25¢ each or 5 for $1.
We’re also in the midst of preparing for Summer Reading 2014. The theme for the year is “Fizz, Boom, Read.” As you can probably tell, we’re planning the activities around a science theme. It should be lots and lots of fun!
We will be having Story Time on Wednesday, March 19, at 10:00 a.m. LaTonya’s theme for the day will be “Bunnies.” So, hop on down to the library for some fun stories and activities.
Other things going on at the library this month are our Used-Book Sale and a “Meet the MPL Staff” display in the Trainor-Clay Display Case.
Thanks to everyone who purchased items in our Usborne Book Fair. The library earned a lot of good children’s books because of your generosity.
We will celebrate Dr. Seuss’s Birthday at Story Time on Wednesday, March 5, at 10:00 a.m. Marshan Padgett will be our guest storyteller, and she has lots of fun stories and activities planned for the little ones.
Don’t forget the Usborne Book Fair going on this week. There is a wide variety of books available to purchase at the library, and you can also purchase through their catalog.
Meade Public Library is sponsoring the Usborne Book Fair through March 6. Come in and see the selection of beautiful books to choose from. Items can be purchased and taken that day, or they can be ordered from the Usborne catalog. For every book you purchase, you get a ticket to place in a drawing. On the evening of March 6, we will be drawing for four different books.
This program not only allows you to take home some quality books for yourself or to be used as gifts, but it also benefits Meade Public Library and allows us to earn books for our collections.

Story Time will be this coming Wednesday, February 19, at 10:00 a.m. Our guest storyteller will be Beverly Campbell, and her theme will be “Penguins.” With all the snow we’ve had lately, this is a good subject to read about! There will also be several fun activities and crafts for the little ones. See you there!!!
The library will be OPEN for regular hours (9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.) on Thursday, February 6. We know it will be cold, but hopefully the rest of the weather will cooperate with us!
Make sure to come in and load up on books, movies, magazines, audio books, etc., to fight the cabin fever. If you don’t feel comfortable getting out on the streets, please call the library. Caleb will deliver the library materials to you if you need them.
The library will be closed on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, due to the inclement weather. We’re hoping to be back open on Thursday, but make sure and check this site before you make a special trip! Story Time, which was scheduled for Wednesday, is also cancelled.
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted, so I’ll try to catch you up on what’s going on at Meade Public Library.
Coming up this Wednesday, January 29: It’s Kansas Day, and we will be celebrating at Story Time. Sarah May will be the guest storyteller with Kansas stories and fun activities. Marshal Allen Bailey will also be singing “Home on the Range” for the little ones. It should be a fun morning.
We have books out in the Emily Pinnick Room for the “Used Book Sale.” Most of these books have never been in the sale before, so there should be some new ones for you to choose from. You can’t beat our prices: 25¢ per books — or 5 books for $1.00.
Don’t forget to ask about the many services available through Meade Public Library. Some of the new things available are Zinio e-Magazines and a Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner that can be checked out. Some of the things that have been around awhile: Databases and audio & e-books available through the Kansas Library Card, laptop computer checkout and projector checkout.
The last Story Time for 2013 will be this Wednesday, December 18, at 10:00 a.m. LaTonya’s special Christmas theme will be “Bells and Angels.” Come and enjoy the stories and activities she has planned.
Make sure to check back in a few weeks to see the spring schedule for Story Time.
The Library will be closed on the following days during the next few weeks:

We have a busy week planned at the library.
Story Time is Wednesday, December 4, at 10:00 a.m. LaTonya’s theme is “Bundle Up with Hats and Mittens.” She has lots of great stories and activities planned for the children.
