You Belong @ Your Library - 96 years of service

This week, the library celebrates its 96th Anniversary coinciding with National Library Week, April 8-14, 2012.  The theme is "You Belong @ Your Library".

From our quarterly newsletter / program guide, "Off the Shelf":
Why do you belong at PBPL? Your library provides you with access to the latest technology, a genealogical and cultural heritage collection, books in print and electronic formats, resources for job seekers, computer and technology assistance, special children’s programming and many other creative and practical resources.
You belong @ PBPL: National Library Week events:
Anniversary Scavenger Hunt:  Poplar Bluff Public Library is celebrating 96 years of community service with a special week-long scavenger hunt! During National Library Week, you’ll have a chance to find “96” printed on different objects throughout the library. If you find them all, you’ll be entered in a drawing to win a special celebratory surprise!
iKids Launch and Special Story Time:  Join Poplar Bluff Public Library for the launch of the new iKids area at a special story time at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 12. The story will celebrate Drop Everything and Read Day! Additionally, adults and children alike are invited to explore the library’s iKids area, where they can interact with the latest technology in a hands-on, interactive setting.
Edible Book Contest:  You’ll have a chance to bite into a good book with the Library’s Edible Book contest! Community members and library staff are invited to participate.  Whip up any kind of culinary creation representing a book and bring it to the library on Thursday, April 12. Everyone will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite creation and the winner will be announced at 10:30 a.m.  Need an idea? Google images has lots of examples.
