Come celebrate National Library Week with us at Your Home Public Library!  National Library week was first sponsored in 1958 by the American Library Association.  It is celebrated April 12th to the 18th at libraries all across the country to support and promote the use of these fine institutions.  All month long, we’re having our patrons compose a response to “Why I came in the Library”.  So come into the library and grab a marker, be honest and creative, and we will post your answers in the building for all to see!

Join us Tuesday, April 14th at 6:30 PM for a discussion of The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who climbed out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson.  The book tells the story of Allan Karlsson, who surreptitiously slips away on his 100th birthday.  He is enlivened by a colorful cast of characters as secrets from his past reveal the unwitting role he played in national history.  Book Discussions are held in the basement meeting room and everyone is welcome!
