At the Library:
Starting Jan. 8, PPL is going year-round with our storytime! Storytime promotes early literacy and school readiness, and without breaks between sessions, you and your family can continue talking, singing, reading, writing and playing with us all year long. With 38 weekly storytimes broken down by age range, there is something for the whole family. Check the Library Reading Readiness Storytime calendar for times and locations.
Chinese for Beginners
If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to learn a new language, start with Chinese at PPL. Beginning Thursday, Jan. 11, and meeting weekly at Haggard Library through Feb. 15 at 7 p.m., learn the basics of Chinese, covering topics such as greetings, numbers, time and dates, money and shopping.
Cook the Book: English Tea
Get your taste buds ready – it’s tea time! If you love to browse cookbooks and try new things, our Cook the Book book club is perfect for you. On Jan. 16, we are exploring English Tea and all the accompaniments. Stop by the library to pick out a recipe and bring your prepared dish to share and eat with others. Cook the Book meets monthly on the third Tuesday at 1 p.m. at Davis Library.
Audio Editing and Podcasting
Ever wonder how audio equipment works and how to produce a podcast? Teens in grades 6-12 can learn the basics of audio editing to make your own podcast at the Teen Digital Creation Space at Haggard Library on Sunday, Jan. 21 at 2 p.m. Space is limited, so show up 30 minutes prior to get a ticket.
