It almost feels like spring is on the way; don’t forget to come into the library and pick up a free kite kit (while supplies last), as a part of Kite Month, until Monday, March 8. For extra fun, post a photo flying the kite to Facebook or Instagram and tag us, @JamersonLibrary!

We would like to remind patrons that Daylight Saving Time starts on Sunday, March 14, this year. Don’t forget to “spring” ahead by turning your clocks up one hour. The Spring Equinox will start on Saturday, May 20.

The library has two new kid friendly spring craft-projects-to-go: a scratch out design bookmark or a coloring page of flowers with insect sticker embellishments. Be sure to stop by the front desk and ask for a project-to-go, we change them with the seasons and holidays, so check back often.

Congratulations to Presley for earning book Number 6 in the Library’s “1000 Things Before Kindergarten” program. This program is open to all preschool patrons to help promote fun and imagination. If you have a preschool aged child 5 years of age or younger, come to the circulation desk to sign them up. Children will earn free books by being active through songs, reading, art, and other educational activities.
