Bradford library swings into spring


For the Daily Call



BRADFORD — Mid-March brings spring and along with it comes several events at the Bradford Public Library.

On Thursday, March 23, the senior citizens group will meet from 1-3 p.m. to play cards. Then on Friday, March 24, the New Friends of the Library will take a road trip. All seats have been reserved and there’s a waiting list, but stay tuned: the library may be holding another trip soon.

Cherie Roeth will be going over each of the A to Z Databases supported by BPL at 2 p.m. Monday, March 27. If you are looking for a job, want to write a resume, looking for a lost relative or friend, love to travel the U.S. and the world, then this hourlong workshop us for you. Refreshments will be served.

Also on March 27, the library’s board of trustees will meet in the Community Room at 5:30 p.m.

Anyone is welcome to attend.

On Tuesday, March 28, the library begins its three-week “Big Read’s Expressions.” First up, BPL will be one of 16 libraries and book stores in the Dayton area that will be celebrating the award-winning book “The Wright Brothers” by David McCullough. There will be book discussions on Tuesdays, March 28 and April 4 at 10:30 am. Sign-ups are encouraged since you will most likely need the book to participate.

Next, students ages 10-18 can create their very own Wright flyer with Legos and other materials on Saturday, April 8. All materials will be provided at this session, which lasts from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The creations will be displayed throughout the month of April.

The third activity is a road trip by car to the Dayton area on Wednesday, April 12, to visit Hawthorne Hill, Huffman Prairie Flying Field and Interpretive Center and the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park. The cost is $25 per person, which will include any admissions and lunch. Sign-up and payment to Bradford Public Library will end on Tuesday, March 28.

Winding up the month will be a meeting of the Crochet and Knitting Club at 6:30 p.m. March 28. New members are always welcome.

Bradford Public Library is located at 138 E. Main St. For more information about these activities, call (937) 448-2612.
