Celebrate National Library Week


This National Library Week, April 8-14, join the Tipp City Public Library celebrating our local libraries-the place where we all belong. The Library will host a broad range of exciting activities for all ages. Come find out where you fit in.

Beginning Monday, we will unveil our Children’s Book Challenge. Can you identify a book by character and quote? Complete the challenge and enter to win a prize. Twisted Stitchers, a knitting group for teens, will meet at 4:00 pm Monday. Teens learn to knit or stop by to continue a project.  Love a great mystery? Then you belong at Mystery Lovers Book Discussion. Stop by the library to pick up a copy of “Naked Once More” by Elizabeth Peters to join the discussion.

Tuesday features our Art Start program at 6:00pm for children ages 3-7. Kids, sign up and plan to bring an adult with you to help make a “feathered friend” to place in our Library tree.

Wednesday we have Little Ducklings Story Time for one year olds at 10:30am (registration required). After school from 3:00-5:00 pm teens can stop in, relax in their own space, enjoy snacks and play Wii.

Thursday at 1:00pm during the Library’s Classics Book Discussion adults can discuss Franz Kafka’s “The Metamorphosis” the tale of what happens when a man loses his place in this world.   Copies of “The Metamorphosis” can be picked up at the library in advance.

Friday enjoy your morning coffee break with us at 10:30am with a Sip and a Sneak Peek, we’ll showcase the latest releases at the Library while you get your morning caffeine and pastry fix.  For the aspiring poet we will continue the series Poetry Matters: Writing a Poem from the Inside Out with Susan Hoke. This ongoing program is on writing and appreciating poetry for adults. Visit the library to pick up a copy of the companion book.

Still not convinced you belong at the Tipp City Public Library? Join us Saturday for our National Library Finale where we will convert the Tipp City Public Library into a Putt-Putt course.  Family Putt-Putt is from 6:30-8:00pm and open to anyone age 5 and up. Children ages 5-10 must have an adult on their team. Call 937-677-3826 to sign up for your Tee Time!
