The Copperas Cove library had dual festivities throughout the week starting with the kickoff of National Library Week and ending with the observance of Easter.

National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country each April.

It is a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries and librarians across the nation and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries — school, public, academic and special — participate.

National Library Week kicked off with Muffin Monday. The first 100 patrons who checked out library materials received a muffin to enjoy along with their reading materials. The event was sponsored by Copperas Cove H-E-B Plus!

Cameron Adams was at the library during Muffin Monday, along with her three children Tamrin, 4, Sam, 7, and Linda, 7.

“I never heard of National Library Week until today,” Adams said “The kids and I come here every so often so it is a nice treat to come in on a somewhat holiday.”

The monthly book club met for their monthly meeting Wednesday morning to discuss “The Bronze Horseman” by Paullina Simons, a historical novel set in Russia during World War II.

Closed today, Saturday

The library will observe Good Friday and Easter by closing today and Saturday.

Call 254-547-3826. The library is at 501 S. Main St.
