Sadly, spring break is coming to an end this week and some schoolchildren are already loathing the return to classes.
Luckily, the Copperas Cove Public Library is offering plenty of events and activities during the coming week that should help relieve some of the stress of returning to school.
For starters, Toddler Time and Story Time will be returning this week. Both sessions will be reading books about the subject of spring, which is appropriate, as spring officially begins Tuesday. Toddler Time and Story Time are Tuesday and Thursday, respectively, at 10 a.m.
Also on Tuesday, the library will offer e-book help from 2 to 3 p.m. The service is designed to help readers new to digital reading devices learn how to check out electronic books from the library over the internet.
The Double C’s Square Dance Club’s weekly lessons are at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The lessons are a way for attendees to learn the ins and outs of square dancing before the group’s bi-monthly square dances. The group’s next square dance will be at 7 p.m. March 23.
On Wednesday, the local AARP will offer free tax assistance at the library from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. The tax help is every Wednesday at the library until the April 17 tax filing deadline.
The Maker’s Club will meet at the library from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday to discuss projects they have been working on and to get feedback on future activities.
The Medieval Arts and Sciences group will meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday to discuss two different types of metal work: repousse and metal molding. Repousse is a method by which a relief is hammered in metal from the reverse side and metal molding involves shaping the metal in various ways.
On Thursday, area teenagers are invited to the monthly Teen Reading Group, which gives the library a chance to show off some of the new teen novels it has acquired in the past month. The group meets from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.
The Writer’s Society will meet in the library at 6 p.m. Thursday. Aspiring and published authors will meet to give feedback and work on stories and other writings as the year progresses.
