National Library Week may officially be over, but there is always something fun and exciting happening at the Copperas Cove Public Library.

This week, there are plenty of events for people of all ages.

For starters, the library will host Gaming Day at 10 a.m. Saturday. The monthly event allows gamers of all types to meet at the library and engage in a variety of play, from video games and card games to board games and pen-and-paper games.

Every Tuesday the library hosts Toddler Time at 10 a.m. The reading event is for children ages 1 to 3. The library also hosts Story Time on Thursdays at 10 a.m. for children ages 3 to 5.

The theme of Toddler Time and Story Time this week will be birthdays.

E-book help, from 2 to 3 p.m., is also on Tuesdays. The service is designed to help readers new to using digital reading devices learn how to check out electronic books from the library over the internet.

The Double C Square Dance group holds lessons at the library at 6 p.m. Tuesdays. The weekly lessons are meant to prepare attendees for the bi-monthly square dances the second and fourth Fridays of the month.

The next dance will be happening from 7 to 10 p.m. April 27.

The library will be offering activities Wednesday for students who are home-schooled. The activities start at 1 p.m.
