It is officially 2018, and that means there is a whole year of new activities and books to read at the Copperas Cove Public Library.
The library staff is putting new books on the shelves every week, and the January calendar has been posted, highlighting various events throughout January.
The first big events to return in the new year are Toddler Time and Story Time. Toddler Time is an hour of reading at 10 a.m. Tuesday for children ages 1 to 3. Story Time is the same thing for ages 3 to 5 at 10 a.m. Thursday. Both reading times will focus on the subject of winter.
Also on Tuesday, the library will be offering e-book help from 2 to 3 p.m. Library staff and volunteers will give tutoring and training to readers that need help using digital devices to check books out of the library over the internet.
A final event Tuesday is the return of square dance lessons, hosted by the Double C Square Dance group. The dance lessons are meant to prepare attendees for the bi-monthly square dances held Fridays. The first dance of 2018 will be at 7 p.m. Jan. 12.
On Wednesday the library will be hosting the Maker’s Club at 6 p.m. Group members will meet to discuss the projects they will be working on in the new year and share ideas with one another.
On Thursday, the Writer’s Society will meet in the library at 6 p.m. Aspiring and published authors will meet to give feedback and work on stories and other writings as the year progresses.
