The Copperas Cove Public Library has a busy week planned, if the schedule on the calendar is any indication.

That is good news for Cove residents because it means there are plenty of activities.

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

On Monday, staff and volunteers will be taking a short breather, with the library closing for Presidents Day.

But the library will be jumping right back into the thick of it on Tuesday, and the first item on the calendar is Toddler Time at 10 a.m. The reading subject for children ages 1 to 3 will be teeth.

Story Time — at 10 a.m. Thursday for ages 3 to 5 — will be about the same subject.

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 Square Dance group will be holding lessons at the library Tuesday at 6 p.m. The weekly lessons are meant to prepare attendees for the bi-monthly square dances held every other Friday. The next square dance is at 7 p.m. Feb. 23.

On Wednesday, the local AARP will offer free tax help at the library on a first come, first served basis. The tax help will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Wednesday at the library until the tax filing deadline.

Also on Wednesday, the Medieval Arts and Sciences group will meet at 7 p.m. The group will be discussing block printing.

The library will offer activities for children who are home schooled at 1 p.m. Thursday.

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.

The book club will meet at 10 a.m. Feb. 23 at the library.
