The coming week at the Copperas Cove Public Library is jam-packed with events and activities, with something being offered nearly every day of the week.

The offerings start today, with the Double C Square Dance group holding the first of their twice-monthly dances at the library. The dance will begin at 6:30 p.m. Prospective dancers are encouraged to attend one of the weekly square dance classes held every Tuesday before attending one of the actual dances.

On Saturday, the library will be hosting a marker dedication for the original site of Boys Ranch on Boys Ranch Road in Copperas Cove.

“We should have a lot of local history buffs out for that one,” library director Kevin Marsh said. “We do a lot of things that appeal to a lot of different people.”

The library is offering after-school activities from 3 to 5 p.m. every Monday through Thursday for elementary-school-age students.

Marsh said the library continues to add interesting educational toys for children to play with during the program.

On Tuesday and Thursday, the library will hold Toddler Time and Story Time, respectively, starting at 10 a.m. The subject matter will be fire safety, and the group will take a trip to visit the next-door fire station.

Also on Tuesday, the library will be offering their weekly E-book Help from 2 to 3 p.m. for anyone hoping to learn more about digitally checking out books from the library.

On Wednesday, the Medieval Arts and Sciences group will meet to discuss the making and function of leather armor.

Marsh will lead the class and there will be several hands-on stations set up displaying several of the pieces of armor he has created.

The Teen Reading Group will be meeting Thursday. The group will get to enjoy pizza and see a selection of new teen books the library has been adding to the shelves.

On Friday, the Five Hills Art Guild will host a weaving class from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the library. The class is $15 for anyone who wants to attend.
