Staff and volunteers at the Copperas Cove Public Library are busy preparing to spend Christmas with their families, which means the library will be closed Dec. 22-25.
However, there are still several events planned at the library next week, and there is a little something for everyone.
First up on the calendar is Gaming Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The monthly event allows gamers of all types to meet at the library play whatever their hearts desire, from video games and card games to board games and pen-and-paper games.
“We also have a new DM (dungeon master) who is doing really well with Dungeons & Dragons, though she has some trouble leading large combat encounters,” library Director Kevin Marsh said. “So she is actually teaming up with my daughter to give the players a good experience.
“I expect a pretty good crew to come out for Gaming Day,” he said.
Also on the agenda for next week is the Double C Square Dance group’s weekly lessons from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday. The lessons are meant to prepare interested square dancers for the group’s bi-monthly square dances, which are every other Friday at the library.
The book club will also be meeting at the library, from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday. The book club will once again be discussing “Caroline: Little House, Revisited” by Sarah Miller, because during last month’s meeting most of the club members had not finished reading the book.
The novel takes readers back to the prairie to tell the original story of Caroline Ingalls — “Ma,” as readers of the original “Little House of the Prairie” books would better know her.
