There is always something happening at the Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Library.

Every second Thursday, the Military Child Education Coalition visits the library as part of their literacy outreach programs. MCEC will present a puppet show at 6 p.m. for Family Fun Night.

Remember, there is a new book club for adults, and the next discussion is at 6 p.m. March 20. The book to be discussed will be “The Monuments Men,” by Robert M. Edsel.

Next week is National Consumer Protection Week and the library will have a consumer education display with the latest information on consumer protection, identity protection and identity theft, living life online and being a smarter consumer.

A Home Buying 101 class is from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Learn about home inspections, financing, buying terms, titles, fees, insurance, legal responsibilities and property taxes. Register at the library or call 254-953-5491 to sign up for the free class.

The library’s weekly home school program teaches library education and learning skills to local home-schooled children at no cost. In celebration of spring break, this week’s program will be themed spring break/St. Patrick’s Day, and will include a craft and story time. The group meets at 11 a.m. Wednesdays.

One-on-one computer training is a service the library provides. Take 30 minutes to learn or brush up on topics such as Internet, computer and research basics, resume writing, online job searching, Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The computer training is provided by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, call the library or email circulation@ci.harker-heights.tx.us.

Senior citizens and individuals with low and moderate incomes can get tax help from AARP representatives from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursdays and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays through April 12.

In addition to programs and services, the library frequently gets new books. New arrivals include: “1914,” by Jean Echenoz; “American Fun: Four Centuries of Joyous Revolt,” by John Beckman; “Andrew’s Brain,” by E. L. Doctorow; “Cell,” by Robin Cook; “The Chase,” by Janet Evanovich; “Concealed In Death,” by J. D. Robb; “Confessions of a Wild Child,” by Jackie Collins; “Conquest,” by John Connolly; “The Counterfeit Agent,” by Alex Berenson; “A Curious Madness,” by Eric Jaffe.
