During a Harker Heights City Council meeting Tuesday, Mayor Rob Robinson read a proclamation declaring April 13-19 as “National Public Library Week” in Heights. Library Director Lisa Youngblood received the honor.

On April 6, the building that houses the library and the activities center turned 5 years old. To celebrate, library staff held a small birthday party.

Budding young musicians, artists and actors will get the chance to shine at the Youth Arts Festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

The Book Club will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday to discuss “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn.

Be ready for a hands-on experiment at 6 p.m. during Science Night on Thursday, part of the weekly Family Fun Night.

The Friends of the Library will host a book sale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 26. It gives the community the opportunity to stock up on reading, listening and watching materials for a steal of a deal. This sale also features a specific area for teaching materials.

Since every patron’s needs are different, the library also offers eBooks. Residents can check out new additions: “Tacky’s Christmas,” by Helen Lester for children; “The King’s Guard,” by Rae Carson for young adults; “Asunder,” by Chloe Aridjis; and “On the Road,” by Jack Kerouac; and “Tell No One,” by Harlan Coben for adults.

Newly arrived audio CD’s include: “Dance of the Reptiles: Selected Columns,” by Carl Hiaasen; “Lord and Lady Bunny: Almost Royalty!,” by Polly Horvath; “P.K. Pinkerton and the Pistol-Packing Widows,” by Caroline Lawrence; and “The Proving Trail,” by Louis L’Amour.

New books include: “The Book of Doof: How to Find an Arch Nemesis and Other Evil Advice,” by Scott Peterson; “The Crusades of Cesar Chavez: A Biography,” by Miriam Pawel; and “Faith Steps for Military Families: Spiritual Readiness Through the Psalms of Ascent,” by Lisa Nixon Phillips.
