Start the New Year with great books and much more

Child at programLooking for great reads and ways to enjoy the winter months? Norman Public Library East has you covered with the Pioneer Library System’s collection of more than 675,000 books, magazines, DVDs and downloadable items.

Materials can be transferred between PLS libraries within a matter of days and be in readers’ hands for a nice evening in from the cold with a captivating read.

The library also will begin the New Year with an array of program options for various ages and featuring many topics.

Among the upcoming offerings in early January are:

For families with young children, Family Story Time is a regular weekly offering at 10 a.m. on most Thursdays. The Story Times include rhymes, songs and opportunities for parents and caregivers to learn new literacy skills to support their child’s development.

Those parents and caregivers, and anyone age 12 and up, can start their year in an organized way with the library’s Bullet Journaling 101 program, at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 7. The library will provide a journal and materials like markers, tape, stencils, pencils, stamps, and stickers to decorate it. Attendees are welcome to bring their own journal and supplies if they desire.

The library also is debuting a new group for crocheting and knitting in 2019. The Knit Pickers Stitch-In, a community meetup group for those interested in knitting or crocheting, will meet at 10:30 a.m. on each Saturday beginning Jan. 5. This will be a casual meetup group where all ages and experience levels can share expertise on their craft and work on projects.
