Stop by the Library any time on November 10 or November 11 and we’ll show you how to upcylcle an old mass market paperback into a bookish decoration fit to be your Thanksgiving centerpiece!

What activities would you like to see at the library?

The weather is cooling off and it’s time to start thinking about cozy indoor activities. Here at the library, we’d like to start hosting more events for adults in our sunny reading area.
What are some activities you enjoy?
Board games (chess, Scrabble, etc)?
Card games?
Something else?
We’d like to host activities for men and women.
And there might even be free coffee!

Lego Club coming soon!

Here at the Virginia Memorial Public Library, we’re planning to start a Lego Club for kids of all ages! What is Lego Club, you may ask?

Lego Club is a lot of fun!!

The library will provide Legos, and you’ll provide the imagination! We’ll meet once a month and you can build whatever you like or something related to a theme we’ll suggest. ┬áThen your awesome creation will be displayed at the library for everyone too see!

The program will be open to all ages and you won’t have to have a library card to participate.

In the meantime, I need some help from you. What time would be best for you or your child to participate in Lego club? After school or Saturday mornings?

And if anyone has spare Legos looking for a new home, the library will gladly accept donations!

Stop by and let me know what you think, or email me at

I look forward to hearing from you!
