Douglas library to celebrate Library Week

Staff reports

In honor of National Library Week, April 1-7, the Douglas County Public Library will host an appearance of Amelia Bedelia, preschool storytime, Teen Mystery Night and a volunteer breakfast.

Community Program Coordinator Carol Rapacz will perform as “Amelia Bedelia,” a favorite book character by author Peggy Parish. Amelia Bedelia is well-known by beginning readers for getting into trouble because she is so literal-minded. The fun begins at 5 p.m. on Monday, April 2.

Storytime is every Wednesday at 10 a.m. Nevada Young Reader’s Award books and new books will be featured this week.

Teen Mystery Night for grades 7-12 will be Friday, April 6, 6-8:30 p.m. Pizza, prizes and fun to help solve the mystery. Registration is required.

Volunteers from the past year will be honored at a volunteer breakfast, Friday, April 6.

“The many hours of service contributed by members of the community help to make our library the best ever,” Rapacz said.

The winter reading program will continue through the month of April.

The library is located at 1625 Library Lane, Minden. For information, call 782-9841.
