Minden Library hosts family fun

Amy Roby

The Douglas County Public Library in Minden has a fun lineup of events planned for April.

Sponsored by The Friends of the Library, this month’s First Saturday Family Movie is “Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo.” The animated film is rated G and screens Saturday at 2 p.m. The movie is free and complimentary popcorn will be served.

April 14, the library’s Teen Advisory Board hosts a Children’s Book Swap as part of National Library Week. From 10 a.m.-3 p.m., children may bring in a gently used book and trade it for a different title. A wide variety of children’s books will be available.

During next weekend’s book swap, the “very literal literary character” Amelia Bedelia will make an appearance. She will arrive at 11 a.m. and amuse families with her well-intended-yet-questionable housekeeping skills. The library is delighted to have Carol Nageotte perform as the beloved Amelia Bedelia.

April 14 also marks the conclusion of the In-n-Out Burger Cover to Cover reading program. Participants should turn in their reading logs to redeem a certificate for either a hamburger or cheeseburger.

The Minden Branch is located at 1625 Library Lane.
