Forsyth County Creek Week is March 23 - March 31. During this week, there are fun and informative activities for all ages happening throughout Forsyth County in honor of our waterways. Come out to your local library and learn more about these amazing and vital natural resources.
Looking for a book club that won't stress you out? Prefer reading or listening to non-fiction books? The Paddison Memorial Branch Library of Kernersville has a group just for people like you. We will meet five times a year (March, May, July, September, and November) to discuss a book with the option to keep the conversation going online.
World Poetry Day is March 21. Let's celebrate with reading and writing the most popular poetry form in the world: the Haiku. Eliot Daniel Esparza will lead us in writing haiku. The simplicity, brevity, and familiar wonders of nature may even inspire you to write your poetry lines in your own native language. All ages and languages welcome!
Every year I try to do a reading challenge by tackling a list of books I normally wouldn’t read. I always end up reading something I never would have picked up. March is National Reading Month. It’s also the month that we celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Thus the first reading challenge - to read a children’s book you have never read before. It could be a classic you never got around to - “The Wind in the Willows” or “Hatchet.” You could try something new like “The First Rule of Punk."
Did you know that paper is the most widely used material in arts and crafts? Dive into our craft supplies to create different themed pieces of art each month, all using paper craft. Some examples include greeting cards, collages, scrapbooks, paper flowers and wood-and-paper projects. Bring your creativity and we'll provide everything else.
Starting Tuesday, March 5, and running through Tuesday, April 9, this six week reading and discussion series focuses on C.S. Lewis' "The Silver Chair," and will include two to three chapters per week. Led by Randy Edwards from Grace Presbyterian Church, the discussion group meets at noon in the conference room of the Paddison Memorial Branch.
