PLAQUEMINE - It’s going to be a busy and fun summer at your local library. Just check out some of the exciting things we are offering.  At the Plaquemine branch we will have a “Monday Matinee” each Monday through July 14 at 2:30 p.m.  Lapsit Storytime will be every Tuesday (10:30 a.m.) and Pre-school Storytime will be Thursday (10 a.m.) A very special program featuring Harvey Rabbit and Friends will take place at the Math, Science and Arts Academy West on July 9 at 10 a.m. and also at the White Castle Library on the same day at 2 p.m.  .* Also in July, the Plaquemine branch will have a Pre-teen program (ages 9-12) each Thursday at 1 p.m. and a Young Adult Program (ages 12-18) at 2 p.m. every Tuesday through July 8th.  Speaking of young adults, (ages 12-18) you are invited to attend a “Lock-In” on July 15th from 6-9 p.m. This is going to be so much fun!! Keep in mind that you must pre-register for this program by calling or visiting the library.

Can you say “Pinterest Party!?” On Saturday, July 26 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. the Plaquemine branch will have the Coupon Swap Edition. We will learn the basics of couponing and trade coupons with others who may be on a budget and would like to save money. Start collecting coupons now to bring with you to the event.  Keep this in mind: Overseas military members can use expired coupons up to six months past their expiration date. So save those expired coupons and we will make a coupon care package for our military personnel.

At the White Castle Branch, Lapsit will be each Tuesday at 10 a.m. and Storyhour will be at 3:30 p.m. for K-3rd grade. We will have pre-teen programming at 3:30 p.m. on Mondays. Storytime for ages 2-5 will be each Thursday at 10 a.m.

If you visit one of the branches in the northern part of the parish you will still find plenty to do. Rosedale branch will have programs each Tuesday at 11 a.m. (ages 0-11) and 2 p.m. (ages 12-18) Maringouin has a program for all ages each Wednesday at 3 p.m. and Grosse Tete Branch has Storytime each Monday at 11 a.m.

If you are in the southern part of Iberville you might want to visit the Bayou Sorrel Branch where Storytime is held each Wednesday in July at 11 a.m.  At Bayou Pigeon, Storytime will be on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. Last day of programs is July 16.

Finally, at the East Iberville branch you can attend Storytime on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. (all ages) and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m.  A pre-teen program will be held each Monday at 1 p.m.  (Ages 9-11)

No matter which branch library you visit this summer be sure to pick up a Summer Reading Log to keep track of the books you read this summer. It’s fun and if you read at least 10 books you may win a prize. Ask your local librarian to sign you up and let you know how it works.
