March is chock full of fresh new things for the year. Daylight Savings Time on the 11th. St. Patrick’s Day is always the 17th (but you knew that). First day of spring is the 20th. Palm Sunday on the 25th and finally Good Friday on the 30th. We have quite a few baking pans for Easter celebrations. Come to the library and check them out or look on-line at the catalog.
In China, each lunar cycle has 60 years and 12 years is regarded as a small cycle. Each of the 12 years is defined by an animal sign: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. 2018 is the Year of the Dog.
To celebrate the Chinese New Year on February 16, 2018, why not pick up a bakeware item from the library. We have puppy cake pans, a silicone Bones and Paws pan, Hello Kitty, and several flower shaped items like cookie cutters, and a daisy cake pan – to help you make some cherry blossom treats.
Once again, you can enjoy a fabulous play right in our hometown for a ridiculously low cost on the evenings of February 23 & 24, or a Sunday matinee on the 25th. This year the tickets do not include a meal, but if you want something to warm you up before the play, a separate soup supper will be offered at the venue for a free will donation prior to the performances on Friday and Saturday evenings from 5:30 – 6:30 pm. The ticket prices DO NOT include the soup supper. All proceeds benefit your BEAUTIFUL hometown Overbrook Public Library. See you there! And thank you for your support.
Trivia Night at the Overbrook Library will take place at 6 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 22 in the Community Room. We’re asking that each team designate a captain and register (free of charge) via this Eventbrite link so we will know how many teams we’ll have. Only the captain needs to register! Good luck, teams!
