Library working on exciting projects

Published 1:47 pm Sunday, April 22, 2007

Your library is always looking for new program opportunities for the public. Our latest acquisition is a movie license, which allows us to show movies to the general public legally.

We have several new program ideas in the works.

The first is our Teen Animé Club which is open to area teens ages 13 and up. We meet one Saturday a month to talk, eat, draw and watch Japanese animated films.

Call the library and ask for more information and to register.

From 2 to 4 p.m. today, we’ll show An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore’s documentary about global warming.

The movie will be followed by a discussion about our relationship with the earth, our responsibilities for keeping it healthy for future generations and how we can clean up our neighborhoods.

During the Summer Library Program for Teens, we’ll be showing old Sherlock Holmes films to coincide with our theme, You Never Know @ Your Library.

In August, to celebrate Alfred Hitchcock’s birthday, we’ll have an afternoon film festival for the whole family.

Watch for these upcoming events and help us make this new program a great success.

Looking for artists and collectors

When you come in the lobby of the Library, you see display windows on each side. We are always looking for local artists and collectors who would like to exhibit their artwork and collections. Usually a display stays up for a month, and we try to relate it to books in our collection. It’s a good way to encourage reading, as well as showing off our local talent. Please contact us if you would be interested.

Volunteers needed

We are still looking for volunteers for our Digital History Project— a project to get old Natchez newspapers available online. The only qualification for volunteers is a familiarity with computers.
