The Lunenburg County Public Library System (LCPLS) will soon celebrate two events that focus on libraries.

According to a press release, National Library Week is April 9-15 and National Book Day is April 23. “Look for displays throughout both branches of LCPLS with books and resources that highlight local libraries and their contributions to communities.”

“Artists Robin Krieger and Gene Barry each have displays at the Victoria location through April. Robin is a Kenbridge resident who is a self-taught artist who creates art journals and other projects using a mixed media technique,” officials said in the release. “Gene is a Victoria resident who paints in watercolors and other mediums and offers a wide variety of subjects in his colorful paintings. Jerry Seamster’s art is still currently on display at the Ripberger branch. Jerry recently gave a short talk to 150 art and photography students at Central High School using his paintings to describe his art and techniques he has picked up in his career.”

The Victoria branch hosts a story time for children ages 4-6 on Thursdays from 11:30 a.m.-noon that is open to the public. Activities include stories read aloud, music, games and dancing. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Tax season is here and both LCPLS locations have 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ federal forms and booklets. There is a limit of one per patron. LCPLS can also help patrons download copies of other tax forms from the internet. Copies are .20 cents per page.

“Earth Day is April 22 and the library will have displays and resources available to celebrate this event. We have easy-reading books for children and crafts and project books for all ages. Books on sustainable farming and gardening are available as well as recycling and energy efficiency.”
