Who’s ready to paint? We’ve got a fun “Paint @ the Library” adult painting class coming up this Saturday, April 22, at 12:30 p.m. You’ll get the chance to learn some new painting techniques as we paint a bright and cheerful pop-art inspired sunflower that will make you smile every time you see it.

Want to do something awesome with the kids? Bring them to our monthly Lego Day on Monday, April 24, at 4 p.m. and let them build something fun that we will display until our next Lego Day.

Every Tuesday at 4 p.m. we have a great storytime for the little ones, with engaging stories and cute craft projects related to the story. It’s a lot of fun, so make sure to bring in your kids for this afterschool program. This Tuesday, April 25, at 4 p.m. we will be quacking up with a duck-themed storytime. Next Tuesday, May 2, we will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo.

Our next “Teen Scene” program will be on Saturday, May 6, at 12:30 p.m. and we’ll be getting into some cool video games. Your teens and older kids will be able to play against new people and make new friends as they play fun games.

The Jenkins County Memorial Library Board will be meeting on Wednesday, April 19, at 10:30 a.m. at the library. The Screven-Jenkins Regional Library Board will be meeting at 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 4, at the Screven County Library.

New at the library – “Fate of Flames” by Sara Raughley. When the Phantoms, massive beasts of shadows and nightmares, first came to attack mankind, four girls, the Effigies, rose to defend the world. Each possesses the power of one of the classical elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. With time, the world developed technologies to defend itself. The Effigies, no longer needed as defenders against the Phantoms, are now celebrities. But a human traitor has destroyed the defenses of New York, and four girls who want nothing to do with one another are all that stand between humanity and utter destruction.

Well, that’s all for now – see you at the library!
