Poetry
April is National Poetry Month. "Like" our Facebook page, Stanley Community Library, to see poetry posts throughout the month. We have a decent selection of poetry books available for check out, as well. John Phillips will continue his Cheap Champagne lecture series with a poetry participation session on Wednesday, April 23 at 6:30. Come by and share your favorite poem or just listen. Original poetry and old favorites will be shared.
Programs
We appreciate trustee Sylvia Hamilton for holding twice monthly knitting circles throughout the winter. Knitting circle will continue next fall. Game nights will also start up again next fall, with staff member Phil Enright. These programs helped relieve winter doldrums.

We're getting our spring and summer program schedule ready. Have a great idea for a library program? Let us know, and we'll do our best to make it happen.

Upcoming events
We have weeded our audio selection down to CD's only. There are several audio books available for downloading to your personal device available at http://idahodigital.lib.overdrive.com. You will need your library card number to check out these audio books. New audiobooks on CD include Unleashed, an Andy Carpenter mystery, by David Rosenfelt, After I'm Gone by Laura Lippman, Still Life With Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen, Killer by Jonathon Kellerman, George Washington's Secret Six: The Spy Ring That Saved The American Revolution by Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger, and An Officer and a Spy by Robert Harris.

Now that all the audio cassettes are off the shelves, we've made room to start a DVD collection. Do you have gently used DVD's that are gathering dust on your shelves? Donate them to the library and we'll store them for you! You can always check it out if you'd like to see it again. We hope to have a small collection ready for check out by the end of May.
