Out of the cold at NPL

In February, after months of cold, dreary weather, many of us start to feel cabin fever set in.  But there is good news! Here at the Newark Public Library, we have many programs coming up to help you get out of your house and escape both the cabin fever and the cold.  We offer programs for all ages.
Each week, our Youth Services staff will offer their always-amazing Tuesday morning Story-time, featuring read and sing-a-longs, and, of course, a good amount of dancing to really shake off that chill. Tech Night and Little Engineers programs on Monday evenings offer children and teens some hands-on experience and fun with technology.  Other programs for children and teens this month include a Teen Cooking Challenge, Minecraft, Legos, and Pokemon clubs, After School Snack, and a showing of the very popular Minions movie during the winter school break.

We offer adults both practical programs, like weekly resume help, and fun programs, like our Mahjongg, Chess, and Cards in the Library programs.  On the second and fourth Monday of every month, our Adult Services Librarian, Graham Tedesco-Blair will offer Gadget Guide — an open Q&A session about topics relating to computers, iPads, smart phones, tablets, and more.  You can craft with Becky Sloane on Monday, February 1st, or attend one of our book discussion programs: Friends of the Library Author Luncheon on February 12, or “The Psychic Highway: How the Erie Canal Changed American History” presented by author Michael Keene on March 2nd
