Hancock Library News

The Viking Library system has hired me (through Legacy funding) to teach an accordion bookmaking class throughout the Viking system. It is a three-hour class and is called "The Artful Librarian's Awesome Accordion Books". It has been very fun visiting all the different libraries in all the different towns. Many of them I have never seen before. Perham has a beautiful library, Alexandria's library is also pretty amazing in size, and Pelican Rapids library is also wonderful. This week I go to New York Mills and Elbow Lake. I am about half done with this trek around the Viking system and have met lots of fun and creative people. The only library without a class scheduled is Hancock. If there are people interested in this class I can certainly set one up here also. The classes have typically been scheduled on an evening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. or a Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., so if you are interested let me know.

April 10-16th is National Library week. Libraries are where stories are told, read and celebrated every day so come on in and celebrate with us.

We have a number of new movies. "Waiting for Superman" (a documentary about America's school system) "Tangled", "The Tourist", "The Switch", and "How Do You Know".

New books by Alice Hoffman, "The Red Garden" , Lisa Genova "Left Neglected", and "Leaving" by Karen Kingsbury,

Thank you to the Hancock Lions Club for donating money for our ebooks that will be available later this year on Nook and iPod or MP3 players. This will be a great help for people with vision problems. Will let you know all the details when I do.

Anyone who doesn't think shoes aren't important has never read Cinderella .
