[ARCHIVED] Reading and More in April at the Churchill County Library

Mindy Nettifee

So. Much. Happening. Stop by the Churchill County Library next month and take advantage of its activities for all ages.

Read

“1,000 Books Before Kindergarten” encourages youngsters to read age-appropriate books before entering school. Book titles are suggested and offered by library staff. Sign-ups accepted at any time.

In-person “Storytime with Ms. Jes” offered Wednesdays and Thursdays at 11 a.m. Children’s Librarian Jeslyn MacDiarmid reads picture books to children and offers a craft to accompany most stories. Each session is recorded and posted to the library’s YouTube account for on-demand viewing at your convenience.

Reading with Rover takes place on April 14 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Children read books to dogs to improve their reading skills and confidence in reading to a decidedly captive audience.

Learn

Learn about 3D printing at drop-in participatory workshops on April 6 and 20 from 3 to 5 p.m. Using the library’s 3D printer, make objects, both useful and pretty, and see about this popular technology. 

3D printing will also be featured during the STEAM session on April 22 from 1:30 to 3 p.m.

Knitting Club meets on Tuesdays at 10 a.m. and Thursdays at 4 p.m. All are welcome from the beginner to advanced skilled folks.

Have a problem with your computer or smartphone? Head over the William N. Pennington Life Center on Fridays from 10 to 11 a.m. and get answers from Technical Services Librarian Joe Salsman, an expert in all things technology! 

Explore

Writer’s Group meets Tuesdays from at 5 p.m. Discover what area writers are inspired by and working on and bring your own manuscript for inspiration.

Check out the Hidden Cave Virtual Reality experience by making an appointment to don the headset and see Churchill County’s Hidden Cave from a whole new perspective. Bonus: no guano smell!

Drop-in for a VR session on Tuesdays from 3:15 to 5 p.m. 

Enjoy

Join the library, local youth artists and the Karma Box project on Sunday, April 3 from noon to 3 p.m. at the library. Make a non-perishable food donation to the Karma Box or a cash donation to the Churchill Library Association and receive a bowl of soup, a slice of bread and you keep the hand-made bowl. 

Empty Bowls is a movement by artists to raise awareness for hunger in the community. The event is sponsored by Churchill County High School Ceramics Class students who made and donated the bowls, the Fallon Chamber of Commerce Karma Box project and the Churchill Library Association.

On April 30, the library joins forces with the Churchill Arts Council to bring poet Mindy Nettifee, PhD, to the Oats Park Art Center from 5 to 7 p.m. for a poetry reading.

April’s featured artists are “Flying Artists,” a group of Fallon and Fernley artists working in watercolor, oil, pen-and-ink, acrylic and pastels who have their paintings on display throughout the library.

Open six days a week

Library hours of operation are Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed on Sundays and major holidays.

Call (775)423-7581 for more information on any of the activities above. The Churchill County Library is located at 553 South Maine Street in Fallon.
