Opportunities in the Community
RECAP will be hosting the Family Fun Series starting the week of January 26. This is a series of classes for families who have youth between the ages of 10 and 14. Using Strengthening Families, a nationally known program developed by Iowa State University, the 7 week classes emphasize parenting skills for parents, refusal skills for youth, and fun and communication skills for families. This program is for any family who wants more practice and skills to add to their tool chest when it comes to raising their children. Don't wait for problems to happen; learn how to avoid problems!
The Reardan Food Bank will be open
Wednesday, January 14 from 1:30 to 3:00
Thursday, January 29 from 5:30 to 7:00.
Nook and Kindle
Our Nook and Kindle come with some stories already on them. If you are a patron in good standing, you can check one of these out. Try them from the library, before you invest in one for yourself or a loved one.
You can choose to read one of the stories already on them. Or we can download a book of your choice from our Washington Anytime Library.
Check out a Nook or Kindle and discover how these ereaders work.
The librarian is more than happy to help you with the technology!
