Reading is sweet

Posted February 05, 2014 in Adel, Community Featured

Our winter Family Reading Program is in full swing, and we are having so much fun helping people beat the winter blues with great books.

There is still time to sign up your family and enter the contest for a chance to win some great prizes. This year’s grand prize is a one-night stay at the Ramada Tropics Resort in Urbandale which includes a room for four and passes to their indoor water park.

The grand finale of our program is our own version of Cupcake Wars. We’ll have all the ingredients you need to decorate your cupcakes and enter them into the war on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 6 p.m. Stay tuned to for the announcement of our panel of Adel celebrity judges.

We have two fantastic events in February that are sure to be a great time.

On Tuesday, Feb. 11, from 4 to 6 p.m. we’ll be playing board games for all ages, including Bingo, Connect Four, Sorry!, Dominion, Settlers of Catan and many others.

Then on Thursday, Feb. 20, we’re going to forget it is winter and have a beach party with fun summer- themed games and smoothies.

Children’s activities are a great escape from these Arctic blasts.  In addition to our regular weekly activities we have four special kids’ events in February:

Our Lego League is back and will gather together to build all kinds of creative things on Monday, Feb. 3, at 4 p.m. Miss Laura has added new Duplos and a Lego table since the last time we met, and we can’t wait to play.

The library will have an Early Out Movie for all school-aged children in February. On Wednesday, Feb. 26, we’ll watch “Despicable Me 2.” We watch the movies on our big screen at 2 p.m., and popcorn will be provided.

Have you ever needed a tool you really don’t want to buy or hosted an event and wished you had just one more table? Come and get some stuff. Our new Stuff Shelf has an ever-growing amount of stuff you can check out including; tools, cake pans, puzzles, Legos and so much more. Stop by the library and see what stuff you might need.

Your library will be closed in observance of President’s Day on Monday, Feb. 17. Information about the Adel Public Library and all of our clubs, events and programs is available on our website at, or you can follow us on our Facebook page or on Twitter at
