April is shaping up to be a busy month at the “Q.”
Next week, Q.B. Boydstun Public Library is one of 700 libraries across the country participating in Money Smart Week @ your library, according to the American Library Association.
We have two noon programs planned for next week. Monday, Virginia Stanley, area coordinator for the Community Nutrition Education Program from the OSU Extension Office, will present, “Plan, Shop and Eat on a Budget.”
April 8, Fort Gibson’s Edward Jones Financial Adviser, Mark Young, will present “Retirement by Design.” While many people don’t think about retirement planning until they are just a few years away from retirement, savvy young people begin planning for retirement while they are years away from actually retiring. So, this program is for all ages.
Refreshments will be served at both of these noon programs.
Also, just a reminder that April 9 will be the last day for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) to be at the library. They are at the library from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Services are provided on a first come- first served basis.
This is a great service that VITA offers every year and another way to be “money smart.”
Thursday morning during regular story time and Thursday afternoon after school we will be doing “money smart” activities for kids, also.
The following week, April 14 through the 19 is National Library Week. During this week we will give a way a keychain library card to anyone who can identify our “mystery historical figure.”
We are looking for a few people to participate in a book discussion on Charles Portis’ book “True Grit.” The book discussion will be held April 30 at noon. If you are interested in participating, come into the library and sign up at the circulation desk.
See you soon at the “Q”!
