Celebrate Mother's Day with us at Stark County District Library. This week they are several Mother's Day themed programs scheduled for you to spend some quality time with your mom, your grandmother, your aunt, or another special woman in your life. Get into the Spring spirit by picking up a new plant for your garden at one of our Plant Swaps, or get to know your Kindle eReader a little better (just in time for Summer Reading) at Kindles and Downloadable eBooks.
As always, each program below is linked to the Stark County District Library Events calendar, where you'll get more information about the program (such as the time the event is offered), and have the opportunity to register online or by phone to attend.
On Wednesday, May 9 you can swap coupons and strategies for saving money with other frugal coupon-clippers at North Branch's Coupon Club. Don't forget DeHoff Memorial Branch's Coupon Saving Club meets on Wednesdays as well. Get the brands you want at reduced prices.
Do you have a Kindle? Get to know your Kindle and how you can use the Ohio eBook Project through the library to download great books for free--all in time for Summer Reading at Kindles and Downloadable eBooks. This fun and informative program will be offered at Perry Sippo Branch on Wednesday, May 9.
