COLUMN: Hustle and bustle increases as school year comes to close

— The school year is hurrying toward the end full of projects, concerts, picnics, tests and of course graduation with all the attendant hoopla. I know I’m behind on my plans and I doubt I’m alone but take a breath and a stroll down to the library. Even at the busiest of times we have the resources to help you make it through even if it’s only a moment of respite or some entertainment for the kids while you get the chores out of the way. Please note, the library will be closed Sunday and Monday of Memorial Day Weekend on May 27 and 28.

Stitch in time saves minds

Working with your hands can provide artistic expression and stress relief, so join our In Stitches evening crew at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 23, for a little of both.

Ode to organization

Organization saves time in the end. Learn how to organize your computer files to streamline work and personal projects, or learn how to organize your music files for maximum pleasure. Wired Wednesday’s hands-on workshops help you with these tasks and much more. Each class is held at 1:30 p.m., has a limit of 10 students and registration is required. May classes include: Organizing Your Computer Files (May 23) and Introduction to Music Devices (May 30).

Writers Workshop

Whether you write poetry, novels, essays or screenplays it is always nice to have a second opinion. Local writers support each other and share their progress at 7 p.m. alternate Tuesdays (May 29).

That’s all for now folks. Tune in next week for info on June happenings and a preview of our summer plans.
