Happy New Year! Wow, “Your library is starting the year off with a bang”!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PBTDL. Your library is having a huge celebration starting in January. The 120 year Celebration Committee and Staff are having a fantastic time creating events for YOU all throughout 2024. It could be as simple as a lot of giveaways each month or it could be a scavenger hunt each month. Inside my “corner” you will find a clue for January’s kickoff and in each month after that, there will be another clue for you to solve. A total 12 clues with be given throughout the year for different locations. Once you think you have it solved for January, please bring into the library a picture showing the item with you in it or email it to me at email@example.com. January’s giveaway is really looking back at where the library has been located in the last 120 years. I hope you enjoy taking a look at where your library started, who started it and where it is today.
As always, our Story Time will return on Tuesday, January 9th along with the Viking Lego Club returning the same day. If you have not signed up yet, it is not too late. Call and we can get you started.
I thank you for your continued support of the library. This community makes me so HAPPY!
The Friends of the Potterville Benton Township District Library have puchased some new signs in honor of PBTDL turning 120 years old this year. Please feel free to stop in and pick up one free sign to display in your yard.
As mentioned above, we will be holding a year long scavenger hunt throughout the city of Potterville.
We will announce a clue each month in our monthly e-newsletter. Find the clue. Find the item/location. Take a selfie with it. Bring it in to the library. It's that easy! Patrons who complete each month successfully will be entered in to a grand prize drawing. On your mark, get set....GO! (*The front desk will save your form for safe keeping.)
Great news! We have teamed up with Impression 5 Science Center!! We now have a day pass that you can check out for a family of 4. Your family is going to love it!
In case you missed it, we had a very beautiful tree all decked out at the Potter Park Zoo during their Wonderland of Lights, donated by the Friends of the Library. Thank you to Potter Park Zoo for partnering up with us this year. Zoo passes are available for patrons to check out, so treat your family to a fun filled day at the zoo.
If you haven't had the chance to do so, you'll want to download our Librista app to your phone or tablet.
This nice feature lets you know which library books you have out, when they're due back AND you could even be the 1st person to reserve one of our newest arrivals!
