March 20-26 is jam-packed with fun activities for both adults and kids at the Shelby County Public Library for the county schools’ spring break.
A Master Gardeners’ spring workshop, an Irish roots genealogy class, and creative crafts for toddlers to teens are scheduled.
Special adult events this week include The Book Group @The Bookmark meeting at noon Tuesday at the café at 9 Public Square to discuss “The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit” by Michael Finkel; Finding Your Irish Roots workshop at 7 pm Wednesday in the library Annex; an essential oils and bracelet craft meeting at 2 and 6 pm Thursday in the Annex; and the Shelby County Master Gardeners’ Spring Into Gardening workshop from noon to 4 pm Saturday at the Velma Wortman Morristown Branch, 127 E. Main St., where they will sharpen tools, conduct planting and gardening mini-classes, and offer craft workshops for all ages, while library staff conduct the Seed Swap in the library’s vault.
Youth Services librarians have outdone themselves at Morristown and Shelbyville, with extra craft times for elementary-age students, more storytimes at both branches, teen crafts and a Dungeons & Dragons adventure, plus a brand-new Babies/Toddlers Play Time at 10 am on Friday. Youth activities are too numerous to list here.
