NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK

Stop by the library next week (April 4 - April 9) to enter our raffle for a library bag of goodies, pick up some Take & Make crafts for kids, teens & adults, and help us celebrate National Library Week!

FREE COFFEE AND SNACKS ALL WEEK!

------------------------------------------

VISIT ALL THE RHODE ISLAND LIBRARIES!

We have compiled a fun activity for patrons of all ages!


Starting Monday, the Exeter Public Library will offer a Rhode Island Libraries Passport Book that lists all the libraries in the state and lets you track the ones you've visited! There's even a map that indicates where the libraries are located in the state. This is something we've wanted to create for a long time and now it's here!

------------------------------------------

VIRTUAL JOB FAIR KITS

In collaboration with the Exeter Social Services, we're offering Virtual Job Fair kits. On Monday, April 4th, we'll have 20 kits available in the library for anyone who is looking for employment. The kits include resume building and interview resources, library printing coupons and some other items to assist you.

------------------------------------------

TAKE & MAKE CRAFT KITS

New Take & Make Craft Kits geared towards ages 4-9 are available
each Monday at 10am! Stop by the library and grab a kit while supplies last!

THE LIBRARY CONNECTION (TLC)

Join us on Tuesday, April 6th at 7pm for the first gathering of our monthly patron roundtable - we are calling it The Library Connection (TLC)! This first meeting will be on Zoom, but we hope to have future meetings outside on the library lawn with social distancing. Please join us to share your thoughts, ideas and skills!


TLC is a library patron group that will work to create new community partnerships, engaging programming and provide feedback to make the library the best it can be. TLC will generally meet once a month unless working on a specific project or program. We understand that schedules are busy, so commitment to the TLC is on an individual basis. This group aims to be the best of the library community working together to bring joy, beauty and laughter to the Exeter Public Library!
