Winter Warm-up is our annual wintertime adult reading program. Every year, around mid-January to the end of February, we encourage adults to participate in this program for a chance to win a prize. The requirements to be entered in the prize drawing are to read four library books (e-books and audiobooks also count), fill out a reading log sheet, and turn in the completed log sheet before the end of the program.
Geared towards the children, but open to all ages. All you have to do is sign up and read the required number of age appropriate books in the allotted program timeframe. Be a good role model for your kids, they will read more if they see that you enjoy reading, too! There’s a party with even more goodies at the end of the program.
The Summer Reading Program begins in May and runs through July. The program begins with a kick off party in May and a completion party in July. The Program is available at both Fort Branch and Haubstadt locations.
Join us for an evening of some good old fashioned games in the Activities Room in the Fort Branch Learning Center. This is for adults only and will be hosted on the 3rd Friday every other month from 6:30 – 9:30 pm. We play Dominoes, Card Games and lots of different Board Games. Bring a dessert or snack to share and we provide pizza and drinks. Check out our calendar for the next night of fun!
We have two book clubs at the library! You can sign up for one or both of them, since they meet at different times. Books are chosen each season. Fall season club meetings are held September, October and November. Spring season club meetings are held in January, February, March, and April. Sometimes we offer Summer season club meetings in May, June, and July.
Classic Book Club has been a program at our library for awhile, and used to be called Adult Book Club. This group reads more traditional books and some well-known “classics”. Meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month (during the seasons) at 6 pm in the Fort Branch Activities Room. If you would like to join, please sign up at either location and borrow a book copy!
Modern Book Club is a newer group, and was originally called Young Mom’s Book Club. This group reads more modern books, and the occasional great Young Adult novel. Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month (during the seasons) at 6 pm in the Fort Branch Activities Room. If you would like to join, please sign up at either location and borrow a book copy!
