These friends had fun during Story Time at the North Adams Library.

The Adams County Public Library is celebrating National Library Week from April 10 – 16. This annual national event celebrates how libraries transform their communities by offering everyone free access to information, entertainment, and education. Stop by your local library, and share with us why your library is important to you. Don’t miss your chance to pick up a free library bag featuring the Adams County Public Library’s logo, while supplies last. Need to replace a lost or aging library card? Now through April 16, replacement cards are free of charge.

From April 11 – 16, the library is holding a Food for Fines drive. For each canned food item you donate at the library, we’ll cancel up to $3 of your overdue fines. All food items collected will be given to local food pantries. Donations are also welcome. Help support your neighbors in need, and erase your overdue fines at the same time. Food for Fines does not cancel fees for lost or damaged items.

Now through April 29, come visit our 3-D Printer Showcase at your local library. Back by popular demand, the 3-D printer and 3-Doodler borrowed from SWON Libraries will tour each Adams County Public Library during April. A 3-D printer uses computer software to create complex 3-D objects by printing layers of superheated plastic filament. 3-D printing technology allows businesses and individuals to create any 3-D object you can imagine and design. Come try 3-D modeling for yourself with a handheld 3-Doodler, a 3-D pen that allows you to create 3-D shapes by drawing freehand. Stop by to watch the 3-D printer in action, or call ahead for an appointment to have a custom 3-D object printed, subject to availability.

Guiding Ohio Online AmeriCorps technology trainer Melissa will host the 3-D printer demonstrations. The 3-D Printer Showcase will be at the West Union Library April 11 through 14, the North Adams Library on April 16, 21, and 25, the Manchester Library April 18 through 20, and the Peebles Library April 26 through 29. For more information, call 937-544-2591.

Now at the North Adams Library, teens and tweens are invited to submit their original artwork to our Teen Art Contest. Teens ages 11 – 19 are invited to submit their original art, including drawing, painting, photography, film, or mixed media to the North Adams Library by Saturday, April 16. Please attach your name, date, and artwork category to the back of your artwork when you bring it to the library. All submissions will be displayed in the library from April 18 through 23, and the public is invited to vote for their favorite entry in each category. Winners will be announced Monday, April 25. For more information, call Julia at 937-386-2556.

The Manchester Library is celebrating our patrons during Patron Appreciation Day on Wednesday, April 13. Stop by the Manchester Library from 1- 3 p.m. to share refreshments and visit with library staff. We’d love to see you there.
