January events planned at the Arcanum Public Library

ARCANUM – It’s a brand new year, and the Arcanum Public Library can help patrons get off on the right foot.

Individuals may come in to find a book to help get organized, start an exercise routine, plan healthy meals, learn a new hobby and lots more. Patrons can utilize the computers to start genealogical research or work on homework. They also can read or find a movie to watch during a cold spell.

The library has several programs planned for January.

StoryTime for preschoolers is held at 10 a.m. Tuesdays. Children listen to stories, sing songs, make a craft and more.
