January at the Arcanum Public Library


ARCANUM — The Arcanum Public Library has plenty of things to keep the community busy during the cold month of January. In addition to finding books and movies to take home, patrons can check out STEM KITS and board games. Adults are able to check out mobile hotspots and the library telescope. The library has newer children’s computers filled with hundreds of activities and games to play. The genealogy section has been improved to make it easier for patrons to find what they need.

The very popular adult Winter Reading Challenge begins this month, and runs through the end of March. Adults can come in to pick up log sheets to record books they read or listen to. Drawings for prizes are held at the end of each month, with a grand prize being awarded at the end of the program.
