ARCANUM — It’s that time of year; winter is trying it’s best to hang on, and spring is lurking in the shadows. Head to the Arcanum Public Library to pick up a great book or movie, or bring home a board game for the family to play. The library has STEM building kits and pre-loaded Playaway Launchpads to check out. There are also plenty of activities and programs planned for February and March.

Story Time for children up to preschool age is on Thursday mornings at 10. Kids hear stories, sing songs, and make a craft. No registration is needed for this drop-in program. If school is cancelled due to weather, there will be no Story Time that day.

On Monday, Feb. 12, there will be a Family BINGO night from 6-7:30 p.m. Bring the family for a great evening of BINGO, prizes, snacks, and fun. No registration is needed for this event.
