Kewanna-Union Township Public Library

Our Mission:

The Kewanna Union Township Public Library is the center of community life, offering opportunities for people to learn, grow, and succeed.


Nancy Hudson, Purdue Extension/Fulton County HHS Educator, will be presenting “Mindfulness & Stress” on Wednesday, October 17 @ 11:00.

This Mindfulness session helps you rewind, focus, and tackle stress.  Mindfulness simply means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment.  Learn how mindfulness can help you de-stress and learn to better enjoy all aspects of life!

 

 

Kewanna Public Library will celebrate Teen Read Week (October 7-13, 2018) with programs spotlighting all the great resources and activities available at the library and to encourage teens from around the area to read for their enjoyment. Thousands of libraries, schools and bookstores across the country will hold similar events centered on this year’s theme, “It’s Written in the Stars: READ!”

Teen Read Week is a time to celebrate reading for fun while encouraging teens to take advantage of reading in all its forms —books, magazines, e-books, audiobooks and more! It is also a great opportunity to encourage teens to become regular library users.

In recent years, many families have had to adapt to make do with less as a result of the economy. Teen Read Week is a great opportunity for teens and their families to learn about all the free services and resources the library offers.  The library also offers a safe and supervised space for adolescents to engage in creative, educational activities with caring adults and mentors.

Moreover, according to Programming Librarian Linda Ruhl, strong reading skills are more critical than ever because they translate into better performance at school and better preparedness for careers. This is why it is important to take advantage of Teen Read Week and show teens that reading is a fun and relaxing activity they can do for free.

Stop in @ Kewanna Public Library and join in our celebration of teens and Teen Read Week!
