Spring brings classic mysteries for young readers at Alliance library

Posted Mar 30, 2021 3:17 PM

Alliance – April at the Alliance Public Library includes our Story Time weekly gatherings, for children ages 3-6, on Tuesdays at 10 a.m. and Thursdays at 1 p.m.

Story Time on March 30 and April 1 will also include an Easter Egg Hunt for participating children! Our themes for the month include Hans Christian Andersen, Rain Showers and Spring Flowers, Favorite Foods, Earth Day/Recycling and Terrific Trees.

Visit the Alliance Public Library website for great information about our library, including Story Time Read-a-long videos produced by Alliance Public Library staff. We really enjoy putting these videos together and it’s a great way to share reading at home.

The first publication of Nancy Drew mysteries happened on April 28, 1930 with “The Secret of the Old Clock, “The Hidden Staircase” and “The Bungalow Mystery”.

To celebrate this 90-year milestone, the Alliance Public Library will host a reading contest featuring our Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mysteries, authored by Carolyn Keene and Franklin W. Dixon, respectively. Grades four through eight can participate by checking out and reading any Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys mystery, beginning April 15, then sign up for a grand prize drawing which will be on April 30th at 3 p.m.

For more information, please contact Cynthia Horn, Children’s and Youth Services Librarian at 762-1387.

Great news for our adult patrons. After a long hiatus due to COVID-19, we have resumed book club meetings.

Our book club selection for the month of April is Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes. Our next meeting will be April 27th, 2021 at 1:00 p.m.

If you would like to be added to the book club email list, please email Emily Nelson at [email protected] or call 308-762-1387.
