What’s happening at the Eden Valley Area Library?
We are back in business and offering some incredible new books. Read about the Dust Bowl in Kristin Hannah’s latest historical novel “The Four Winds,” or check out “Moonlight Child” by Karen McQuestion described as “a gripping … novel that will leave you wondering about your next-door neighbor.” Check out all our new purchases on our website at https://eval22-org.doodlekit.com/.

Tuesday, March 2, is the birthday of a national treasure. Theodor Seuss Geisel is better known as Dr. Seuss. In his honor, it is also National Read Across America Day. Did you know that Dr. Seuss created the word nerd? “The first documented use of the word was in the 1950s book he wrote titled “If I Ran the Zoo” about a boy named Gerald McGrew who visits a zoo and ponders what it would be like if he ran it. So, in a way, Dr. Seuss is partly responsible for nerd culture.” Continuing the celebration, the Storybook Stars monthly theme will be Dr. Seuss and Friends. The literacy packets will be available for pickup Monday, March 1. So, prepare your “Green Eggs and Ham” and reserve a packet for your toddler by calling the library at (320) 453-4434.
Start planning your garden. The Eden Valley Area Library, through our Seed Library, will give out seeds again this spring, starting April 1. There will not be any requirements to get them, the seeds are free, and most are new. The older ones have been tested for germination and should perform well. You can also order for curbside pickup by calling (320) 453-4434 to set up a date and time. At the end of the growing season, gardeners can save heirloom seeds from their plants and return a portion of the seeds to the library. This will not work with hybrid seeds. Mark your calendars. Stop in to pick up your garden seeds and sign up for a drawing for garden tools.
The library is open from 2-5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We are still continuing our COVID protocol. Masks are mandatory, and social distancing is required. Should circumstances change, there will be updated information on our Facebook page, on the door of the library, or on our website at https://eval22-org.doodlekit.com/.
