Hello From Moyer

Taylor Swift or Emily Dickinson?!

In celebration of National Poetry Month, we’ve made you a game. Can you tell the difference between a Taylor Swift lyric and an Emily Dickinson poetry line? It’s harder than you may think. (Ask Jess who managed 2 out of 6!) Visit Moyer and try your hand.

Eclipse Glasses Recycling

Looking to recycle your eclipse glasses? Drop them off at Moyer between now and April 27th. We'll mail them into a collection site approved by Astronomers Without Borders. 😎

Make Paper Snails

Drop by Moyer’s Kid Craft Table this week to make snails. These cute rolled paper mollusks are sure to bring smiles. We have a variety of paper colors and crayons. Choose bright colors, natural colors, or both. Be sure to show the people at the circ desk before you go! We know you’ll snail it!

Tiny Art Contest

Let’s make art this spring! Middle school kids, high school teens, and adults of all ages are all invited to join our Tiny Art Contest. It’s simple: Take home a tiny canvas. Decorate it however you like. Return it to the library. 

Pick up a free canvas starting April 1st. It must be completed and returned to the library by Tuesday, April 30th.

Canvases will be displayed at the library. Moyer’s board, staff, and patrons will select favorites. Each favorite will earn a prize. We cannot wait to see what you come up with!

Dollar a Bag Returns With Audiobooks!

Starting April 14th, our dollar a bag sale shelf returns! Currently it includes many audiobooks recently weeded from our section. Shop and fill a bag of books and books on CD for only $1! You never know what you may find between the donated items and books weeded from our collection. All money goes towards library programming.

Clothespin Crafts

Come create dragonflies, caterpillars, bunnies, and more at Moyer! Start with a plain clothespin and then embellish. We’ve stocked the table with fluffy poms, sticky gems, pipe cleaners, and colorful markers. Follow one of the provided ideas or design your own. All ages welcome!

Moyer Book Club

The Moyer District Library Book Club meets the first Thursday of each month at 1:00PM. For April, they are reading Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths. All are welcome to join; no sign up is necessary. You may pick up a print copy at the circ desk. Stranger Diaries is also available as an ebook and audiobook via Libby and as an ebook on Cloud Library.

Clare Cassidy is no stranger to murder. A high school English teacher specializing in the Gothic writer R. M. Holland, she teaches a course on it every year. But when one of Clare's colleagues and closest friends is found dead, with a line from R. M. Holland's most famous story, "The Stranger," left by her body, Clare is horrified to see her life collide with the storylines of her favorite literature.
