It’s that time of year again, but Swaney Memorial Library’s got you covered! We have both the tax forms and instructions for federal and state, and can print any additional forms you need. These are free of charge and can be picked up during our regular hours of operation. We are so happy to see that Hancock County is doing so well! The library will return to its regular business hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays; 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays; and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays. We will close at noon on Friday, March 12th and will open at noon on Thursday, March 25th. We hope to see you soon! If you know a child 5 years old or younger, you need to sign them up for Swaney Memorial Library’s Spring story hour! There is a one-time fee of $5 to help with the cost of new books and craft supplies. Story hour is a great way to prepare children for early education. We meet for one hour once a week and read stories, make crafts, dance, sing, play games, and socialize with other children and caregivers. Studies have shown that reading to your children from a young age enables them to perform better in school so we take any age child under 5. Story hour will be held at 4:30 p.m. every Wednesday beginning March 3rd. Call 304-564-3471 to register your child today and help start them on a successful educational path. This just in: Repentance Creek, in the Sharpshooter series by Tobias Cole; Luke Jensen Bounty Hunter: Hired Guns, by William W. Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone; All the Devils Are Here, the latest in the Chief Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny; and we also now have the complete Joe Pickett series by C.J. Box. Stop in today and check out one of these exciting new reads. It’s the perfect time of year to cuddle up with a good book!
