Library News and Notes — Upcoming Library Events

With Spring, there’s always some amount of busy-ness – be it gardening, kids’ sports, or even spring cleaning. Naturally, the library has books and other resources to answer any questions you may have about these topics, but the Library also has a number of exciting activities coming up as well.

During Teen Tuesday – Anime Club, April 19 at 6:30, students aged 13-17 will watch favorite videos, learn to draw anime, preview new graphic novels and manga, and learn about Japanese culture.

There will be snacks and a drawing for a prize at the end of the night. Be sure to register.

Join us Saturday, Apr 16, at 2:30pm, for Hemingway’s St. Louis. Dr. Andrew Theising shares how Saint Louisans shaped Hemingway’s life and legacy. Theising will discuss how Hemingway’s life was colored by his time in Saint Louis and with those who call Saint Louis home.

Dr. Theising lives in St. Louis and teaches political science at SIUE. Since 2010, he has also been a visiting
professor at Washington University’s Brown School of Social Work.

Theising is also the author, editor, or collaborator on five books, including the award-winning book Made in USA: East St. Louis (Virginia Publishing, 2003) – the first comprehensive scholarly account of East St. Louis, Illinois, and companion book to the Emmy-Award-winning public television documentary of the same name. Please register as space is limited.

On Thursday, April 21 from 1 to 2pm, join us for a fun afternoon as Jacque Dearborn Carr of Cambridge House leads us in an hour of bingo! Winners will receive vouchers, each good for two dollars off from the library’s book sale area.

Light refreshments will be provided. This is a free event and open to the general public, but is intended for adults.

Do you have questions about Medicare? Get answers to prepare yourself. On Thursday, April 21 at 6 pm in the 1st floor community room, join us for this free Medicare Q&A seminar presented by Jon Burgmann of the Burgmann Insurance Group.

Jon has over 12 years of experience in the health insurance industry and has conducted Medicare education seminars at O’Fallon and other local libraries for years. He also teaches Medicare classes at local universities.

This event is not a sales presentation and specific personal recommendations will not be discussed. You do not have to be an O’Fallon Public Library cardholder to attend.
