WHAT'S HAPPENING AT MEUSER LIBRARY IN THE MONTHS AHEAD

 

 

“Any String Goes”

Our knit, crochet and fiber crafting group meets every Wednesday at 4 pm. If you knit, crochet, spin, sew, embroider, etc., bring your current project and sit and chat with us. If you would like to learn to knit or crochet, you are welcome to come and give it a go. We will have some yarn and needles available for practicing and some experienced crafters to show you the ropes, and the “strings”. Hope to see you there!

 

The Meuser Book Club meets the third Tuesday of every month at 2:00 p.m.  Book titles are chosen by our members in advance.  If interested, please call the Library at 610-258-3040 or email us at meuserlib.adult@rcn.com. Weather permitting, we meet in person here at the Library under the tent in our backyard.  Otherwise, ZOOM meeting instructions will be available that morning. We always welcome new members!

 

Meuser’s StoryTimes are Back!

Our popular children’s story time hour will be returning in May every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. Registration will be required due to social distancing requirements. Space is limited, so reserve your space soon! Call the Library for more information: 610-258-3040.

 

HOOPLA HAS LAUNCHED!

 

At long last, Meuser Library has launched HOOPLA, a library streaming platform.  All patrons with current library accounts in good standing who live in the Wilson Area School District are eligible. Hoopla is a groundbreaking digital media service that allows you to borrow movies, music, audiobooks, ebooks, comics and TV shows to enjoy on your computer, tablet, or phone – and even your TV! With no waiting, titles can be streamed immediately, or downloaded to phones or tablets for offline enjoyment later. There are hundreds of thousands of titles to choose from, with more being added daily. Hoopla is like having your public library at your fingertips “anytime, anywhere”! Currently, each patron is allowed three (3) borrowing transactions per month.
