I know I’ve mentioned how much I love our library system before – several times – but wow, they have taken the cake on programs for the next three months. I’m so excited!
I dropped by the Grandview branch today to return a few books, and pick up the ones on hold. It is a rare week that goes by that I don’t have something checked out or waiting for me. On the way out I saw the latest Beyond the Books (the quarterly list of classes that Mid-Continent Public Library hosts) and I snatched it up.
I cannot tell you how much I look forward to getting it! It makes looking up interesting classes a snap since it is divided into different sections – Adult Programs, Family Programs, Teen Programs, and more.
I go through it like I did the Scholastic News in primary school, eagerly circling my wish lists of classes (like I would the books I hoped to get as a child), and then I sit down at my computer and begin to figure out what I can squeeze in where. It’s tough, there are so many good classes to take!
I found and scheduled thirty-six classes over the next four months!
There are cooking classes…writing and editing classes…historical classes…and tons of kid-oriented classes/events for the holidays and more.
The only thing that made me sad is that I didn’t see anything expressly for homeschoolers. I had read a while back that they were considering canceling homeschool programs. I didn’t hear any more afterwards. Did they cancel them? Inquiring minds want to know!
No matter what – many of the programs offered can certainly help supplement your homeschool learning. I don’t know what I would do without MCPL!
