Spring break at the library

Selma students out on spring break next week can fill their uninterrupted playtime with a little bit of a variety courtesy of the Selma-Dallas County Public Library.

The library’s children section will host three programs as part of their “Spring Break Fun.”

“Monday morning at 9:30 and 10:30 will kick off with just for fun programs,” Library Director Becky Nichols said. “This week’s activities will be a preview of the summer program called ‘Read and Recycle.’”

Tuesday, kids can learn about King Midas and his ability to turn anything and everything he touched into gold. The library will hold a puppet show of this legendary tale of warning at 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. The show is expected to last 30 minutes.

“Thursday is when we have our arts and crafts open house,” Nichols said. “This will go from two from four p.m. and it’s a time for kids to create different things.”

Wednesday and Friday will not have any programs for children due to already scheduled events in the library.

“We hope a lot of people can attend, but we do ask parents to stay in the library if they bring their child,” Nichols said. “This is just for anything that could arise. We want everyone to have fun spring break.”
