Looking for a new spring activity?  Consider joining the Walk and Talk Book Club which begins Wednesday April 5th at 9 AM.  Walkers will meet and talk about books while walking along historic Main Street and following the bike path.  All walkers and readers are invited whether you are just beginning or a walking trailblazer.  Enjoy the outdoors as we exercise our mind and bodies.  Each month we will have a suggested read or will talk about books we are currently reading.  Meet us on Main Street at the front of the library.

Jean Codega brings her card making skills to the library on Wednesday April 5th from 12-2 PM for the Adult Crafternoon program.  Make a lovely Easter card or a flower themed spring card with the master paper crafter.  All materials are supplied.  Sign up today as space is limited.

April is National Poetry Month and the Swansea Public Library will be celebrating with several activities during the month.  Check out our calendar.  On Wednesday April 5th, poets and poetry lovers are invited to attend an Evening of Poetry at the Library  from 7-8 PM.  Share original poems or poems from a favorite poet.  

On Thursday, April 6th at 2:00 PM, Simply Done: The Recipe and Coupon Club will meet to share and swap recipes.  Join this group of frugal foodies as they continue to work on swapping and sharing recipes, and work  on the 350th Cookbook.  A new club event will be Top of the Food Chain where we test 4 types of common market items and find the best one.  We will also be planning April events.
