“Chill out” with us this afternoon as we show Ice Age: Continental Drift at the library. The show will begin at
2:30 p.m. It runs for 88 minutes and
is rated PG.

Tuesday will mark the return of the Polk Works Mobile One-Stop Bus. It will be outside our library from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. The unit allows for individuals to search for jobs online, prepare resumes and submit applications for open positions. All of their services are free of charge. For information, call 863-508-1100.

Jan. 18 is Pooh Day, the birthday of Pooh’s creator A.A. Milne. We plan to celebrate it a little early. Bring your favorite stuffed bear and help us celebrate. Learn how Pooh came to be, make a party hat, play “Sting the Bee” and “Pin the Tail on Eeyore” and watch a Pooh cartoon. Refreshments will be served. The program will be Tuesday, Jan. 15 from 4-5:30 p.m. and is designed for 6-8 year olds.

Join us for story times this week with Miss Melissa. Wednesday at 10 a.m., for 3-5 year olds, is a winter themed story time complete with stories, finger plays, music and films.

Thursday at 10 a.m., for 18 months to 2 years, is Book Babies featuring nursery rhymes, finger plays, music and bubbles.

Any teens feeling down now that school has started back? Come Thursday afternoon to watch “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days.” The movie beings at 4:30 p.m. and refreshments will be served.

The mad scientists are back at it. This month is Blubber Science. Experimenting will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday. This program is designed for 9-12 year olds and we do ask that you pre-register.

Please keep in mind we will be closed Saturday, Jan. 19 and Monday, Jan. 21 in observance of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. We will re-open Tuesday at 9 a.m.
