The Natchez Festival of Music hosted a One Act Opera, The Three Little Pigs. Students from the University of Southern Mississippi were among the cast portraying the story of the Three Little Pigs. We all know the story, but this one had a special theme as it encouraged kids to go to the library. The third pig's house didn't fall down because she went to the library to read and learned the best way to build a house.
As the library filled with the aroma of movie theater-style popcorn, we enjoyed games like UNO, Charades, Connect 4 and more! We also introduced our new Virtual Reality goggles, Literacy Station and PlayStation 5! All games are available for in-library use in our Teen Zone! Come by and check them out!
#ConnectWithYourLibrary was the theme for National Library Week 2022.
In celebration of Read Across America Day 2022, the Judge George W. Armstrong Library hosted a Dr. Seuss Birthday Block Party sponsored by Save the Children! The Natchez Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and the Nu Xi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi partnered with the library for this well attended event! Over two hundred children and adults came out to enjoy story time with a couple of Dr. Seuss classics, Seuss-themed crafts and games, music, food, giveaways and prizes!
The MPB Literacy Tour stopped at the Judge George W. Armstrong Library for a Pinkalicious & Peterrific event! Families in attendance enjoyed an episode of Pinkalicious & Peterrific, a themed activity/craft, and a read aloud. MPB also provided lots of goodies and one lucky participate received a playtime tablet.
Our patrons designed Valentine's Cards and we delivered them to local Nursing Homes in Natchez, MS
