NYSSA NEWS: Library events, seniors dance and annual chamber banquet

NYSAA – A 2019 Gallup poll listing nine common cultural activities found a visit to the library was the No. 1 leisure activity, ahead of movies, sporting events and a concert or play. The Nyssa Public Library is a hub of activities for all ages in the community.

On the first and third Thursdays, an after school craft time is held at the library starting at 3:15 p.m. Every Tuesday at 11 a.m., story time is held for preschool-age children and their parent or caregiver.

The newly-formed adult book club had its first meeting and chose “The Japanese Lover” by Isabel Allende as the book to read in March. Stop by the circulation desk to pick up a book club packet which includes the book and a series of discussion questions.

The March meeting is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday, March 28.

When you visit the library, pick up a copy of the monthly newsletter for all the latest information on library activities.
