Library News April 25, 2023

There’s More to the Story; this is the theme for National Library Week 2023. Today’s focus is National Library Workers Day which is a day for library staff, users, administrators, and Friends groups to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers.

I would like to take a moment and thank all of the Heart of America Library workers today. Robin, Karen, Angela, and Jason – Heart of America Library is thankful for you, your commitment to our community, and all that you do to keep us running smoothly. I thank you for helping me start in this role of Library Director and I look forward to learning from you everyday. I’d also like to thank our Board of Trustees for their dedication to our library and their understanding that there is always more to the story.

Story hour will meet on Friday, April 28 from 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Bring your child to the library for stories and crafts.

We have one more week until book club meets on May 2 at 10 a.m. so there is still time to read the book and ponder the questions. Redhead by the Side of the Road will make you wonder if you should believe what you are perceiving or if there is more to the story than meets the eye.

Andrea Blessum will be at Main Street Boutique for an official book signing on Saturday, April 29th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for her newest book, How to Ski when You Can’t Swim. Heart of America Library will have her new book available to check out and we have her first book, too, Count Your Blessums.

City Wide rummage sales means Library Book Sale. We will have a selection of books available for purchase in the west room of the basement at the low price of $1.00 per bag. You can recycle a Leevers bag or bring your own bag and fill it up for $1.00. Mention this Library News article from the website and you can start shopping our book sale early starting on May 1, 2023 at 10 a.m.!

We want to hear from you! Let us know if you have ideas for books we should consider our collection, ideas for activities you’d like to see us offer, ideas for online services we should look into. You can email Mandie at

“Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve and contribute to improving our quality of life. Libraries change lives for the better” – Sidney Sheldon.
