Have you every wished you could play with your kid’s LEGOs all by yourself? Now you have the chance to “play” with other adults at the Library’s Orange Branch, 7171 Gooding Boulevard on Monday, January 28 at 6:30 p.m. The Library will supply thousands of LEGO’s, dozens of creative ideas, and the space for you to explore your inner-LEGO person.
In these economic times, knowing your credit score can be critical. To learn more about what information credit bureaus collect, how they get that information and how they calculate your credit score, join us at the Delaware (Main) Library on Tuesday, January 29th at 7:00 p.m. for “Mysteries and Secrets of Credit Reports and Scores Revealed.” Taught by a Certified Consumer Credit Counselor with over 15 years of experience in the credit and mortgage industry, this class will cover what you need to know about your credit history and why it should matter to you.
There are two book discussions scheduled for next week. At the Orange Branch at 7:00 p.m., the book up for discussion will be The Book Thief by Markcus Zusak, an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul. Join us at the Delaware Library to discuss Cry to Heaven by Anne Rice, where 18th-century Naples is the setting for the pain, fears, resentments, and triumphs of two castrati striving to live full lives. Both groups meet on Wednesday, January 30.
Check out all of the great programs scheduled at the Delaware County District Library!

The Delaware County District Library will be closed on Monday, January 21, 2013. Library staff will be at a day long in service learning how to serve you better. We will reopen on Tuesday, January 22, 2013.
The renovations are not totally complete, but the Powell Branch is opening today, January 7, 2013 at 9:00 a.m., and will resume its normal hours. Not all of the new furnishings have arrived, but we did not want to keep the Branch closed any longer than necessary, as it is fully operational and the staff was eager to reopen its doors.
I think you’ll find that the changes we have made have provided an amazing face lift to this building, making it feel more lively, friendly, and contemporary.
Plan to stop by the Powell Branch soon, and let me know what you think of the changes we have made so far. I hope you’ll be as pleased as we are.
