Enjoying Lego Program

Bentley Edwards, Paisley Camille and Kristen Arrington are shown building at the recent Lego Program at the Commerce Public Library.

The U.S. Census Bureau's website will be active on Thursday, March 12, for those wanting to participate in the 2020 Census at the Commerce Public Library. The library's patron access computers may be used to complete the census, and patrons are encouraged to bring mail from the U.S. Census Bureau along with them.

The Paper Bag Princess program will be held Saturday, March 7, at 11 a.m.

There will be another session of the popular Paint and Chat program on Monday, March 30, from 1 to 3 p.m. Be sure to call the library at 706-335-5946 to reserve a spot. Program facilitator, Sandra Cope, says "Come paint on canvas while chatting with friends. You can create your own artwork from images already drawn on canvas, and all supplies will be provided."

It is also time to start preparing for the library's annual Plant Swap to be held on Saturday, April 4, from 10 a.m. to noon.

“There is always a good supply of plants to share, trade or donate, as well as cuttings and seeds,” states Angel Abounader, library manager.
