What's Happening At CCPL
April is National Poetry Month, and to celebrate, we invite everyone, no matter your age, to write some poetry on our sidewalks with chalk! Share lines of poetry from your favorite poet, or share original poetry that you have written. Chalk art is also welcome. Chalk will be provided at the front desk throughout this month, and some contributions may be featured on our social media.
Join us for a Virtual Poetry Slam on Wednesday, April 28th at 5:30 p.m. Share your original poetry or share poetry that you enjoy on the library’s Zoom channel with fellow poetry lovers. You supply your own coffee or tea at home. Just e-mail karen AT ccitypl.org, to get the Zoom link, or call Karen at 765-478-3335 for more information.
After a long, cold winter, the tender life that has been waiting, dormant beneath the frigid ground and nourished by the chill winter rains and snow, is finally bursting forth with an explosion of colorful crocus, scylla, daffodils, hyacinths, and wildflowers. So, too, have the library’s tax shelves which have so long lain barren and empty finally, at long last, been filled to overflowing with an abundance of federal and state tax forms just waiting for you to pick up. Yes, it’s true! Our tax forms have arrived. If there is a specific form that you need beyond the basics, just ask at the front desk, and we can usually find and print out what you need. The federal government has extended the deadline for filing taxes for individuals to May 17th this year.
The Senior Center Book Club will meet, Wednesday, April 28th at 1:00 p.m. for a socially distanced book discussion of C.J. Box’s novel Open Season, a mystery / thriller set in Wyoming.

We welcome families with preschoolers to enroll in our popular 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program. Registering and logging books for this program is available online through our READsquared app that you can download to your smartphone or tablet. This program encourages families to read 1,000 books with their children before they enter kindergarten. Your child will get a free book from the library to keep after every 100 books read. When your family has read 1,000 books, your child will earn a special prize.
