NORTH JAY — National Library Week is April 7-April 13. We are excited to announce that on April 13, the author, Paul Doiron will be at the library at 6 p.m. in Memorial Hall. He will be promoting Pitch Dark, his new novel set to be released on June 25.

He is doing a pre-publication blitz at select libraries across the state and we are lucky enough to be one of them. Devaney, Doak, and Garrett will have his previously published books on hand if attendees would like to purchase them and have them signed by the author. There will also be a drawing for and advance reader copy of Pitch Dark which will be given away on the night of the event to one lucky attendee.

During school vacation week, we will be having a Harry Potter Party from 3-6 p.m. on April 18. We are inviting all witches and wizards to attend this magical afternoon gathering. Come dressed as your favorite Harry Potter character or Hogwarts Student. Participants will be able to make their own wand and pet Hedwig craft, watch the movie, hunt for horcruxes, and enjoy a butterbeer float. We hope you can join us.
