For this week’s Grab & Go Activity, we will be making Potato Prints for our Potato Week! Turn it into wrapping paper, a birthday card or art for your wall.
National Library Week is April 4-10!!
The library is where you can find whatever you are looking for. “Welcome to your Library” for free concerts, drive-in movies, conversations on social discourse, writer's workshops, author talks, game nights, Date Nights, grab-and-go crafts, storytimes, legal clinics.
Oh! And newspapers, magazines, historical archives, new books and Hot Picks, audio books, early literacy resources, Spanish language films and magazines, and a host of online services including the New York Times and Wall Street Journal, movie screening through Kanopy, and all the latest crafting videos on CreativeBug.
There is more. During the past year, the BRL has waived fines for late items as we have quarantined all materials upon their return to the library. This policy will continue for the near future.
We are so excited to welcome you back into the Library as public health restrictions allow. We are committed to providing the very best resources and programs for the community while maintaining a safe and welcoming space for all.
And we are grateful to you for continuing to support the BRL. Your kind comments, patient expectations, and trust in our staff has made the past year more bearable. Library Giving Day is April 7. A gift of $20.21 will help secure the new programming and resources brought to you by the BRL.
Thank you, and “Welcome to your Library!”
Since 1973, the first big effort in delivering nutrition education to the lay public was introduced as National Nutrition Week, and in 1980, this event grew into becoming what we know as National Nutrition Month®. This month everyone is invited to learn how to make more informed food choices to help develop healthy eating habits. Every year, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, along with other organizations, spread awareness of making “informed food choices and developing healthful eating and physical activity habits” (National Nutrition Month Overview).
This year’s National Nutrition Month® theme is Personalize Your Plate! This theme prompts the question, how can we make healthy food choices, adapted to our own unique bodies, that meet our personal and cultural preferences? The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has created many free and downloadable resources with the purpose of helping individuals learn how they can personalize their own plates to help them work towards their health-related goals.
Many might even think about celebrating National Nutrition Month® by growing their own garden of delicious vegetables. If you need help getting started, visit the Basalt Regional Library to pick up seeds for your garden. A collection of victory garden seeds will be available at the Basalt Regional Library starting March 15. You can also visit the Seed Savers Exchange for gardening planning help and tips. No matter what your goal might be, we wish you all the luck this month with building new and healthy habits! Happy National Nutrition Month®.
