Busy April ahead for Minot Sleeper library

BRISTOL — March was a big month for the Minot Sleeper Library; possibly the biggest month since its founding. This March the citizens of Bristol voted to fund the expansion of the library. The new wing will provide space for activities that presently have to be held elsewhere due to lack of space as well as providing upgrades required for the safety of the building and its occupants.

In April the library will continue to host First Pages Lapsit, a social storytime for infants to 2 years old and their moms. Lapsitting sessions are on Thursday mornings at 10 a.m. On Fridays the Bouncy Bookworms, the slightly older group of 3 to 5 year olds have their story session at 10 a.m .

On April 7 there will be a children’s egg decorating funtime from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. All of the above functions will be held at the library.

On April 19 at 7 p.m. the Bristol Historical Society and the Friends of the Library together are presenting "Lizzie Borden Took Her Ax, Or Did She?" For over one hundred years the gruesome murders of Lizzie’s father and stepmother have elicited belief in both Lizzie’s innocence and her guilt. Professor Annette Holba of PSU will present the facts, the evidence, and the fascinating history of this mystery. This program will be held at the Bristol Old Town Hall and is free to all.
