Amid the evergreen of South Cobb Regional Library events, such as Project U First Donation Drive and Family Sing and Dance Along, some events have bloomed to mark a wonderful beginning to the spring season. Among the new offerings, Hula Hoop Workouts are scheduled for the third, fourth, and fifth Monday of April. This physical wellness activity appears as an alternative to Belly Dance classes scheduled for the first and second Monday of the month.

For those with green-thumbs—beginners and experts alike—there’s the monthly adult craft kit event which offers Decorative Planters. These kits shall be available during regular library hours every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday throughout the month of April, while supplies last.

Of course, for those averse to growing plants, the following events are sure to either improve your gardening game or irradiate the color of your aura, blooming you within the community:

  • Reptile Encounters with Scaly Addictions, April 2nd at 3:00 PM, featuring live reptiles with story time, for children 4+;
  • Kids Harp Workshop, April 3rd at 2:30 PM, introducing children 6-12 years of age to the harp and how to play it;
  • South Cobb Spoken Word and Poetry Celebration, April 17th at 5:00 PM, celebrating National Poetry Month;
  • Gardener’s Night Out: Pruning in the Home Landscape, April 22nd at 6:30 PM, teaching the why’s, when’s, and how’s of pruning trees and shrubs.

However, if there were ever reasons to visit South Cobb Regional Library, then its Movie Matinees (with screenings the first Monday and Tuesday of April, on the 4th and 5th) and its Solar Eclipse Viewing Party on April 8th are solid reasons. With the exception of the 5th, pleasant days of sunshine are forecasted for these particular events. It’ll be a great opportunity and place to create perennial memories.

As always, check out that book, and get your creativity on. Your brain will thank you.
