Families can celebrate Earth Day by playing a round of mini golf at our Main Branch any time on Monday, April 22.

We’ll have nine holes for you to play through – all with a nature theme.

Afterward, golfers can grab a cup of hot chocolate, and the winners will have their photo taken for our Wall of Fame.

By the way, thanks to Dairy Queen for letting us borrow their clubs and balls.

Getting green with Mentor Public Library

So many crafty programs for Earth and Arbor Day! Make collages, reusable totes and more.

So many crafty programs for Earth and Arbor Day! Make collages, reusable totes and more at Mentor Public Library’s branches.

We’re celebrating both Earth Day (April 22) and Arbor Day (April 26) soon, so we’re hosting three programs that week where families can find the fun in going green.

First, families can make Earth Day collages any time from 4 to 8 p.m. on Monday, April 22, at our Headlands Branch. You can create landscapes, planets or anything else you can imagine out of recycled magazines. No registration required. All ages welcome.

Next, kids can make crafts out of recycled materials during our monthly Green Kids Craft Lab at 6 p.m. this Wednesday, April 24, at The HUB inside Mentor High School. This month’s theme is (naturally) I Love the Earth. Once again, no registration is required.

That same day, adults can make their own crafty, reusable totes at 6:30 p.m. at our Lake Branch. Like our other programs, this one is free to attend. However, we do require that you register beforehand. You can sign up online or call our Lake Branch at (440) 257-2512.

Additionally, if you’re looking for another way to recycle, you can come to the Friends of Mentor Public Library’s book sale that weekend. Restock your bookshelves for next to nothing on Saturday, April 27, and Sunday, April 28.

The money from these book sales supports library programs and services, including summer reading, author visits, children’s story times and programs, as well as programming for teens.

Finally, if you’re looking books or DVDs to help discuss Earth or Arbor Day with your kids, we literally have hundreds in our collection that you can borrow.

We’re inviting friends over to tell some tree tales this month.

In place of our preschool story times, we’re hosting a pair of special story times with our friends from The Holden Arboretum at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, March 12, and Wednesday, March 13, at our Main Branch.

Then, our Holden friends will visit our Lake Branch for a story time at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 19.

All of these story times will teach kids the importance and value of trees.

All of these story times are free to attend. No registration necessary.
