Many events and programs are happening at the library. More information is available on the library’s website: vicksburgdistrictlibrary.org

Tuesday evenings from 7-8 p.m., tai chi practice for adults and seniors.

Thursday mornings from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., tai chi practice.

The local Bridge Club meets from 9:30 to noon on each Thursday.

On January 26th, the Writers Roundtable creative writing group will meet at 1 p.m. The library will provide coffee and tea.

An Adult Winter Reading program which began December 21 runs through March 20. The theme is “Winter Wonder,” and patrons can earn prizes like water bottles and coffee mugs. But the best part is earning entries for a drawing for Amazon gift cards ($75, $50, and $25).

Stephanie Willoughby, the Youth Services Librarian, will host a virtual story time every Monday. Patrons can check the library’s calendar for details – this should be posted soon.

Stephanie Willoughby is launching “Books Before,” detailed below.

Books Before Programs: How it works

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

For children ages 0-preschool.

Sign up online by filling out the Google registration form.

Pick up a sheet to fill out at the library or download one from our website.

Every time you read it counts as a book. If it’s bedtime and they ask for Goodnight Moon three times; that is three books. If they ask for Goodnight Moon the next day to be read twice, that is two books. 

New book and sticker for every 100 read

Upon completion, the child will receive a bag filled with books and literacy prizes. If the caregiver or parent approves, we will post on our social media their picture and accomplishments.
