Patrons of the Wood County District Public Library in downtown Bowling Green can look forward to several special programs, concerts and classes during the month of February.
• For those ready to discover a new author in an unusual way, February is "Blind Date with a Book Month." Adult readers may check out books wrapped in paper and unwrap them at home. Inside each book is a "Rate your date" slip to be filled out and returned to the library to enter the reader in a drawing for dinner for two in downtown Bowling Green.
• A "Sunday Concerts in the Atrium" series starts on Feb. 9 with Tim Tegge and the Black Swamp Boys, continues on Feb. 16 with performances from the Grande Royale Ukulelists of the Black Swamp, and concludes on Feb. 23 with a concert by the Voices of Harmony, a barbershop-style men's chorus.
All performances begin at 3 p.m. The series is free and open to all.
• Free tax preparation help also begins at the library in February. Individuals and families with low to moderate income, up to $50,000 per year, may sign up for consultations on Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday afternoons.
Participation in the program, which is run by United Way in Wood County and continues through late April, requires an appointment. Those wishing to make an appointment, or learn more details, should dial 2-1-1 or 1-800-650-HELP (4357).
• Puppet Pals, the free tutoring and homework help partnership with the BGSU Reading Center, has just resumed for the new semester in the library's Children's Place.
Youth Services Librarian Maria Simon and her staff have also begun planning the second Youth Community Reads in partnership with BG City Schools library media specialists Tamra Lynch and Patti Risch. This year's book is "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library" by Chris Grabenstein.
Grabenstein is slated to visit Bowling Green and the library in early May.
