Atmore Public Library is improving on its services for adults offering an adult reading program beginning April 14.
Currently the library does not have any specific adult programs besides regular library services, but does offer a children’s summer reading program, which it will be similar to.
McKinley said they got the idea from an e-mail sent from the state library.
The free program will last four weeks for an hour and a half each time and will have different topics each week under the main theme of “Master the Art of Reading.”
The first week Debra Swartzendruber will give a class on scrapbooking, the second week the Atmore Garden Club will give a class on arranging flowers, the third week artist Freddie Miller will give a class on decorating a gourd and the program will commence with a book discussion the last week.
McKinley said there are not plans for another program yet, and they will base future ones on how well this goes.
Seating is limited for the program, but spaces are still available. To sign-up call the library at 368-5234.
