(MITCHELL) - The Mitchell Public Library will soon offer video games for checkout as part of its collection.

Amber Painter, Adult services librarian, says the library is seeking help through a short survey to tell staffers what games people would like to see. Anyone can take the survey online at or go to the library to fill out the survey.

No late fees

The library now offers e-books that can be downloaded directly to a kindle or home computer, and users don't have to worry about late fees. To check out e-books, grab your library card, go to and start browsing. If you have any questions about the service, contact the library at 849-2412.

All day on March 25, 26 and 28 the library will host camp-like activities for elementary-age children.

Get your game on at the library every Tuesday from 3-7 p.m., gather around with friends to play board games, Legos, Story- Cubes, Minecraft, and more. No registration required. Open to all ages.

Engage with the arts at the Homeschool Art Series at 1 p.m. on March 29. Youths in grades K-12 will learn how artists from different periods represented the Easter story, then paint and fold their own Easter bouquets. To register, call the library at 849-2412. This program is made possible by the National Gallery of Art.
