Winter is almost finished and, as thoughts turn to warmer weather, the Back Mountain Memorial Library is planning a great event, sure to put you in the spirit of Spring.

A “Ladies Night Out” is planned for 6 to 9 p. m. on Friday, March 15 at the library, 96 Huntsville Road, Dallas.

Your $5 donation for admission will include specialty shopping, chocolates, finger sandwiches, cookies, refreshments, a goodie bag and more.

Learn scarf-tying techniques, flower arranging and make-up tips while browsing tables of handcrafted jewelry, purses, accessories and cosmetics.

Raffle tickets for a hand-made quilt, a gift certificate for a salon service and a $40 item from each vendor will also be available for purchase.

Mark your calendars now and look forward to the end of your winter blahs.

A Blogging Class will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12 at the library. Attend this free class and learn how to set up a blog, as well as the “ins and outs” of blogging. Pre-registration is required for this free class.

Reminder: The new Book Discussion Club will meet at 1 p.m. on the last Thursday of each month beginning on Feb. 28 in the Community Room of the library. Members will vote on titles of books to read for the coming year and then attend meetings to discuss their opinions of the selected titles.

The Book Discussion Club will be open to all ages and anyone interested in joining this free group should call the library at 675-1182. Start jotting down titles you may want to recommend to the club for its first selection.

Attention parents: It’s once again time for the spring session of the Parent/ Child Workshop. This playgroup setting allows toddlers, 1 through 3 years of age, to play and interact with other children, as mothers (caregivers) get a chance to talk to one another and the resource professionals who attend each session. Pre-registration is required for this series of workshops.

There are still openings for children to attend the PNC Bank Grow Up Great special program, “For Me, For You, For Later” presented in partnership with the Sesame Street Workshop from 10 to 11 a.m. on Thursdays. Children ages 3 to 5 are encouraged to participate.

Call the library at 675-1182 to register for any of the above classes/workshops or to obtain more information.
