Book club

All readers are invited to Marty Kaback’s book discussion. Come at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 12 to discuss “All the Water in the World” by Karen Raney. Copies are available at the front desk.


The weather outside is still frightful, so why not stop in and share something warm? For March, the Toastbusters will tackle “Genuine Pizza: Better Pizza at Home” by Michael Schwartz and Olga Massov.

Stop in and pick up a copy, and learn how to add a little extra spark to your pizza nights. Go to the library for a night of good food and good company on Monday, March 16 at 6:30 p.m.

This program is free to attend, but registration is required. Stop in, call 419-826-2760, or register at www.swantonpubliclibrary.org.

Card making

On Thursday March 19 at 6:30 p.m. create three different cards that will have you thinking of warm spring sunshine in no time. Attendees will make one birthday card, one ‘Thinking of You’ card, and one Easter card.

Class fee is $6 per person for three cards. All supplies are provided. Because room and supplies are limited registration is required.

Movie discussion

Follow free solo climber Alex Honnold in “Free Solo” as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: scaling Yosemite National Park’s 3,200-foot El Capitan Wall without a rope or safety equipment, arguably the greatest feat in rock climbing history.

Pick up your copy of this National Geographic documentary film and join in at 2 p.m. on Friday, March 20 for the main event. Copies are limited, and will be checked out on a first-come-first-served basis. This program is free to attend and no registration is required.


Did you know that census results affect everything from the boundaries of voting districts to school funding? Which is why the library is taking this census seriously.

On Saturday, March 21 at 10:30 a.m. questions will be answered about the 2020 Census — how to fill it out, where to fill it out, why the questions are how they are, and more.

This program is free to attend and refreshments will be provided.

Voter registration

It’s a presidential election year and the library will have help available for those looking to register. On Tuesday, March 24 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., representatives from the Fulton County Board of Elections will be on hand to help you with all of your questions.
