Newport News Public Library has fun for everyone this month with events to help usher in the spring —read about some featured events below, including an employment workshop, Pi Day events, craft and gardening programs, and storytime! To see all events, view the Library’s event calendar or download the March event handout.

Looking for help finding a job? Visit Pearl Bailey Library on March 14 from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. for the Let’s Get to Work! Employment Workshop. Come learn job-searching skills such as building a resume, practice interview skills, discover job resources available through the Peninsula Worklink Career resource center, and find out special tips and resources available to ex-offenders rejoining the workforce. A light lunch will be provided, and program registration is required. 

March 14 is also Pi Day. Visit Grissom Library at 6:30 p.m. for a pie demo and recipe swap.  Bring a recipe to share with others, learn about pie-making, and enjoy a sampling of pie courtesy of Wildflour Cakes & Pastries.  Registration is required for this free event and all ages are welcome.

In celebration of her 100th birthday, children ages 7 and older can create artwork during Music Mosaic. The program will take place at Pearl Bailey Library on Tuesday, March 20, at 4:30 p.m. and will feature a colorful and creative afternoon making mosaics out of construction paper.  That evening, everyone is welcome to attend a free lawn care seminar presented by the Newport News Master Gardeners at Grissom Library at 6:30 p.m.

Later that week, bring your family to Main Street Library for Eggtropolis: Venture in the Wild. On Saturday, March 24, from noon until 2 p.m., children ages 9 to 12 can come learn about different kinds of animal eggs during a special presentation from the Virginia Living Museum, play a live-action game of CLUE, and enjoy special treats.
