The Winston County Library is getting ready to observe National Library Week during the month of April. On Tuesday, April 10, from 3:30 – 4:30, Chris Templeton of MSU, will present a seminar at the library on Cyberbullying. “All area teenagers and their parents, school personnel, or anyone interested in this issue, should plan to attend,” says Beth Edwards, Librarian. “This seminar is made possible through a program sponsored by the Governor’s office; and I believe everyone who uses social media will benefit from it.” On Friday, April 13th, from 10:00-11:00, attendees will be treated to a program on Attracting Hummingbirds and Butterflies to your yard or garden. The program will be led by Mrs. Margaret Copeland and Mrs. Dianne Patterson, both of Starkville, MS, and members of the Oktibbeha Audubon Society.
