Technology-based activities planned for May at Sanibel library

By Staff | May 8, 2019

The Sanibel Public Library will offer programs in technology during the month of May.

Witness a virtual sinking of the RMS Titanic today, May 10. Users will leave with a greater understanding of the tragedy that unfolded in 1912. Registration is required due to the experience length, which is 10-20 minutes. Set up a time from 10 a.m. to noon by calling 239-472-2483.

The Summer Reading Kick-Off Party is set for May 25 at 10 a.m. If families cannot attend, they can still register in person or online. Program participants will receive a special gift; quantities are limited. As in years past, children can read to earn books for their home library and for patients at the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. The Sanibel Public Library Foundation, along with the Joan Hunt Cory Children’s Fund, underwrites the summer reading program.

During May, the weekly children’s programs will not be available.

The programming will resume in June with Youth Services Librarian Deanna Evans.

Library cards are available to residents of Sanibel and Lee County at no charge.

Visitor library cards are available for a $10 annual fee.

The Sanibel Public Library is open Mondays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is closed on Sundays.

For more information, call 239-472-2483 or visit online at www.sanlib.org.

The Sanibel Public Library is at 770 Dunlop Road.
