DIY Spectrum Bracelets

April showers will bring more than just May flowers. April 3rd is National Find a Rainbow Day. Rainbows are caused by the reflection, refraction, and dispersion of light in water, resulting in a visual spectrum of light appearing in the sky. You don’t have to go chasing rainbows on this day, like Kermit the Frog said, “Rainbows are visions, they’re only illusions, and rainbows have nothing to hide.” Visit the library with your friends and make your own rainbow that you can view anytime you want. Here’s what you will need: a circle out of card stock or light cardboard, paper, embroidery floss (about 7 colors), glue, and scissors. For a more visual tutorial look up Jellyfish Friendship Bracelets.

Blackout Poetry

April is National Poetry Month, 30 days of celebrating the joy, expressiveness, and pure delight of poetry! What is blackout poetry you ask? Blackout poetry is when you take a written piece of text from a book, newspaper, or magazine and redact words, to come up with your very own poetry. You can make it into cool picture designs too. Don’t worry we won’t make you read your poem out loud unless you want to. Brownie points if you do! If you want to do this at home grab some old newspapers, magazines, or books (ask your guardian first before using old books) then grab a black marker or color of your choice and blackout the words you don’t want to use in your poem and that’s it.

Easter Weekend

The Meridian-Lauderdale County Public Library staff wishes you a Happy Easter!


Happy Golfer’s Day, celebrate by playing with your friends and spreading the joy of the game. Fun Fact: According to, golf was the first sport played on the moon. Apollo 14 commander and golfer Alan Shepard decided to leave a lasting mark before leaving the Moon. Shepard swung at two golf balls on the moon, one of which he claimed went on for miles, and eventually landed in a crater called the “Javelin.”


It’s National Scrabble Day! Are you really good at spelling or maybe you need to brush up on some words? Challenge your friends to a game of Scrabble at the library. See who can score the most points on the “Triple Word Scores”!
