Windsor Library Happenings

Coming Up

  • Bluebirds: Learn all about bluebirds; their habitat, how to attract them to your yard and find out how to build your very own bluebird nest box. This takes place on Thursday, May 24, starting at 6 p.m., and will be presented by Virginia Master naturalist volunteers. Registration is recommended. Call 242-3046 to reserve your spot.
  • Book Club: Meeting on Thursday, June 14, at 7 p.m. Allie Marie will be here for a talk and book signing from 6 to 8 p.m. At 7 p.m., she’ll lead the club in a discussion of her newest book, “Hands of the Healer,” which is the fourth in her “True Color” series and set in historical Olde Towne Portsmouth. Copies of all of her books are available for check out at the front desk.
  • Senior Services’ Medicare: Benefits counselors will not be here in May. They return on Monday, June 25. The time remains from 1 to 3 p.m. to assist Medicare-eligible individuals in navigating Medicare and Medicare Part D. Assistance will also be available for those who are currently enrolled and may be eligible for the Part D Low-Income Subsidy “Extra Help” benefit. These sessions are free and open to the public. Appointments are not required unless specified. Those wishing to make an appointment with a Medicare benefits counselor should please call Sam Mizelle at 328-4217.
