What's the latest craze? Rubber band bracelets. The Children's Department at Rodman Main Library is sponsoring an all-day session on Monday, Dec. 30, where children can create their own colorful bracelets. Visit the library anytime from 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. If a beginner, try a single loop bracelet. If more adventuresome try a fishtail pattern. This event is for ages 10 and up (or younger if accompanied by an adult). The library has a rainbow loom that can be used, as well as books to check out or reserve.
The Affordable Care Act Marketplace Enrollment Clinic is presented in cooperation with the Ohio Association of Foodbanks and consists of Navigators presenting a short information presentation followed by an enrollment session. This event is open to the public.
Consumers can register for this event by calling 1-800-648-1176 (jmh)

A new writers’ group is forming at Rodman Main Library, Monday, Jan. 13, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Attendees will meet in the auditorium to discuss how they wish to organize their group. Come prepared to introduce yourself and bring a few pages of a work in progress to read aloud, if time permits, so members can get a feel for each other's style. Please keep this to no more than two pages. There will be no critiques at this stage. No registration is needed. For more information on this or other programs, call 330-821-2665, ext. 208.
