Do you have a child in middle or high school, or one beginning to use their own phone? Do you feel clueless about what they are doing when online or just better want to understand the apps they are using? Join us on Tuesday, April 18th at 6:30pm for a presentation about Internet Safety for Parents. “Children are embracing the internet with remarkable enthusiasm as they venture online to learn, play, and communicate with their friends. Unfortunately, cyberspace is not always a safe place for youngsters to visit. Stay one step ahead of your child by learning of the new and current trends.
A presenter from the K-State Research & Extension Office in Sedgwick County has partnered with the local Exploited and Missing Child Unit (EMCU) to inform community families about the dynamics of the internet. EMCU provides up-to-date information that will equip parents for the challenges they may encounter with their children using the internet. All presenters are fully trained professionals in the field.” (Program description from presenters brochure.)
If possible bring your laptop, tablet or mobile device to be able to work online during the session (we have free wi-fi)! This session is intended for parents only.
This spring we are happy to be hosting gardening workshops free of charge to patrons. These will be presented by Master Gardeners from the Sedgwick County Extension Office. Join us to get your gardens and plants ready for a great year!

Come join us as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and promote our library to the community.
This is an event for adults to attend, along with children and teens that would be interested and able to participate appropriately. Hot tea and refreshments will be provided during speaking entertainment. We hold this event as a fundraiser to promote the library within the community. Guests are encouraged to bring their personal tea service to use and ‘show off’ and (if interested) any table decorations to match the Harry Potter theme. A donation of $5.00 per person is suggested to go towards the fundraiser for the library.
We are holding this at the Community Center this year due to some work being done at the library, and to allow more seating for the event.
The Belle Plaine City Council has approved the Comprehensive Plan. You can access the plan through their website, www.bpks.org, though a PDF at the very bottom of the home page. We also have a copy here at the library for the public to read on-site.
