JEFFERSON -- The Jefferson Public Library has announced its upcoming adult and youth programs.

In adult programming:

-- Adults can stop by the library anytime Thursday, Feb. 14, to create a card for their special someone. All materials will be provided.

-- It is time to reveal the murderer in the library’s murder mystery, “Dying for Love.” Suspects’ confessions will be available for participants to read next week and they will discover if they have correctly solved the mystery. The winner in the library’s drawing will be contacted Friday, Feb. 15.

-- The library’s winter reading challenge ends Feb. 15. That will be the last day for participants to claim any bingo prize entries they may have earned.

In youth programming:

-- A picture book challenge for those ages 5-12 will be held Monday from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Children can take inspiration from the picture book “Perfect Square” by Michael Hall to discover what they can do with an ordinary square piece of paper.

-- Storytime will be held Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 10 a.m. It will include stories, songs and rhymes designed to help children develop the early literacy skills they need to be reading ready. The activity is suitable for those ages 1-5.

-- A SHELF teen volunteer meeting will be held Feb. 13 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Teens going into sixth grade and up are invited to join this group.
