Library hosting animal, trivia, travel adult programs in January

Tiffin-Seneca Public Library will kick off the New Year with three special programs for adults. These programs are an excellent way to unwind from holiday stress and beat the winter blues. Whether it’s learning about animals, a new vacation spot, or trying your luck at trivia, Tiffin-Seneca Public Library has something in store for you!

With the cold weather upon us, why not learn about winter animals? Linda Rose, from the Seneca County Park District will be here to talk about local animals. Tracks and Scat of Animals in Seneca County is a program for all ages. When the snow begins to fall, Linda’s program will make it easier to identify tracks of animals both large and small. Patrons will learn about the mammals of Seneca County as we explore their furs, habitats, tracks, and scat. Come learn through hands-on activities and end the evening with a scat snack. I promise, the scat snack is totally edible! Tracks and Scat of Animals in Seneca County will be Wednesday, Jan. 17, at 6:30 p.m. No registration is required for this program.

Some people like to get out of the cold by staying inside and binge watching television shows. If you are one of those people, and you are a fan of Gilmore Girls, we have the perfect event for you. Get your team together for Gilmore Girls Trivia Night. Groups of four will answer trivia questions about the core series, not the Netflix edition. Get ready by visiting the library to check out DVDs of every season of the show! Snacks and drinks will be provided. This program for adults will be Thursday, Jan. 25, at 6:30 p.m. Please call the library or visit our website to register for this program because registration is limited.

Cold weather tends to make people think about getting away, preferably to somewhere warm. It’s never too early to start planning a vacation, and we have just the program to get you started. Carol Becker, an ambassador from Road Scholar, will be sharing her experiences traveling the world with the Get Schooled with Road Scholar program Monday, Jan. 29, at 6:30 p.m.

Road Scholar is the world’s largest non-profit creator of experiential learning opportunities. Road Scholar is dedicated to creating learning adventures for lifelong learners. On a Road Scholar trip you never just learn about the area; rather, you experience the culture with a local expert as you are fully immersed in the everyday life of the area. Guided tours offer insight into the destination’s architecture, cuisine, and history. Because Road Scholar focuses on community, hotels are already selected for you, making this a safe way to visit an area alone or with friends and family. There are no age restrictions, and it is easy to select a trip based on a theme (family, single, or couple) and experience level (easy, moderate, or hard). The Library has the Road Scholar’s brochure with more information about destinations and costs of trips.

Ring in the New Year with the library by joining us for one or all of these programs. Please call (419) 447-3751 if you have any questions.
