The new Avengers movie comes out this summer, and the Huntington and Markle libraries are celebrating with a movie marathon.

That’s eight films. For a complete list of what’s to be shown, check the library’s online calendar at http://hctpl.info.

Teens can enjoy a variety of technology-based activities for Teen Tech Week at the Huntington and Markle libraries. Teen Tech Week is the first full week in March, and libraries nationwide bring programs, workshops and hands-on experiences with technology to their teens. From March 5 to 10, both libraries will feature a variety of activities to see what’s happening when, visit the library’s online calendar at http://hctpl.info.

The Paws to Read program kicks off once again this March for its spring session.

Sessions take place every Saturday morning in Huntington from March 10 to April 14, and on March 10, March, 24, and April 7 in Markle. Registration is required, so make sure to call the Youth Services desk at (260) 356-2900 to sign up your child.
