National Library Week includes ‘Movie Night’ promo to win pizza

Contributed MOVIE NIGHT DISPLAY — This display at the Dillonvale-Mount Pleasant Branch is for the “Movie Night with the Library” promotion during National Library Week. Families, children and teens can borrow a movie bag from the library and put their name in a drawing for a large pizza from Domino’s Pizza. The movie bags are available for checkout at each location of the Public Library of Steubenville and Jefferson County.

STEUBENVILLE — There’s no better time to visit the Public Library of Steubenville and Jefferson County than during National Library Week, Sunday through April 10, to celebrate with a variety of promotions and programs, according to Jennifer Cesta, public relations coordinator.

Patrons can win a chance for a large pizza from Domino’s Pizza by participating in “Movie Night with the Library.”

“Stop in any library branch and check out a bag filled with popcorn, a movie on DVD and a book related to the movie title,” Cesta explained. “Bags are packaged for families, teens and adults. Each time you borrow a movie bag, you get a chance to win a pizza. One large pizza will be given away at each library location,” she noted.

The Chick-fil-A food truck will be in the parking lot at the Schiappa Branch from noon to 2 p.m. on April 10, offering the purchase of chicken sandwiches, waffle fries or brownies.

Author Robin Yocum, a native of Brilliant, will discuss his upcoming book, “The Sacrifice of Lester Yates.” as part of an online program. The video will be available April 6-30 on the library’s YouTube channel, PLSJ. The book is scheduled to be released on April 27.

“Enter your name to win a copy of the new political thriller book when you visit the library April 4-10 in person and place your name in a drawing,” Cesta noted.

“Lester Yates is the notorious Egypt Valley Strangler, one of the country’s most prolific serial killers — or, is he?” book promotional material points out. “Yates is two months from his date with the executioner when Ohio Attorney General Hutch Van Buren is presented with evidence that could exonerate him. But Yates is a political pawn, and forces exist that don’t want him exonerated, regardless of the evidence.”

This year’s theme for National Library Week is “Welcome to Your Library,” reminding communities that everyone is encouraged to visit and use their library services, Cesta explained.

Library Director Mike Gray welcomes all to the library whether it’s in person or virtually through the website.

“We have taken every precaution to make in-person visits safe, and our web page features many resources for entertainment and education,” Gray said.

“Please come and visit — you won’t be disappointed.”
