PIQUA — The Piqua Public Library, located at 116 W. High St., has both new and returning programs in April for members of the community to enjoy including a financial seminar, a special giveaway, therapy dogs and a new book club.

The returning event is the library’s Perfect Paws program for children ages 6-17 years old. Children and teens can come decompress and hang out with a therapy dog. The next Perfect Paws events are scheduled for April 16 and 23 from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Louis Room located near the first floor circulation desk. Attendees must sign up for 10 minute increments using the sign up link on the library website at

On Saturday, April 20, the Saturday Morning Pokemon program will include a Team Rocket Takeover taking place from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the library in the children’s department.

On April 23, the library is hosting a financial seminar led by an area financial group.

The seminar’s topic is “ways to pay for college” and is open to patrons of all ages, but will have great information for graduating seniors and their parents. No registration is required for this program.

The Piqua Public Library is also holding a special seed giveaway for Earth Day on April 22.

To be a part of this special giveaway, stop in at the first floor circulation desk on April 22 and ask a staff member about the giveaway.

Lastly, the library has a new adult book club starting on May 2 called Mystery Mayhem. For the May meeting, the club is reading “All the Devils Are Here,” by Louise Penny and will meet on May 2 from 6 to 7 p.m. in the founder’s room located on the second floor of the Piqua Public Library. If you want to participate in the mystery mayhem book club, stop by the first floor circulation desk to request a copy of the book.
