Our 2018 Summer Reading Program has begun.  With the theme “Libraries Rock!” we will offer a range of activities for all ages that encourage us to grow, connect and create with books, art and craft projects, science experiments and special events.

Build and create with LEGO Club on Mondays 3-5 PM; Storytime on Wednesdays 10-11 AM, followed by a drop-in STEAM Lab from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM; and on Thursdays, Family Game Night is back 5-7 PM.

It’s never too late to join in.  Stop in, sign up and get our brochure of programs and special events planned for July and August.  A full calendar of programs is also at the Summer Reading link above.

Summer LEGO Club:  Mondays from 3 to 5:00 PM  Drop in to play and create with LEGO.  We supply the blocks; you bring the imagination.

Summer Pre-Literacy Activities:   Wednesday mornings from 10 to 11:00 AM  Join Miss Lee for stories, songs, and movement activities designed for infants to children up to five years old.  In addition to developing pre-reading skills, singing, moving to music, and playing instruments all help foster a sense of rhythm and timing that are essential elements in developing the part of a child’s brain that shapes math skills.

Summer Drop-In STEAM Lab:  Wednesdays from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM  Choose from a variety of activities.  Miss Lee will present a Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math program aimed at a variety of age groups.   Each week will feature a different STEAM-based activity with hands-on crafts and demonstrations.

Read to Lefty (Registered Therapy Dog):  Fridays from 5:30 to 6:30 PM (once a month)  If your child is self-conscious or reluctant to read, he or she may feel more comfortable reading to a dog.  Because dogs aren’t judgmental, the child relaxes and focuses on the reading.

Technology Walk-In Wednesdays:   Do you have a new Kindle or Nook, but don’t know how to download books?  Need to brush up on your computer skills – or obtain basic skills?  See Amy on Wednesdays between 10 AM and 1 PM for FREE, personalized, one-on-one instruction.

Library Book Discussion Group:  Meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7 PM.  New members are welcome.  Contact the library for the month’s selection.

Memoir Writing Group:  Meets the 2nd Saturday of each month at 11 AM.   Led by Lila Hollister Smith, this group is open to all who are interested in self-expression through the art of writing.  New members are welcome.
