Save the date!

We’re getting ready here at the library for Saturday, May 7, 2022 – Arts in the Village Market Day is back!

Kids, please stop by the library before to help us design paper birds that will create our own special work of art behind the library!

Once again, this year, the library will be holding a GIANT book sale. Browse the books, then grab a cup of coffee, a delicious baked snack and sit down and relax at Sally’s Cafe!

Sunday is Mother’s Day – Kids are invited (between 10am-2pm) to create a beautiful bracelet or fan and card for Mom on her special day.

Spring!

It looks like it should be another beautiful spring week and we’re continuing to celebrate with new books, fun crafts and getting outdoors to enjoy this wonderful season!

Our 4 & 5 year old artists painted a Spring Meadow last week – without paintbrushes!

This past Thursday was the perfect day for making and flying kites!
Ready to fly!

Next week is spring break for many of the schools in the area. Ms. Kim will be on vacation so the regular Wednesday Story Hours will be cancelled, as will the Thursday Story/Art.

But, be sure to stop by and say HELLO to Ms. Gwenn, pick up a few books for your holiday reading, and see what kind of project might be in store.

Looking Ahead…

Next month is going to be full of activity in town and at the library.

Arts in the Village is May 7th. Main Street will be closed to traffic and filled with artists and craftsmen, plants, food and music! Details soon…

That day, here at the library, we’ll be having a book sale, Sally’s Cafe and a Mother’s Day craft for the kids.

And don’t forget about the Memorial Day Parade. Once again, the library will be having the Bike Brigade. Children are invited to come before the parade and decorate their bicycles to ride in the parade. Or bring your bike already decorated.

Be sure to stop by the library for Lemonade and cookies after (or during) the parade!

Welcome spring!

Flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, everything says it’s Spring (except the temperature!)!

Stop by the library and pick up a few books to enjoy while doing a little armchair gardening. Or pick up a gardening book and actually begin to plan that garden. Or, just sit in the sunshine and enjoy a good book!

Don’t forget Ms. Kim’s Wednesday morning story hour. The stories begin at 10:30 so please try to be on time!

When you visit the Children’s Library, don’t forget to add a link to Ms. Kim’s chain of hope for Ukraine. Show you support the people of Ukraine, add a note to your link and continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers for peace.

Saturday snowstorm?

Due to predicted weather conditions the library will be CLOSED tomorrow, Saturday, January 29, 2022.

It should be a perfect day to cozy up with a good book. Or, if we get 6-12 inches of snow, maybe save the book and hot chocolate for after sledding.

Have fun but stay safe!

Looking ahead 2022

We hope the pandemic will slow, and are making plans to resume our Wednesday morning story hour.  Details soon.
