Fairy Houses!

Last Thursday we went searching for fairy houses – look what we found!

 This Thursday children created fairy houses to put into their own gardens (under shelter).  We had a great time- the houses were beautiful.

Surely they’ll all be quickly occupied!

Waiting for Wings!

Planting the Butterfly Garden


Our butterfly garden was planted behind the Children’s Library today (Tuesday).  We’re hoping the fat caterpillar we found on the fennel plant will become a beautiful butterfly.

Tomorrow- story hour at 10:30 and Lego for Little Guys at 1:30.

Thursday, June 30th.- we’ll begin searching for Fairy Houses near the library.  Call to let us know if you’re coming!

On your mark, get set…

Let summer begin!

We’re moving into summer programs beginning Tuesday with a two part program: “Butterflies ” (ages 6-up).  Come learn all about butterflies, start your butterfly mobile and help us plan and plant a butterfly garden behind the library!

Wednesday story hour continues with the letter “U” and Little Guy Lego (ages 4-6).

Thursday “Lets get cooking” with Miss Barbara and Miss Ally of Hainesport ShopRite (ages 6-up).

Be sure to call the library to register.  Space is limited for cooking programs!

There’s so much going on at the Children’s Library

Summer is almost here… and that means it’s time for summer programs at the Children’s Library!

On Friday, June 10th (the last day of school) we are welcoming summer with a backyard event.  Bring a blanket, pack a picnic and enjoy a magic show with magician Brian Richards!  The show starts at 6:30 but come early to enjoy a picnic with library friends!  It promises to be a “magical” evening for kids and adults alike.  Let us know if you can make it at 859-9002.

And that is just the beginning!  For information on all our programs, go to or click on the Children’s Library tab.

The Children’s Bike Brigade!

Kids of all ages welcome

The Sally Stretch Keen Memorial Library invites you to join us for the Memorial Day Parade in Vincentown on Monday, May 30th.

Starting at 9:15 am we will be decorating bikes etc. behind the library.  Or decorate at home and meet us.  Be sure to stop by the Children’s Library following the parade to say hello and have some lemonade and cookies.

Parents, we need you to chaperone your children during this “family fun” event.   And please don’t forget helmets.

Stuffed Animal Checkup

The Children’s Library was alive with animals on Monday.  A bunny, lamb, pig, cat, even a dinosaur and space monkey came to seek Doctor Diane’s advice.  It was determined after “thorough” examinations that most of the critters were of good health, though most had broken limbs requiring bandages.  Lambie, however, might be suffering from some special spring issues.  When her owner was asked how Lambie was  doing she replied “not good”.  Another patient, Mrs. McSqueals, received some very interesting news.
