Summer Wrap-up

This week in story hour Mrs. King will be reading “ready for school” stories.  So many of our story time friends are moving up to Kindergarten this year.  We’re going to miss them!

Our August Arts group will meet one last time for the summer on Thursday (8/30).  This week’s project:  collage notebooks for back to school.

Stitching with Sally has a third meeting date this month!  The group meets the first and third Thursdays of the month.  This month there’s an extra Thursday – an extra meeting!!  Meetings are in the afternoon and evening – take your pick.  If interested, call the library 609-859-3598.  Miss Marsha or Miss Judy can provide details.

Looking forward to September

The Library’s Annual Local Art Exhibit and Sale will be held Friday, September 21, 5-8pm, and Saturday, September 22, 12pm-5pm.

Toddler Storytime will begin again on Thursday mornings, 11 am.  Children up to 36 months are invited to come listen to stories, sing songs, and play!  If interested, please call 609-859-9002.

Kids, ages 4-up, are invited to come on Thursday, September 13, 2pm, for a story/art project.  (Usually held the third Thursday, this has been moved up a week because of the library art show. )

As with all programs, please call the library for additional information and to let us know if you plan to attend.


August – What’s left of summer

August Arts

So far our Thursday  (1 pm – 2 pm) projects have been scratch art bookmarks, foil figures and pictures and watercolors.  Last week’s watercolor florals brought out a crowd of 16 children – Artists ALL!  A few of the paintings were left to display at the library art show in September.


This week (8/23) we’ll be making African Masks.   It should be very interesting to see  their creations.  Children over 5 years of age are welcome.  Please give us a call to let us know you’re coming. (609-859-9002 or 859-3598)

Our Summer Reading Group wrapped up this week.  We had the opportunity to hear a couple of the projects – it sure seems like they’re worthy of an A++!  There are still plenty of Newbery Award winners on the shelf for those getting a late start.
