So how has your summer been so far? Have you been on vacation? Finished your back to school shopping? How about those summer reading projects – books read, project complete?

Programs are winding down in the Children’s Library. This week we’ve drawn self portraits and read about turtles at our Family story hour. Next Wednesday, Shooting Stars! (10:30 am)

Our Thursday Art project will again be shrinky dink butterflies or dragonflies – I love shrinky drinks! (2 pm) Please call to let us know if you’re coming.

Stitching with Sally will meet this Thursday, August 14 (afternoon and evening sessions). The group is open to all – experienced or beginner needleworkers. Call for details (609-859-3598).

Let Summer Begin!

  • Make & Take Mondays:   Blast off into summer by stopping by the library on Monday afternoon June 24th and make a straw rocket!  Who can make the coolest looking rocket?  Whose rocket can travel higher, longer and further than all the others!
  • Tuesdays @ 2:  Beginning Tuesday July 9 at 2 pm.  Kids in 4th through 8th grade are invited to come discuss and recommend some of the great books they’re reading.  Don’t know what to read for the summer reading school projects?  Not sure what project to tackle?  Talk it over with experienced pros (7th & 8th graders).
  • The Idea Factory:  July 23rd.  Join our group of readers in welcoming author Janet Slingerland!  Ms. Slingerland will guide you to realizing your potential as an author or get you started on how to discover ideas for writing (useful for those school projects).
  • Wednesday Family Story/Craft:  Wednesday mornings, 10:30 a.m.  Recommended for children ages 3-5 accompanied by guardian (because of craft) but all ages welcome.

Let summer begin!

June is here and there are not too many more days left in the school year.  Time for summer programs!  We still have one day of school visits (puppet Ticket seems to have come down with laryngitis and was unable to perform last Wednesday).

Due to the change in schedule of school visits, Story Hour on Wednesday, June 12th. must be cancelled…sorry.

Summer kickoff:  Our backyard event  -Friday, June 14, 2019 – Bring a blanket and get there early to save your spot!

Finally, we’re beginning to see some sun!  The daffodils are such a wonderful sight and a sure sign spring is here.  So, what’s going on at the library this month?

There’s sure to be plenty of stories about spring, rain, flowers, bunnies, chicks and ducks at the Wednesday story time (10:30 am) and our Thursday Toddler Time (11 am).
