We’ll talk turkey at our Thursday Toddler time too (11 am Thursday)! Give us a call to let us know you’re coming.

Stitching with Sally will meet Thursday afternoon (1:30 pm) and evening (6:30 pm). New members always welcome.

A new session of Toddler Time will begin on October 17th. Children up to 3 years are invited for stories, songs and play. Call the library to let us know you’re coming.

The Third Thursday Art project is a beautiful watercolor pumpkin painting. Children over 4 years grab your paint smock and come to the library for a story and painting. Thursday, October 17th, 2 pm. Please call to sign up!

We’re so sorry to have to bid farewell to summer but we’re definitely looking forward to the return of some of our special events.

Our Annual Local Art Exhibit & Sale will be held September 20th & 21st. Take a stroll through the library in the evening light as it’s turned into a gallery for the works of art by local artists, adorned with floral arrangements by the Vincentown Garden Club. Following your tour of the exhibit on Friday evening, join us next door for refreshments.

Other events…

This month we’ll begin our Third Thursday Story/Art sessions for kids over age 4 – September 19th at 2 pm. Please give us a call if you’re planning to attend.

There’s a slight change in the Stitching with Sally schedule. The second monthly meeting (afternoon and evening sessions) will be held on September 26th.

Wednesday Family Story time is ongoing at the library. Children, along with a caregiver, are invited to join Mrs. King for stories, songs and a craft. Toddlers, up to age 3, are invited to sing, listen to stories and play with their new friends on Thursday mornings, 11 am.

Summer’s almost over and we’re ALL excited about the new school year!

Today, Thursday, August 29th, we’ll start the morning in the Children’s Library with Toddler Time at 11 am.

We’ll be getting ready with a back to school project at our Thursday afternoon art session (2 pm) by personalizing a notebook. This collage project could get messy so be sure to bring a cover up or wear old clothes.

Following our Thursday Art session we invite everyone to stay for Legos and games (and snacks!).

We’re sad to see summer end but look forward to our Annual Art Show & Sale, September 20th & 21st.

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.
