Happy 4th!!!

We’ve had a busy week at the library and looking forward to the July 4th holiday!

Last Friday evening we had to take our Backyard event, with Full Effect Productions, indoors but we were rewarded with “Shark Magic” and water ice. Who doesn’t like a good shark show!

It looks like we’ll be checking out a lot of books this summer as twenty four kids showed up to paint canvas book bags with Linda McCardell of the Vincentown Garden Club.  Thanks to the Vincentown Garden Club, Linda, Nancy and all the Moms and Grand-moms who came out to assist with the painting project.caroline's bookbag

Don’t forget every Wednesday afternoon 4 pm -5 pm, Mrs. Oliveira hosts LEGO.  Bring a friend and join us!

We’re looking forward to a very full schedule in July.  Keeping with this summer’s reading theme, Libraries Rock here is a sampling of the first full week of events:

  • we invite kids of all ages to come out to  percussion instruments (7/10)
  • be introduced to some  members of the Southampton School band and their musical instruments (7/11)
  • learn about Roots Music with April Mae and the June Bugs at an afternoon program (7/12)

The weeks events all lead up to a BIG BACKYARD CONCERT with April Mae and the JuneBugs accompanied by the kids with their newly made percussion instruments! (7/12 6:30 pm)

Coming this Friday…

Looks like our backyard event will be moving indoors… See you at the Old Town Hall!

It looks like the weather is going to cause a change in plans for our annual backyard event.  The Old Town Hall is just around the corner on Plum Street. (Main Street to Church Street, right on Plum Street.)

Our annual backyard event!

Come out and join us this Friday, June 22, 2018 for our summer kick-off, backyard event.

Show begins at 6:30 pm so arrive early with your blanket or lawn chair to get a good seat.  (Lawn chairs will have to sit behind blanket seating so the kids can see the show!)

Get Ready…

Here comes SUMMER!

The school year is winding down – the library is gearing up for summer! We look forward to seeing everyone here at the library as Kindergarten through fifth grade classes from Southampton Schools visit.  Let’s make sure they know where to find us and know what we offer at the library.
Throughout the summer we’ll be having a lot of programs to enlighten and entertain children of all ages:   Story hours, a backyard magic show, a backyard concert, music, arts and crafts.
Stop by the library and say hello, sign up for a program, check out a book…

Gotta keep reading!
