The children's department saw the largest return of children and families since the start of the pandemic. We were thrilled to have big turnouts for so many of our summer programs and 410 children registered for summer reading.
Fall brings school, apples, leaves...and the return of weekly story times! Join us Mondays and Thursdays starting September 8 at 10 am for themed stories, songs, and a simple craft. Story times are geared toward children ages 1-5 and take place in the downstairs Meeting Room.
Our STEAM cart days were such a big success this summer that we will continue to offer them each week in the Fall. The STEAM cart will come out Tuesdays from 12 pm to 7 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm. We will have out a different STEAM activity each day, like Magnatiles, KEVA planks, Snap Circuits, art, Pattern Play, and marble run.
Children ages 9 and up will enjoy the return of one of our most fun programs: Team Selfie Scavenger Hunt on September 26 at
6:30 pm. Register with a friend and go through the Library taking selfies at designated hidden spots. We will have silly prizes for all participants.
Join us for screen-free Lego Coding Mazes for children ages 8-12 on Saturday, September 10, at 1 pm. Create a maze out of Legos, and use block coding to navigate your Lego person out of the maze! Registration required.
Teens ages 12-18 can drop by on Wednesday, September 22, from 6 pm to 8 pm for Teen Board Game Night. Choose from games provided by the Library or bring your own. Bring your friends or make some new ones!
The third-grade tours will take place this October. Each third-grade class in town will visit the library on a class trip to learn about the history of the library, the value of having a free library card, and the location of items in the building. Students can take out one book during the tour, but only if they have their own library card and it is in good standing. Parents' cards are not accepted. September is Library Card Signup Month, so come by and get your child his or her own card this month.
