We are having our caterpillars again! Join us as we learn about the life cycle of butterflies with your own caterpillar. A $5.00 donation will adopt one of the larvae, that you can watch grow at the library! Think of a special name for your butterfly that we will put on your butterfly jar. After it emerges from a chrysalis, we will tag it, and you can release your butterfly to make the long journey south.
Watch for updates on our Facebook page and information about our Monarch release parties.
We will also have a Butterfly Tea on September 26th. See our events calendar for more details.
It’s hard to believe that summer is winding down, but we had a Rockin’ Summer Reading program. 1834 books were read, or kids read for 36,680 minutes! 183 paperback books were awarded!
Remember, as school starts up again, keep reading 20 minutes each day. Check out your school library and visit us here at the public library for advice on great books or just come find them for yourself!
Join us the first Tuesday of the months for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) projects! This program is geared for school-aged children. Check the monthly events calendar for details.
Starting up again in October, join this group of 7th-12th grade girls as we learn about computer science. Our group will meet weekly from October through April on Thursday from 4 to 5:30. See our Girls Who Code page for more information or stop by the library.
When you consider the organizations in the community to support, please remember the Library and our children’s programs. Monetary gifts are the best, but we also greatly appreciate the gift of simple consumables. Items welcomed include glue sticks, markers, googly eyes, pop-poms, construction paper and other craft supplies. Volunteering for special events is also a great way to help your library!
Thank you for your support in advance! – Miss Amy and Loraine
