Masks are required for anyone age 3+.
Throughout history there have been many books that have been challenged or full-on banned at school and public libraries for various reasons. This year in honor of Banned Books Week and the ways in which libraries have attempted to stand against censorship we will be hosting a scavenger hunt for the whole family! Pictures of the covers will be hidden around the children’s room and participants will be given a sheet with matching photos to find. Once you find them all, show the librarian at the desk and you will receive a prize! (Spoiler alert: it’s a bendy pencil)
This program is for all ages, although the books that are showcased will be children’s books and age-appropriate for the room.
No registration required. Masks are required for anyone ages 3+.
Join us for a fun afternoon of painting under the library tent without having to worry about the cleanup!
This month kids will be painting pumpkins and experimenting with leaf painting!
The paint we will be using is washable but be sure to wear something you don’t mind getting messy in.
This program is for ages 0-12. Space is limited and registration is required.
Do you think you’d be a great Impostor or Crewmate? Will you succeed in accomplishing your tasks? Or will your plan be thwarted by the Impostor? Join us in the co-op online game of Among Us! The game is free for Android and Apple phones and is available to purchase on the Nintendo Switch or on Steam. We will be using Zoom to debate and discuss our findings during Emergency Meetings.
Participants will be emailed the Zoom link the day of the program, and the game codes will be shared in Zoom.
