Last Week at the Library… & Coming Up! 05-06-2018

Here is where you can check out and see what has been happening at the library and what is coming up!

On Monday, May 1st, we had our “May Day” Tyke Time. We had an AMAZING turn out with 19 people (children and adults), who attended. We read “When Spring Comes” by Kevin Henkes and we made May Day baskets for the families to take and deliver. On Wednesday we had our weekly After School Program and we played BINGO with the kids. This one is always a favorite with them. We had 10 attend and they loved winning candy and the other trinkets to take home with them. Also, on Thursday the 3rd, our book club “Book Chat” met up and discussed “The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper” by Phaedra Patrick and picked up the book “The Zookeeper’s Wife” by Diane Ackerman for our next meeting on June 7 at 6:00 pm. If you would like to pick up the book and come to the next meeting, stop in anytime to check out a copy. And as always, we had Senior Moments on Friday, and as always, a decent turnout with lots of conversation and fun. If you’re an adult, of any age, come join us on Fridays 1:30 to 3:00! After a Facebook poll, in an attempt to reach out to working families, we would like to offer an evening Tyke Time, our first one will be Thursday, May 17th at 6:00 pm. This is for babies up to school age children, and they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. We do ask that if you want to check out materials, please come early as this program will be held after normal library hours.
