Last Week at the Library… & Coming Up! 05/13/2018

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

 On Wednesday, May 9th we had LEGOS Challenge for our After School Program, we had about 10 kids stay and participate. We challenged them to make castles and cars using the LEGOS and had some pretty neat creations. The library board also met on May 9th and will meet again on June 13th, as they meet the 2nd Wednesday of each month. The meetings are open to the public. On Friday May 11th, we had our usual Senior Moments gathering where we color and have great conversation, please remember to come join us, this is open to ADULTS of all ages. Also on Friday, the library partnered up with the New London Community Schools to bring the Hanson Family to perform in the gym. The Hanson’s are a talented family who ride and perform tricks on unicycles, spin plates, and juggling. Their father holds the world record for FASTEST juggler in the world! With about 350 in attendance between the elementary, middle and high schools, they all seemed to really enjoy watching this family and their many talents. You can go on to our Facebook page to see photos and videos from the show! This event is the kickoff to the Summer Reading Program: Libraries Rock, for this summer of 2018. The program will officially begin on May 29th (the last day of school). Be sure to stop in to the library to pick up your reading logs to keep track of time or books read to earn incentives along the way. If you return the log before the deadline, you will be invited to celebrate with a pizza party, where you have the chance to win some of the larger prizes based on participation throughout the program! More details and information to come soon!
