The library will be offering three special events for kids during the week of spring break, March 13-17. Starting Friday, March 10, readers can stop in at the library and pick up a Spring Break Bingo card. Take it home, complete a Bingo (straight line in any direction) and return the card by Monday, March 20 for a prize. On Monday, March 13, any time after 1:00 p.m. there will be a "10 Clues Search." All elementary age children are welcome to participate. Each clue will lead to a different part of the library and a new clue. The participant will need to write down the location of each clue (but leave the clue in its hiding place) before moving on to the next clue. Younger children will need an adult to help them.
On Tuesday, March 14 at 10:00 a.m. we will have our weekly story time for preschool and under children. Finally on Friday, March 17 also at 10:00 a.m. we will have a special St. Patrick's Day story time. There will be a Readers Theater presentation of an Irish folk tale appropriate for all ages. Come and see some of our own GR students perform. We will also have craft time and a snack.
Please join us for any or all of the activities. No registration is required and all activities will have adult supervision.
Also, we are offering another technology help session at 10:00 on Saturday, March 18. This is for anyone needing more info on using their tech devices. Bring your device and any questions. A GR student will be here to assist you.
Story time this Tuesday, March 7 will be done by Dean Staack. This takes place at 10:00 a.m. in the upstairs of the library.
