Happy Earth Day! We are celebrating by sharing everything you need to grow a plant: a little biodegrable pot, some potting soil and a couple of seeds for either green beans or sunflowers.
Plant kits are free to anyone of any age while supplies last. We will also be offering a fabulous prize to whoever grows the most magnificent plant, so be sure to share a picture with us when your plant is flourishing!
Drop into the library all week and search for pictures of Easter eggs to win a treat!
Valentine’s Day is coming soon! Although we are open to the public again (Yippee!), we are not doing in-person programs yet. So, we will be putting together packets of fun for pre-readers and readers. Each packet will have coloring pages, worksheets, a craft, a recipe to try at home and some candy! You can pick them up in the lobby of the library starting at noon on Friday, February 12th. They will be there until we run out.
Let’s get ready for Valentine’s Day with this fun flying cupid experiment. All you need is some tissue paper and a balloon. Static electricity is cool! If you want to learn more about how this experiment works, check out this video.
As you may know, this is the time of year when we encourage you to donate to the Lonsdale Area Food Shelf by waiving late fees for donations. Since we are currently not open to the public, we are not collecting food donations this year, but you can still drop off donations at Lonsdale Liquors or you can donate by check or credit card. Check out the LAFS website for more details.
Then just give us a call anytime from December 7 to December 19 to let us know you have donated and we will waive up to $10 per card in late fees. (Yes, we’re trusting you.) Happy holidays!
Have a favorite cookie recipe you’d like to share? Drop it off at the library or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking for new cookie recipes to try? Stop by starting on Monday, November 24 and pick up a copy of the recipes contributed. We will also share here on the website.
Because you can never have too many Christmas cookies! (Just don’t eat them all in one sitting.)
Twix was the scrappy six seed that would not be denied. Its path to victory included beating number three Skittles, number two Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and number one Snickers!
Thanks to everyone who participated. Enjoy all your candy this year. Happy Halloween!
Come to the library on Friday, October 30 or Saturday, October 31 to get your party in a bag! We’re sad that we won’t be able to offer our usual party, but instead, you can bring the fun home. Packets will include coloring pages, activity sheets, a recipe, a craft, a prize or two and a bag of candy! Choose pre-reader, reader or teen/tween.
We’re down to the top four, all chocolate candy bars. It’s clear what the people like! Vote here.
