Do you have books that you’re looking to get rid of? As long as they are in good condition and are not reference materials, consider donating them to us! The books that don’t get added to our shelves may be sold at our book sale in February. The funds from the sale will go towards programming for people of all ages. Did I mention that your donation is tax-deductible? To donate, simply bring in the books during our normal library hours. (No after-hours drop offs, please)
Due to the combination of heat, smoke and fumes from repaving the parking lot, outside storytime for this Friday is cancelled. Hope to see you next week!
The summer reading program week six packets for teens and tweens included online color perception tests. We decided to share the links here.
And, if you want more fun, explore your season to find clothing colors that make you look good!
The library will close at 3:00 pm on April 2nd. We will be open our regular hours on Saturday.
Just because we can’t host large gatherings doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about our patrons. Check out our Facebook page every week for library interactions!
Monday at 6:30pm – Storytime with Susan and Lois
Wednesday at 3:30pm – Book chat with Marguerite or Penny
Check out Susan’s “under the snow” storytime on our Facebook page. Then make her cool hedgehog craft using this super-easy recipe for play dough.
- 1 cup of flour
- 1/4 cup of salt
- 1/2 cup of water
- 3-5 drops of natural food coloring
- Mix together the flour and the salt.
- Mix together 1/2 cup of warm water with a few drops of food coloring. (We tried to get brown by mixing red, blue and yellow, but the results were not great. Basically, pick a color you like and go for it!)
- Slowly pour the water into the flour mixture, stirring as you pour. Stir until combined, then knead with your hands until the flour is completely absorbed. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour until it doesn’t stick at all.
