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.
Today’s experiment is pretty easy to do. All you need is milk, dish soap and food coloring. Follow these instructions. Even younger kids can do this one with a little supervision. Just remember not to drink the milk afterwards!
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.)
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.
This is it, the last week of our unusual, COVID-era summer reading program. Thanks for coming along with us on this journey. We hope to keep seeing you in the library!

If you haven’t already, check out our Alice in Wonderland Virtual Escape Room.
Because we couldn’t do a real-life escape room this year, we have created a virtual escape room. It can be enjoyed by one person alone or a family working together. Kids 10 and up (or maybe a little younger given how clever you readers are) can enjoy!
Big thanks to Casey’s for the donation of 50 frozen treat coupons! The first 50 kids to pick up their packets this week (starting Monday at noon) will get a free treat!
Our theme this week is everyday heroes. It’s a good time to think about who you admire and how you can be a hero yourself.

Welcome to week three! Can you believe we’re almost half-way done? This week we’re doing some projects related to mythology and tall tales. Do you have a favorite?
We do still have some week two packets. Look in the box behind week three.

There are lots of examples of gnome and fairy gardens online. Here are a few tutorials that might be helpful if you decide to make one.
These aren’t exactly the same as our solar distiller project, but very close:
