Halloween Party in a Bag

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.

Friday 1:00-6:00
Saturday 10:00-2:00

 

Virtual Storytimes

Hello storytimers!  We have missed you!  It’s not exactly the same, but Ms. Susan will be creating virtual storytime videos that will be shared on our Facebook page.  Each weekly episode will premiere Monday at 6:30, starting August 31st.   You don’t need a Facebook account to watch.

Our storytimes are designed for pre-schoolers, but feel free to watch at any age!

 

Something for everyone!

Fun for kids

We’ve got some new activities in our window.  You can do them without coming into the library.  Just follow the arrows!

Jazz up your walk with this Lonsdale scavenger hunt.  You can pick up a physical copy in the library if you prefer.

Fun for grown-ups

Book Chats:

Your library staff loves recommending books.  We do it in person when we can, but since we’re seeing fewer of you and spending less time together when we do, we’ve decided to go digital.  We will take a few minutes to share a few titles that we love and why we recommend them.  The videos will be available on our YouTube channel and our Facebook page.  Up first, Marguerite talks psychological thrillers.

Because we can’t travel abroad, check out Get Your Guide for virtual tours and experiences.  There’s never been a better time to be an armchair traveler.

Family Fun:

Did you know there’s a drive-in theater just up the road in Elko New Market?  Check out the details on their website.

Take the kids camping in your backyard.  Make s’mores, tell ghost stories, listen to the birds.  You can even break out some scouting-style crafts like whittling, making lanyards,  or making leaf rubbings.  (Of course, not all activities are suitable for all ages.)
