Mini Makers

July is Maker Month! Children ages 4-8 are invited to build, tinker, and create while doing hands-on, interactive STEAM projects. Join us most Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons from July 5 through 26.  We will be using the “Creativity Cart." Come in after lunch and be creative at the library and make something to carry home.   Get those creative ideas flowing!    
I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

Teen Book Club

Noah and Jude are as tight as twins should be until one day they are not.  As children, Noah and Jude divided up the world -- the sun, the moon, the stars, the oceans, the trees, the flowers, etc.  Jude gives up the sun for a drawing Noah has made.  Who is in the drawing?

Drama Rama

Dramatic play and improvisational games for kids ages 5 to 9 years of age. Children will have a blast using their imaginations to build new worlds together.  This weekly summer program is great for kids who wish to develop their language and speaking skills, practice creative and collaborative thought, strengthen social confidence, and/or just have fun with friends!
