Trivia Saturday

Every week of Summer Reading kids can answer literary trivia questions. The best part is we’ll put the books with the answers on a special book cart in the Children’s Section.

New sheets each Saturday of Summer Reading.

Completed trivia sheets earn you an extra ticket for a chance at prizes.

And if you like one of the books you can put it on hold and take it home the following week.

Summer Reading Showdown

The Summer Reading Showdown is fun way for you to show your support for the library. Your favorite Disney heroes and villains will be battling all summer starting in June.

Votes are cast by placing money into the bottles representing the characters of your choice. The two characters in each bracket with the least amount of money are eliminated every Saturday until the winners of each bracket face off on the final week.

All proceeds go to the library.

LEGO® Junior Maker Club

LEGO® Junior Maker Club! Make, tinker, build, and explore with LEGO®. The Junior Maker club encourages children and families to take a hands-on, minds-on approach to “making” with the use of LEGO® bricks while tying in a love for reading.

No registration is required. This is a child/parent event so everyone should bring their imaginations and be ready to build! Meets every Monday from 6:30-7:30 pm (Starting Jan. 9th).

Made possible by a donation to the library by LEGO® Systems, Inc. and the Association for Library Services to Children.

Storytime

This summer we are combining the Infant storytime and the toddler and preschool storytime.

Explore action rhymes, songs, and stories. After books, gather with us at the back table for a special activity. No registration is required and siblings are welcome.

Infants will have an age appropriate activity instead of a craft.

(Recommended for birth-age 6 with a caregiver. 30-45 minute storytime. Tuesdays 10:30-11:15am (Starting Jan. 10).

Caring Hearts Pet therapy- Tales With T.A.I.L.S.

Caring Hearts Pet Therapy program seeks to improve children’s reading and communication skills with the assistance of trained therapy animal teams. The children are encouraged to read, engage, and connect with the pet.

Bring your favorite book or two or choose one here at the library to share with one of our animal friends. Children will have the opportunity to read individually or in small groups with each of the animals at the session depending on the number of children registered and pets available. Animals are attentive listeners and their presence increases a child’s comfort in reading aloud.

Recommended for ages K-5th grade. No registration is required. Caring Hearts Meets Tuesdays at 6 pm (Starting Jan. 10th).

All team members have completed volunteer training, practice sessions, and have current clearances.
