Fall Programs

Summer is almost over and the library staff would like to remind everyone about some upcoming events that are taking place the end of August and the beginning of September.

The Library is rolling out the fall programs on Wednesday, August 27th at 2:00 with an visit from the  Rolling Hills Zoo.  The staff from the zoo will be doing a program called “Animals Around the World.”  All ages are welcome but any child under the age of three needs to have a parent or guardian with them throughout the program. This event was made possible by Star Seed. 

Story Hour begins on Friday, August 29th.  Enrollment forms are at the library.  This program is offered to preschool children ages 3-5 that are potty trained and mature enough to be separated from their parent for a 45 minute time span.  Stories, short videos, crafts, games and snacks are incorporated into the programs.

“Adventure Awaits” begins on Wednesday, September 3rd at 2:05 for the  Wednesday After Class (WAC) program.  Enrollment forms are at the library for this program also.  This program for grades K-4 is going to be full of games, videos, crafts and other activities.   

There is a sign-up sheet in the library to help with some of the programs by volunteering to bring something to make a snack or a craft. 

Please have your child signed up by August 25th so the staff can have appropriate materials ready for the programs.  When you sign up your child, let the staff know if you want your children to check out books and/or videos and how many.  That will help us all keep track of items checked out from the library.

The annual city wide garage sale is on September 6th this year.  That means that the library will have lots of cool books outside on the sidewalk available for people to browse through and to leave a donation to the Library Update Fund.  While you are looking outside you can step into the community room and see the updates that have been installed in this room and also in the restrooms.  We will be outside from 8-12 so stop by and look at all the goodies.  There will be lots of children’s books and lots of science fiction and fantasy books. 

Feel free to contact the library for more information on any of these events.
