The library is currently open and will be open until 5:00 pm. Take care when traveling to and from the library, if you choose to come in and say HI!
Lego Library will meet today from 3:30-4:30. Also, if the weather is bad on Monday, the library will be closed. Please call ahead before attempting to make the trip. Thanks! Stay warm!
Tickets are now available for “Taste of Albion” which will be held at the library from 6:00-8:00 Friday, November 18th. This is an open house type fundraiser for those ages 21 and older. Tickets are $20.00 and can be purchased at the library or the Chamber. Come join the fun!
Parents/Guardians of the Crazy 8s K-2 group: I will be at Boone Central after school today (near the buses) to walk with any itty-bitties that may not know their way to the library. If you wish, I will ATTEMPT to be there each week to walk with this group… Unfortunately, it’ll be harder for me to be there on Wednesdays to walk with the big guys. And, my apologies to the St. Michael’s families as I won’t be able to meet them. I am SO excited to get this program started!
Upcoming kids’ events at the library THIS WEEK… Tuesday: K-2 Crazy 8s (Members only); Wednesday: 3-5 Crazy 8s (Members only); Friday morning, Story Hour; Friday after school: Lego Library! Don’t miss the FUN!
I’m continuing to work through the Crazy 8s Math program and wanted to pass on this info from the website: “Crazy 8s is designed for 12-16 kids per club (K-2/3-5): enough critical mass to build energy and make it fun, but still manageable by a grown-up. Clubs smaller than 12 won’t work because several activities need enough kids to complete the steps, and larger than 16 won’t have sufficient supplies.” We ask kids to “attend every week.” Please let me know if this is of an interest to you/your kids. It should be a TON of fun! Currently, I have Tuesdays or Wednesdays available… Thoughts??? I should also mention: It’s an 8-week course and if it’s a hit, there are 2 other sessions available. This time, sessions include: Time of Your Life, Glow in the Dark Geometry, Flying Marshmallows, etc. And, I can take FIVE from each grade. Call 402-395-2021 with any questions!
Due to scheduling and the CRAZINESS of Albion weekends, we’re considering moving Story Hour to Fridays beginning this fall. Typically, our audience is preschooler-aged and younger so, we thought this might be a great option with preschool normally not meeting on Friday… Plus the day-cares could possibly join us! Please let us know what you think. We always welcome your opinions. THANKS!
