Activities at the LibraryFifty-four children stopped by the Atkinson Public Library Tuesday, to put together some really cute Crafts for Kids with family in mind for the holidays, and color holiday bookmarks. Wednesday found forty-seven little ones making Christmas wreaths and tree ornaments, and coloring bookmarks and coloring pages. Listening to Christmas music and eating “trees” and candy canes topped it off! Thursday, was Movie Day, when forty-four children and two adults came to the library to watch a movie about pets, and snacked on popcorn and juice boxes! Starting this week, the library is having a scavenger hunt – be sure to stop in and join in the fun!
