Maker Fridays…..Sewing a Pillowcase

013017sewFourteen children in grades 3 – 7 are learning how to sew a pillowcase at the Hildreth Public Library.  Volunteer, Pat Beck is working with the kids every Friday after school until the project is completed later this month.   The maker class began with each participant choosing his/her pre-cut material)  There was a large selection of material to choose from such as John Deere, owls, Minions, dogs, Spiderman, Disney and wildlife.  Next the students folded and ironed the pre-cut piece of material and pinned it to another piece of material.  Sewing those two pieces together on a sewing machine was the final step for the first day.  Follow us next week to see what we accomplish on Day 2.

Folksinger performs at Hildreth Public Library

002Adam Miller, folksinger, storyteller and autoharp virtuoso, performed on Wednesday, September 16 at the Hildreth Public Library.  Singing through history was the theme of the program.  The audience enjoyed the program and sang along to several folk songs.  A great time for community residents of all ages!

Middle School Students Visit Public Library

The Wilcox-Hildreth 7th & 8th grade middle school students participated in a library scavenger hunt at our library.  Students worked in pairs to locate information, books and more.  The 5th & 6th grades visited the library last week.004

After-School Program has Begun!

School has started and so has the Library After-School Program. 
We have been busy learning how to make healthy snacks and eating 
them too!  We also made a "marble run" that went across the 
library and ended in the book drop.  The program is for youth
in grades K - 8.  Come join the fun!005

Community Heroes

Fire fighters and EMT’s from the Hildreth Fire Department presented a program on fire safety to area youth. Children were able to look at the fire and ambulance equipment as well as hold a fire hose and knock over a safety cone with the water. Our last summer reading program ended with a “splash” as kids (and some adults) were soaked from the fire hoses. Thank you HVFD! We appreciate your service to our community!

Military Heroes

Today we had a visit from Bill Bunger, a community military hero.  He shared interesting information with us about flying a helicopter while in Vietnam.  We enjoyed seeing the model of his helicopter, helmet, prisoner story on the helicopter, how water tanks were moved, how large the helicopter was and how many people fit in the helicopter.  Our favorite, though, was the story of the jeep!  Thanks for visiting our library!002

Every Hero has a Story

We have been busy this summer at the Library.  In May and June we had three youth book clubs and a Pre-K through 2nd grade story time.  At the end of June we had a picnic in the park and was entertained by Fax Gilbert who performed magic, mime and masks.  Superhero training day was next and then Trooper Lewis brought his dog to our library for animal heroes.  We still have two programs to go….military heroes and community heroes.  Please join us for lots of fun.
