Harry Potter Book Night

Eight young wizards attended Harry Potter Book Night at Schuyler Public Library on Feb. 6.  The group played Dragon Egg Volleyball, made Hedwigs, played Harry Potter Would You Rather, and took a Triwizard Trivia Test.  Reagan Zavadil proved to have the most knowledge of Harry Potter, getting a perfect score on the trivia test.

STEAM creation

Be sure to stop in and build something creative with the library’s new STEAM supplies.  Just use your imagination, display your creation, and leave the materials for the next person.  Cody Garland was busy this week building the Eiffel Tower with the Architectural Engineering kit.


Stop in and see the new STEAM cart and supplies in the Children’s Library, courtesy of Schuyler Community School’s Sixpence program. The kits provide activities for children ages 4 and older, with each kit being labeled for the appropriate age group. It is a wonderful addition to the library, and the staff is very appreciative of this generous donation
