Library Project Schedule

We will be painting the northeast section of the library and the office and then carpeting the whole library.

Our schedule is:

November 19 & 20 – box up books

November 21 – move shelves 

November 22 to 25 – Closed for Thanksgiving 

November 26 to 30 – paint

December 1 – start carpeting

*Books that we put in boxes will stay there till we are done carpeting the section they were in.  Please stock up on books before November 19th.  This will mainly effect the adults since the kids books are on shelves that do not need to be moved.  

*We will still be open so dvds, kids books and other books, that are not on shelves that need moved, can be checked out.  We will try to organize new books and Christmas books so they are available during this time as well.

Last Book Club

We held our last book club of the year on Wednesday. The kids started off discussing their book then they moved on their craft. For their craft, they filled bottles with layers of colored sand. After they finished their craft, the library gifted them with three books.

Lego Workshop

The Lego workshop we held this last Tuesday was a huge success. A good time was had by all. The big kids spent their day building Lego balloon cars. To begin Shane instructed them on how to build the base of the car. After everyone got their car working, we allowed them to make any modifications they wanted to make. Then they spent the rest of the hour racing their cars. While they did this the little kids explored the several stations we set up for them. They built cars, houses, towers, and animals. They also got to experiment putting Lego bricks into playdough. After the kids got done cleaning, they grabbed a cookie and went home.
