Mr. Whuffles sure misses tasting all your fingers in storytime. He is spending his days sitting on my desk, watching me enter all the cool new books. 

The Children's Room looks a lot different than it did before. All the Mind in the Making toys are sequestered until after the pandemic. Families are welcome to come in to choose books and magazines and DVDs. Or, you can always request curbside pick-up and have Mrs. Lewis be your personal book shopper. 

We may not be able to do in-person programs like story-time, but we do have some cool things happening and coming up. Take a look below!

The Great Pumpkin Reading Program should be so much fun! The whole family signs up for it. Everyone collectively keeps track of their reading hours (this include you mom and dad!). For every 5 hours that the family reads, they will earn a raffle ticket and a small trinket prize for the kids. Count your hours if you are reading alone, reading out loud to each other, or listening to audio books. Raffle tickets will be entered into our grand prize drawing for gift cards to Barnes and Noble.

Program starts September 22nd. Registration will be ongoing. The program ends, and winners will be announced on October 31st. Good luck!

Car Bingo for Books is on!

Friday, October 2nd, at 3:30

Registration is required to save your spot. And space is limited. We will meet in the back parking lot of the library (the new one, behind the church). Everyone will tune their radios to the same station and I will broadcast car bingo for books over the air! You can pick up your BINGO cards and tokens (as usual they will be Smarties:)) ahead of time, or when you arrive for the event. 

I will have a lovely masked assistant to wheel a cart of books around for BINGO winners to select their prizes. All participants will be in their cars, and flash their lights when they get a BINGO. It should be social distance fun! 

There may even be a door prize or two....

Register in person or over the phone. 508-886-4108 (then press option 5).
