When kids can’t come to story time at the North Webster Public Library, Youth Services Librarian Pam Long (aka Mrs. Pam) takes story time to them. Every month, Mrs. Pam visits area preschools where she reads stories and leads the children in finger plays, songs and story board activities.
This week on Tuesday, she visited the North Webster Day Care. On Tuesday, Nov. 12, Mrs. Pam will be at North Webster Head Start. She will also visit the North Webster Elementary School’s Functional Skills Class that same day. The Ark Preschool will be treated to story time the following week. At 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. every Wednesday, Preschool Story Time is held at the library. The fall session will end Nov. 27 when the children will celebrate Thanksgiving with their very own finger food Thanksgiving Feast.
For adults, too much feasting can lead to too many pounds. The “Lose It @ The Library” weight loss support program can help you shed those extra pounds. This fun-loving group meets at 5:30 p.m. every Monday to support one another in achieving their loss goals through encouragement, accountability, education and walking. On Monday, Nov. 11, following weigh-in, participants will learn about exercise and what types of exercise opportunities are available.
At 10 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, the Glean Team will meet. If you’ve been doing genealogy for a while and would like to collaborate with other experienced family historians on genealogy projects, then join the Glean Team. In addition to helping each other with research, the group also works on local history projects from time to time and occasionally takes field trips to area cemeteries, other libraries and historical sites. The Glean Team meets the first, second and fourth Wednesday each month.
The Library will be saying farewell to intern Troy Carolus. Since the beginning of the school year, Troy has been working in the Youth Services Department 2 hours each school day as part of Wawasee High School’s Professional Career Internship Program. His duties included putting new due-date labels on books, assisting with updating spine labels, checking audio book cases for missing CD’s, stamping bookmarks, folding and stuffing newsletters, and many other tasks as needed.
“Troy’s love of organization and sorting has been a great asset to the library,” Youth Services Librarian Pam Long points out. “We have enjoyed his pleasant attitude and will miss him in the afternoons at the library.” Troy’s first trimester internship ends Nov. 7.
