NORTH WEBSTER — Bring the kids to the library next week during fall break for Super Hero BINGO at 1 p.m., Friday, Oct. 23.
It will be fun for the whole family as the kids play BINGO using cards with super hero characters on them. Library BINGOs are always a popular event with lots of prizes and chances to win. No one goes home empty handed.
Earlier in the week, preschoolers will learn about transportation and “How We Go” during Preschool Story Time at 10:30 a.m. or 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21. The young ones listen to stories, enjoy story boards and finger plays and do a themed craft. Geared for ages 3-5, the fall session runs every Wednesday morning through Nov. 11. Preschool Story Time is a fun way to introduce pre-literacy skills to young children and instill an enjoyment of reading.
Older kids like to listen to stories, too. Students in grades K-5 are invited to come to the library every Tuesday after school from 4-5 p.m. to listen to stories while doing crafts. It’s a constructive after school alternative to video games and cartoons. Library personnel ask parents to remain in the library during Tuesday Crafts and Stories time.
For adults who enjoy reading, the library offers two book clubs: READ that meets at 5:30 p.m. the third Monday each month and Voyager Book Club at 10 a.m. the fourth Monday. Voyager Book Club lets you choose your own book within the assigned genre, then share with others what you have read.
In READ Book Club, everyone reads and discusses the same book. This Monday, Oct. 19, the group will be discussing “The Lincoln Nobody Knew,” by Richard N. Current. It’s an interesting historical account of little known known facts about Abraham Lincoln. If you would like to join the discussion, stop by the circulation desk and pick up a copy.
At 10 a.m. Monday, Writer’s Corner will meet to share the essays they have written about “A History Lesson.” If you like to write, dash off an essay and bring it to Writer’s Corner to share. We never critique grammar or spelling. We focus on expressing our ideas in writing and encouraging one another.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming Friends of the library book sale, Oct. 29-31, where you will find thousands of gently used books, movies, CDs, games and puzzles for all ages at low bargain prices. You won’t want to miss this huge semi-annual sale; plus all proceeds go to support the work of the library.
