NORTH WEBSTER — “Let the Games Begin” at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 29, when professional actor and storyteller Terry Lynch performs as ancient athlete “Discus Meter” who leads the audience back through time to discover the origins of the Olympic Games and today’s most popular sports. As entertaining as it is educational, this is a North Webster Library Summer Reading Program event open to all. Children who are signed up for the Summer Reading Program should bring along their Reading Passports to get stamped for extra credit toward prizes.
If your child isn’t signed up for the Summer Reading Program, they can do so at any time up until July 30 when the program ends. The sooner they get signed up, the more opportunity they have to earn prizes for reading.
Bring the kids to a movie matinee at the library with two showings, one at 11 a.m. and the other at 3 p.m. on Friday, June 30. Showing is a family-oriented comedy about a hockey playing chimpanzee. The movie is rated PG and runs 93 minutes. Bring your own beverages to drink and help yourself to the free popcorn.
Family Story Time continues at 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. every Tuesday. Bring the kids to join the fun with stories and crafts.
In the Adult Services Department, Voyager Book Club will meet at 10 a.m. Monday, June 27, to discuss alternative history books. If you’ve read a good one lately, come join the discussion.
Fruit lovers will enjoy Revolving Recipe Round-Up at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 28. Bring a dish prepared with fruit to share and sample along with the recipe. The library provides the table service and free coffee. Revolving Recipe Round-Up is a great way to build your recipe file while enjoying good food and fellowship.
Work off some of that good food at “Let’s Move!” at 6 p.m. every Thursday. This is an informal time of dancing for fun and fitness. Using dance videos, we try different dancing styles while having a good time learning new dance steps together.
