NORTH WEBSTER — As we return to our routines after the holidays and face a long winter ahead, it is common to feel a little let down. Chase the winter blues away at North Webster Community Public Library’s January Bash 6 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 12. The event will be held in the North Webster Community Center Banquet Hall where Main on Main Comedy Improv Troupe will entertain with an evening of good clean fun. A recap of 2016 will be presented by the library staff as well. Refreshments will also be served. The event is free and open to the public. The library will close early at 5:30 p.m. that day so the staff can attend the party.
All year long, the library provides programs and services for patrons of all ages. Baby lapsit and toddler time serve our tiniest patrons and their parents with a fun time of exploring books and stories together along with meaningful play. Parents are also provided with resources for early literacy development. Baby lapsit, for ages birth to 18 months, meets 11 a.m. every Friday in January. Beginning Jan. 10, toddler time meets at 11 a.m. four Tuesdays in January. Registration is required, since space is limited. Contact the youth services desk to sign up.
Imaginations soar during lego club 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14. For kids age five to 12, lego club meets the second Saturday each month for lego-building fun. Parents are encouraged to join in and it is a great way for parents and kids to spend quality time together. Legos are provided and no registration is needed.
The library’s monthly drum circle will be opening up for new participants at their February and March meetings 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1 and March 1. Participants learn the techniques of meditative drumming as Pirkko Miller guides them in achieving the therapeutic effects of drumming. Drum circle meets the first Wednesday evening each month. After the March meeting, the group will close to new members. If interested, be sure to attend the February or March meetings.
The start of the new year is also a good time to get involved in the library’s many monthly programs that include make and take card class, R.E.A.D. book club, voyager book club, writer’s corner, and revolving recipe round-up.
