NORTH WEBSTER — The youth Summer Reading Program continues at North Webster Community Public Library. If you haven’t signed your child up yet, there is still plenty of time to participate and earn prizes for reading.
There will be lots of prizes given away at Family Bingo at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 3. It’s fun and easy to play for kids of all ages. Multiple rounds are played with each round lasting until everyone bingos. Everyone wins and goes home with prizes. Family Bingo is open to all children.
Family Story Time is held every Tuesday until July 16, with two sessions at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. Kids are learning about outer space through stories and crafts. Although geared to ages 3-6, siblings are welcome to join in.
Friday, July 5, is Make It/Take It Craft Day in the Youth Department. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., a craft will be available for kids to make or take home to complete. Therapy dogs Echo and Susie will also be at the library that day to read with the kids from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Children can schedule a private 15-minute session to read to one of the dogs and practice their oral reading skills. To secure a reading session, stop by the youth services desk or call (574) 834-7122 ext. 202.
Adults can secure a spot at the Mixed Media Workshop at 2 p.m. Monday, July 8, by pre-registering at the circulation desk. Artist Golden Seaton will provide instructions for making a watercolor collage art piece using repurposed paper. Cost of the workshop is $15, due when registering and non-refundable.
Also in the Adult Service Department, Knit 1 Crochet 2 meets at 2 p.m. Tuesday, July 2, to work on a service project knitting and crocheting warm hats and mittens for children at North Webster Elementary School this winter and lap blankets, hats and fingerless mittens for Kosciusko Home Care and Hospice patients. Items can also be made at home and brought in to donate. If you don’t knit or crochet but want to help, yarn donations are always welcome.
The library will be closed all day Thursday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day.
