NORTH WEBSTER — It’s a month of contests at North Webster Community Public Library. In recognition of National Family History Month, the October reading contest is all about family. Read a book, listen to an audio book or watch a DVD with the word of a relative, such as mother, father, sister, brother, aunt, cousin, etc., in the title. Fill out a drawing entry slip with the title, along with your name and phone number, for a chance to win a prize. Fill out an entry slip for every title you check out throughout the month for multiple chances to win.
Have fun being a family sleuth while playing in the Family History Mystery Contest. Follow the clues posted each week as you try to guess who among the various characters stole the family heirloom. Play each week throughout October. The more times played the more chances to win. A drawing will be held the end of the month to determine the winner. The drawing prize is a mystery too.
Take the Test for “Mature Kids” in a trivia contest with questions boomers will remember from youth. Fill out an entry form and see how many questions you can answer. A drawing will be held at the end of the month with a prize for the lucky winner.
Preschool Story Time has begun its fall session with children ages three to six having fun learning through stories, activities and take-home crafts. Preschool Story Time is held 10:30 a.m. every Wednesday through Nov. 24. Their younger siblings can have fun learning too at Baby and Toddler Time held 11 a.m. every Tuesday through Nov. 23.
While the children are visiting the library, they can earn a treat by searching through the Youth Department for the hidden paper cats. Also, children can pick up a take-home craft or scavenger hunt activity sheet. And of course, don’t forget to check out books.
