SYRACUSE — Syracuse Public Library has some fun activities planned for the week of Sept. 26-30.
Children Set To Learn About Hawaii
Children joining the Syracuse Public Library’s homeschool program will learn all about Hawaii, including its culture and geography, at the next session at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28, in the downstairs meeting room. Instructor Rebekah Sceniak will also share some of her experiences from her recent vacation to Hawaii.
Storytime continues to meet at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, too. Each week children enjoy stories and fun with friends. At the end, there is either crafts or coloring.
Older children and tweens can also attend Monday Funday at 4 p.m. Sept. 26. Emilia Layne will challenge them to complete a one-of-a-kind taste test challenge.
The Young Adult Services Department is pleased to have a Crunchyroll account now for its Anime Club, which will meet from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29. This account will open the way for club members to explore even more anime than previously available, including some of the latest titles just a day after they air in Japan.
Beyond anime and manga, club members will also discuss Japanese culture.
Mahjong continues at 10:15 a.m. every Monday and at 1 p.m. through October. Players of all levels are invited to attend, including those wanting to learn how to play.
A second board game sampler will be held at 1:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 26. Board game enthusiasts are encouraged to stop by to play.
Adult services librarian Becky Brower continues to offer chair yoga 9:30 a.m. each Thursday. Chair yoga is perfect for adults looking to improve their balance or for a less strenuous exercise.
Mark your calendars now for the library’s next open mic night, which will be at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7. Bring your favorite poem or short story or share an original piece you’ve written yourself. Each speaker will have five minutes to share. There will be light refreshments served.
