Activities center around the statewide theme. Children who have finished kindergarten through sixth grade are invited to share in the weekly fun of book talks, worm races, and treasure exchanges. Opening day is held in June after all schools have finished for the year. Donated door prizes are awarded each week. The group meets each Thursday afternoon, 2:30-3:30, to share thoughts on books. Members are encouraged to read independently and to share their thoughts on favorite and less than favorite books. The summer ends with the annual "Awards/Pizza/Swim Party." This program is free.
"A LIBRARY CHRISTMAS PARTY"
Early each December, the staff of the library invites the community to help decorate the library's Christmas tree. It takes just a few moments for the hundreds of ornaments to magically transform the huge tree into a glittery, sparkly centerpiece. Seasonal stories are told, a few carols are sung, cookies and juice are served, and Santa pays a special visit to hear everyone's wishes.
