Happy Library Card Signup Month! The library used to require a child to be at least 5 years old to get their first card. The Library Board recently changed this policy and now there is no age requirement. Come in soon and sign up your young child for the first and most important card they will ever own.
Fall Storytime is back every Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. from Sept. 17 through Nov. 12 in the Children’s Room Storyboat. Children of all ages are welcome to attend and no registration is necessary.
Good news for parents working 9-5: while you may be missing out on storytime, you can always pick up a craft project that has been prepared by our Children’s Room staff. September’s craft is an owl, and in October we will be making black cat headbands. Stay at the library to craft or bring your craft home. Either way your child will love spending a craft time with you.
Buzz Buczynski is our Artist of the Month through September. Come see his outdoor-themed creations in a variety of media such as watercolor, pencil and wood burning on ancient Lake Superior log slabs.
