Library programs return after the holiday hiatus
After a brief break for the holidays, Tuesday Storytime is back at Superior Public Library. Storytime has many benefits for kids of all ages including developing imagination, discovering new ideas, improving listening skills and enhancing vocabulary — not to mention developing an appreciation for stories and books. Join us every Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. for stories, crafts and fun. If a morning Storytime isn't possible for you, we also offer an evening Pajama Storytime once a month. This month, Pajama Storytime will be held at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 25.
Our remodeling project is officially underway. Carpet installation has begun in the phase one area, and the construction crew will soon begin installing the new circulation desk. Once the new circulation desk is installed, work will begin on the new computer lab and a new "creative" meeting space that will be open to the public and perfect for groups like quilters, crafters and other makers. You can follow along with the progress of our remodel on our new remodeling blog, superiorpubliclibraryremodel.weebly.com.
LEGO Club is a popular weekly program offered by the library for builders of all ages. We make our Lego collection available 6-8 p.m. every Monday in the Children's Room. Meet up with other young LEGO fans and build a masterpiece using the library's huge collection of LEGOs.
The library's book club meets at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 6 to talk about "The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry" by Gabrielle Zevin. Join us for a spirited discussion with other eager readers. The library's book club is open to all.
Kids and teens are invited to participate in our Winter Reading Program. Reading logs are available in the Children's Room. Curl up with a good book this winter and earn prizes for reading.
