What’s Happening at Erie Islands Library?
Hours: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.; Tuesday, Thursday from 3-7 p.m.
A suggestion was to hold our Tuesday activities at 3:30 p.m. as the children are dismissed from school. We heard. We listened. Thank you for this brilliant idea! Let us know if you have an activity or suggestion to improve our library.
We are starting to welcome our summer residents and visitors back to the library. We look forward to seeing everyone for our Summer Reading Program “Oceans of Possibilities.” We’ve got two great entertainers coming in June and activities throughout June and July. Check out the PIB Gazette early next month. Don’t miss out!
Thu., May 5th – 5 p.m.: DIY Wine Cork Grape Cluster – Let’s repurpose some of those wine corks into bunches of grapes! We have lots of corks, glue guns and embellishments. Join us for an hour of fun with friends!
Wed., May 11th – 5:30 p.m.: Movies & Munchies – A brand-new club of sorts is starting up at our library: “Movies & Munchies.” This club is for all those who love to watch movies, TV shows, series, anything that you watch! Share your favorites and suggest to others what you liked or did not like. Traditionally at the movies everyone gets “munchies” to enjoy. Bring your favorite movie munchies and beverages. Location: Lake Erie Islands Nature Center
Thu., May 12th – 5 p.m.: DIY Suncatchers for Teens and Adults – Come down to the library to make your very own suncatchers out of glass stones/gems and clear Elmer’s glue.
