What’s Happening at Your Local Library?
Our Summer Reading Challenge for 2021 has ended. We are pleased to announce the winners of the Grand Prizes: Kids ages 0-5 – Emmet Woischke (Water Fun Package), Kids ages 6-12 – Grace Herlensky (Ripstik and water Fun), Teen – Marguerite Maringer (Electric Scooter) and Adult – Susan Ferguson (Picnic at the Toledo Zoo Package). Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated! A total of 573 books were read and submitted in eight weeks of fun.
The weather has not cooperated with our Kite Flying at Perry’s Monument in August. We promise this event will be rescheduled in September! Be sure to check the signs posted around town for the date.
Tuesday, September 7th – 4 p.m.: Hot Wheels Night Returns!
Looking for something to do after school with your friends? Join us at the library to design your own race track for Hot Wheel cars. Who will have the fastest track? The longest track? We have everything needed: tracks, connectors, cars. Fun for all ages! A snack will be served.
Wednesday, September 15th – 5:30 p.m.: Words & Wine Book Club.
Join us and share a book you have read while enjoying a beverage of your own choosing. Even if you haven’t had time to read, you are welcome to join us to hear what others are suggesting. We can’t wait to hear what you have been reading!
Tuesday, September 21st – 4p.m.: Nature Scavenger Hunt.
Are you looking for something fun to do after school? Join us for a “Nature Scavenger Hunt” at the entrance to Cooper’s Woods. We’ll have a list of things that can easily be found in nature. Depending on how many participants show up, we may divide into teams. All participants will receive a treat. Participants will be dismissed from the entrance of Cooper’s Woods between 4:30 and 5 p.m.
Wednesday, September 22nd – 1 p.m.: Coloring and Coffee.
Need a way to relieve stress? Adult coloring is a perfect stress release because they have intricate designs that challenge the fine motor skills and attention span of even the most detail-oriented adults. Adult coloring pages are fun and something you can lose yourself in. Hope you can join us to get over the “hump day.”
Tuesday, September 28th – 5 p.m.: Lego Night Resumes!
We are excited to be able to hold Lego Club again in the library! Come build a creation that will remain on display in the library for one week.
