Programs at the Library

There's still time to get in on the fun of Shark Week at the library!  Wednesday we have Alex Brasili from Herring Gut coming to talk to us about sharks, whales, dolphins and other sea creatures at 1 PM.  Immediately following, we will have some shark and fishy snacks while watching some fun shark videos, such as clips from Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.  This program is aimed at those entering kindergarten and up.  

Then, on Friday, we have our last Friday story time at 11 AM, which will also feature sharks.  After Friday we are moving to Tuesdays at 10:30.  In the afternoon, older children can work on making a shark video starting at 1:30 before playing Minecraft at 2:30.

Not interested in sharks?  There's still lots of stuff going on!  Click on "Read More" to find out what other options you have.

On Wednesday evening at 7 PM, there is a reading & book signing by author Gwen Southgate. Her memoir is about being an evacuee from London's Old South Bank, a poor, gritty Cockney area of London.  The author will read short excepts and answer questions.  Signed copies will be available for sale.

Thursday afternoon continues our weekly robotics program for those entering grades 6 and up at 1:30 in the afternoon in the teen room.  Come on by to try to make the Lego Mindstorm robot navigate the course.  On Thursday evening you have two choices!  You can come to our annual meeting at 6:30, followed by John Falla's talk on Mary Elinor Jackson and Lillius Gilchrest Grace, two remarkable 19th century women from Tenants Harbor.  If that doesn't interest you, Dr. Alden Josey will be discussing the adult stage of life, drawing on his experience as a Jungian psychoanalyst.

Finally, we will close out the week with a scavenger hunt for kids to get them acquainted with the new building. The difficulty of the hunt will increase with the age of the child.  This program will also conclude our summer reading program.  Drop in any time between 9 AM and noon on Saturday for the fun!
