Fall into Reading

Summer is the busiest time at the library.  We get lots of vacation visitors and have a great deal of programming.  Now that autumn has arrived, we are looking for new ways to serve our patrons.  Are you interested in joining a book club?  Do you have an idea for a children’s program?  Contact the library at 467-2577 or stop by to speak to a desk clerk.  We are here to serve YOU!

We Love Our Local Heroes!

We saw lots of local heroes this summer.  Thank you to Chris Zacharias and the other members of the Deposit Fire Department who visited Toddler Time and Story Time on July 22nd and July 23rd. All of the children enjoyed learning about fire safety and firefighters’ equipment. Of course the most fun was getting to explore the fire trucks!

Thank you to school nurse Mrs. Lacey Diemer for visiting us during Toddler Time in July. The children enjoyed learning about what nurses mean to the community and what their job entails. Of course the thing they enjoyed the most was being able to try out nurse’s equipment such as the stethoscope and blood pressure cup. We really appreciate what nurses do and believe that they are everyday heroes!

Thank you to Mrs. Theresa Rajner and Mr. Ed Swartwout for bringing their therapy dogs for a visit during Story Time this summer. The children learned about how to feed dogs properly and how to approach them carefully.  Kids and dogs both enjoyed getting to know each other.  Dogs can be heroes too!

The library was very pleased to spotlight so many local heroes this summer and grateful to all who gave their time.

The summer is over, but the library’s Lego Club goes on.  If your kids are crazy about LEGOs, then this is the place for them! The library’s LEGO club meets once a month under the supervision of Mrs. Donna Armstrong.  Children between the ages of 7 and 12 are invited to come and express their creativity. Children have the option of building whatever they choose or trying to create a structure that meets the challenge of the month. All children will have a chance to share what they built with the group. Builders also have their creations displayed in the library until the next club meeting. Bring your imaginations! Bring your friends! The next club meeting will be Saturday, October 24th at 1:30 p.m.
