We’re making some changes to our August programming schedule! Our Surprise Activity at the Millbrook Branch was so popular that we decided to extend the activity to our Bruce Johnston Branch as well.
If you missed any of the fun activities from July (such as tie dye, string art, and candle making) you will be able to participate at our Bruce Johnston Branch on Thursdays.
We are also changing our Fridays around. We will be introducing Imagination Station, activities that revolve around the use of imagination and creativity to either solve a problem or to think ahead. One of our activities will be the creation of a time capsule which will sit on our library shelf to be re-opened again in one year. We will also be doing an obstacle course, Lego challenge, and an escape room. Do you think you have what it takes to solve the clues and unravel the mystery?
With the help of our two new staff members- Dee and Rebecca- we will also be including Saturday morning activities at the Millbrook Branch! For the month of August, we are going to be focusing on our TD summer reading program. Each week, staff will read a book (or part of a book) which will be followed up by a fun activity or craft.
At our Bruce Johnston Branch, we continue to have our Outdoor Storytime, No Bake Cooking Club, and Lego Challenge. Check out our social media to see some of the cool pictures that we’ve taken so far.
Our Community Threads and Cookbook Book Club are cancelled for the month of August but stay tuned for the fall! We have a variety of interesting workshops lined up, which include working with paint and paper. If you have a crafty skill that you’d like to share with others, please let us know! We’d like to expand our Community Threads to include more than just knitting and crochet.
We’re also looking for your feedback regarding our summer programming. Did you like the activities that we had? Were you looking for something else that we didn’t provide? Please let us know! We will be providing a survey for patrons to fill out at the end of the summer to see how we did.
We recently found out (after much time spent filling out the paperwork) that our library has been the recipient of a Seniors Community Grant. This means that we will be providing a variety of programs and activities to assist the senior population in our community combat social isolation. Some of the programs will include the use of a VR headset and Google maps, an expressive art therapist, and Tech Time. Stay tuned for more information!
