WHAT IS DYSLEXIA? A Virtual Talk with Dr. Stephanie Gottwald
Thursday, October 29th at 6:30pm
REGISTER TO GET THE ZOOM LINK!
November 3rd from 10am – 6pm (or while supplies last!)
Come pick up a bag with some dried beans, a template, and some glue to create some awesome art! We have an annual tradition of having bean art out on Election Day so we thought we carry on the tradition. Contact-less pick up at the front of the library for all ages! Weather permitting!
STORYTIME TAKE OUT!
The session is full and our waitlist is full! We will have another session starting in January!
What it is: Each week we will provide you with a storytime packet. Our themes will follow the alphabet! You will have script with rhymes, song, instructions for science experiments, and whatever else activity we have. You will also have a bag of stuff to go along with that! First off, you will get a pizza box felt board to keep from week to week. You will also get felt pieces, other props, and/or craft or science experiment supplies. You will also have books to go along with the themes. You ONLY have to return the books. You keep everything else.
How it works: You register here (or give us a call at 978-388-8148 x4 to get signed up) each week you’d like to receive take out. We will let you know what kinds of things to expect each of the week so that you can pick and choose which weeks you’d like! You can then pick it up that week starting on Monday at 10am just like you would our curbside books. Call the main number 978-388-8148 when you are in the parking lot and we’ll bring it out to you!
Why do it?: First of all, it’s fun! Also, we give you everything you will need to do this. You can do it on your own time and at your own pace. Since we cannot see you in person, the next best thing is the have an interactive experience with your child at home since kids at this age do learn more and better with in person interactions.
Virtual Discussion about Homeschooling!
Check back for the next date!
Join several veteran homeschoolers as they talk about their experience with homeschooling with varying ages. This Zoom event will allow for questions and answers, give you some knowledge of the homeschooling community in our area, and give you some resources to use. This program is intended for those who are homeschooling on their own or are planning to, but everyone is welcome to join! Please register as you will be sent the Zoom meeting login prior to the meeting.
