Next Week’s Events for Kids & Teens

Perler beadsI have good news! Next week is the third week of the month. Why is that good news? Because it means we have Craftastic for ages 6-12 after school on Monday (9/18) and Craftastic for ages 12-18 at 4:30 on Wednesday (9/20). Both groups will be creating jewelry or decorations from perler beads. Don’t know what perler beads are? Come and find out. You can design and create very cool things with them!

Teen Volunteers Needed

Child readingHCPL has a program called Book Buddies which involves letting children ages 4-8 work on their reading skills with the individualized, nonjudgmental help of a volunteer in 7th – 12th grades. If you think your teenaged sons or daughters would be good at working with younger children, please encourage them to volunteer. They would need to complete an application (available at the customer service desk of the library) by Sept. 13 and attend a training session on Thursday, Sept. 14, from 4:30-6:00. They would also need to commit to coming and working with a child every Thursday afternoon from Sept. 21-Nov. 16. It will be very rewarding to see their “Little Buddy’s” reading improve as a result of the time they spend together.
