Wakarusa Public Library Introduces Family Friendly Programming

by Shondra Brown on January 19, 2015

Looking for a family friendly program that is geared towards the whole family?  Join us on Thursday, February 19, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. for our Valentine Mystery checkout program!  Adults and Young Adults will enjoy “Blind Date with a Book”, and younger participants will get to “Unwrap a Surprise” book.  Clues or hints will be given as to what the book is about, but you won’t know what the title is until you unwrap your book when you get home!  Participants will also have a chance to make and take a valentine card, and hear the story A Crankenstein Valentine, by Samantha Berger.  Registration is required, and all ages are welcome to attend!

Story Hour children will hear “Silver Stories” from Caldecott Honor books, including Hondo & Fabian by Peter McCarty, on February 2 and February 3 at 10:15 a.m.  The sessions are for children ages 3 – 5 years old who are registered for the program.  

Beginning Story Hour, ages 18 – 36 months, will shake their sillies out and sing to a story on February 4, at 10:00 a.m.  Registered children will enjoy a craft or an activity, and will hear The Coziest Place by James Michalak. 

Young Adults are invited to our Young Adult Winter Reading Warm-up session on January 30, from 3:15 – 4:00 p.m.  This will be a time for registered participants to come together and share, in a group setting, what books they are reading for the Winter Reading program, or just visit together while sharing refreshments. 

 “God Gave Us Heaven”, by Bergren & Bryant, and “The Bicycle: Save the Children”, by Colin Thompson, have been donated to the library by the Wakarusa Public Library Board of Trustees in memory of Eric Birk.

            “Fire-Bringer” is currently running on our Dial A Story Line at 862-4441.  Hear the Indian story of how mankind got fire.
