Mark your calendars for the 2020 summer reading program! Join us in May, June, and July on A Hero’s Quest.
Kids ages 7 and up are invited get pumped up and prepared for their journey with Finer Physiques trainers on Monday, May 18 at 10 am. Each kid also will receive a map to guide them on their quest.
For 10 weeks, kids will be assigned a task to complete and there will be rewards along the way.
On Thursday, July 23 at 10 am, everyone will participate in a Hero’s Tournament to show off the skills they learned all summer during their quest.
Sponsored in part by a grant from Oklahoma Department of Libraries and Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Find out what happens when five friends discover an ancient stone box hidden in the forest … Join Miss Lyndsey in the Teen Funtivities Club this month as they explore The Sacrifice Box by Martin Stewart. Teens attending also will get to do craft projects like paint pumpkins and decoupage boxes.
The first Tuesday in October will kick off our Teen Funtivities Club! Teens ages 13-17 are invited to join Miss Lyndsey every Tuesday at 4 pm for book club discussion, creating and crafting, and just fun chatting about whatever. No pre-registration is necessary.
The second and fourth Fridays at 4 pm are game nights! Youth of all ages are welcome–bring your friends and your siblings! We have classic board games, multi-person card games, interactive games like Twister, and Nintendo Switch games.
Youth ages 9 and older who wish to play games on the public computers are required to use Chromebooks issued by the Children’s Librarian. They must present their Library card to access a laptop–no exceptions.
Public computer use specifically for gaming by minors is limited to a maximum of one and a half hours (90 minutes). However, there is a limit of 30 minutes per session when other minors are waiting to use the laptops.
Youth needing a computer to do homework may use a desktop computer. However, they must get approval and sign in with the Circulation Librarian before accessing a desktop computer.
Parents with kids under the age of 7 may request to checkout one of the educational and entertaining Playaway tablets from the Children’s Librarian.
We now have three desktop computers for public use as well as five laptops plus a visually impaired/handicap workstation.
WiFi access is being updated, and come summer we will have faster speed internet! This is your taxpayer dollars hard at work.
