Happenings in the Children’s Room

Report on Summer Reading Program

I would like to thank all the local school districts, community members, parents, and grandparents. One of my goals this summer was to get more children signed up for the summer reading program than last year. We have surpassed last year’s number and reached higher than I thought possible for this summer. We should be very proud that this has happened for all of our communities. Every little step helps our children and our future. Now if we can get more children to come in after finishing the reading, we will have hit another mile stone. So come in and get your prizes in August.

Craft time at the library

One of our dedicated volunteers put together a poster on why the Gardiner Public Library “ROCKS” in the eyes of our children. She went around during craft time and asked the children what they liked best about coming to the library. Here are some of the answers.

“I like to make friends and play with them at the library.”

“I like the library because I can color here.”

“I like the arts and crafts, books and the movies.”

“I like the books and the games and playing at the library.”

“I like to do crafts at the library.”

“I like to read the books and take our movies.”

“I like the special books about dogs.”

“I like playing with the Legos at the library.”

This poster definitely has brightened up the children’s room and tells us why this building is so important to the communities that it services.

What’s all the hoopla about HOOPLA?

You are in for a treat with the new service that Gardiner Public Library is providing.  Go to our newly updated website and look for the HOOPLA box on the right hand side of the page under Quick Online Links.  Register with your library card, and you can then stream movies and music from the site.  How cool is that?

Stuffed Animal Sleepover!

On Tuesday, Aug. 15th, we had our first ever Stuffed Animal Sleepover at the Gardiner Public Library. It was a huge success and everyone had fun. Children brought in their stuffed animals to leave for the night. We put name tags on the animals and then the fun began!

 

Snacks were served and books were read…

 

 

Everyone had fun at craft time,

playing with the doll house,

 

sliding on the banister….

Until it was time for bed….

Children came back the next morning, Wednesday, Aug. 16th, and picked up their animals. They each took home a picture of the animal having fun in the library and the craft that the animals did.

 

This is definitely an event we will do again!
