Teen Time at the Library

We had a wonderful group of students visit Thursday, Sept. 18th.  This was the first day of our new after school program geared toward the middle and high school students of MSAD # 11. The bus will drop them off every Thursday, we’ll feed them a snack, give them time for homework and socializing. Sometimes there will be a small program like an author visit or an inside scavenger hunt.

 

Students read books, used computers and gotused to what we have to offer. Everyone seemed to have a great time and enjoyed themselves.

 

 

We are looking forward to having the students every Thursday after school.

 

Saturday at the library!

The Gardiner Public Library is a great place to spend your winter!  The library staff wants you to spend some time enjoying the great programs we have booked.  Last Saturday the library was bustling in all the rooms.  We had Story Hour up in our Children’s Room.  We offer Saturday Story Hour the first Saturday of every month and Babies Love Babies Play Time every Friday from 10-11AM.  We had a Henna Happy Hour in our teen section and we also scheduled a Fireside Chat with State Representative, Gay Grant.  Look for more of these chats in the future.
Are you looking for ways to meet other caregivers?  Come join us every Tuesday morning for Tuesday Story Hour (10:30-11:00AM) followed by a craft time with Missy.  Have you just read a great book and wish to talk about it?  Join our Book Discussion Group that meets 6-7PM on January 22nd as they discuss The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom.  Are you researching your family and need some help?  Join our Genealogy Meet Ups in our Community Archives Room on 1/22 and 1/24 from 11AM until 1PM.  We even have laptops that you can use!
