Evening Storytime

Wed, Nov 13, 2019
6:00pm - 7:00pm

Don't forget to check out our evening storytime! You are invited to join us for a light story and craft to spark your imagination before bed. On November 6th, we will read Thank You, Umo, a story of sharing and community. We will follow up this heartwarming story with a craft. Miss Mary will share Edgar Gets Ready for Bed by Jennifer Adams and do an activity related to the book. Miss Mary introduces us to the mischievous, disobedient, and contrary toddler Edgar the Raven. As the evening winds to a close, Edgar's mom knows just what to do to get her son into bed-a bedtime story. A perfect book to get us ready to go to bed. On November 20th, we will read a book about turkeys and do a related craft. This will be the last Evening Storytime before Thanksgiving and no better way to get us in the mood for the holiday. Don’t miss out on the fun.

 

Art Club

Thu, Nov 14, 2019
4:00pm - 5:00pm

The Art Club is for children in the 1st through 6th grade. Members study the works of famous artists and different forms of art and create works of art based on those artists.  This club is made possible through the PA Partners in the Arts grant which was awarded to the library through the Elk County Council on the Arts. As part of this grant, Judy Mader will present the work of Sarah Robey. Sarah Robey is known for her technique of layering and experimenting with shapes, repetition, new mediums and mixed media.  Art Club members will create acrylic paintings on canvas using repeated shapes and patterns of the student artist's choice.
