The Playground: August Recap and September Programs

Welcome to The Playground

We are excited to kick off our new activities and programs in The Playground.  The Playground is our fun and interactive space at the library where you can join us virtually for stories, special guests, activities, crafts and more!

August “STEM and Stories Saturdays” Recap

It was a day of learning to fly with the dragonflies! Did you know that if you ate as much food as a dragonfly in one day, it would be like you eating 64 servings of macaroni and cheese! Oh boy, that is a lot of food! We pulled out our art supplies, as we shaped and added twist and turns to the pipe cleaners and created our very own dragonfly. Our time ended as we relaxed and listened to the story called, Insects Are My Life by Megan McDonald.  Missed the August programs?  Don’t worry you can view past programs on The Playground page.
