Our July/August schedule is as follows: July 18th – Tamarack Wildlife Center (@Rolling Fields Pond); July 25th – Erie Zoo; August 1st – Cooperative games & family picnic with Grand prize and book giveaways.
Our annual book sale will begin on Monday, July 24th and continue through until Saturday, July 29th during regular library hours. We have a large selection of children’s books, fiction, and non-fiction from which to choose.
Coming in August we will be adding another exciting program for children entering kindergarten in the fall. Our first “Kindergarten Boot Camp” will be held August 7-11th from 10:00-12:00 at the library. Pre-registration is required and space is limited to 15 “campers” so you will want to mark your calendars. The week will be filled with activities that will help your child learn what to expect when he/she attends a typical school day. At the end of boot camp, each child will receive a certificate.
Everyone is invited to attend the National Night Out, August 1st, in Lord Mason Park from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Stone Memorial Library will be having a booth set up and would love for you to stop by and see them. This is a fun family event for all ages to help make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.
In July there will be a program called “ Summer in the Son.” Every Wednesday and Thursday 10 am - 1 pm, at Lord Mason Park for grades 1-5. There is no charge and lunch will be provided. Come Join! Crafts, activities, games and lots of Summer fun!
Also, as part of our summer reading program, the teens and tweens will be meeting Thursday afternoons from 2:00 - 3:30 at the library.
