Springboro Library happenings
SPRINGBORO - It’s “Fantastic Fall 2017” here at Springboro Library! We are planning a pre-holiday season packed full of fun!
On Tuesday, October 24, we will hold our “Spooky Puppet” workshop at 6 pm for kids of all ages! On Thursday, October 26, at 4:00 p.m., enjoy “Electric Junction” presented by Northwestern REC. This demonstration utilizes a portable tabletop unit to educate children on how to be safe around electricity. Costumes are welcome since it will be the same day as trick-or-treat in Springboro.
It’s fun for the whole family from 4 to 7 p.m. every day from October 24th to October 31st. There will be craft activities, fun food creations, games, challenges and snacks for everyone!
For the kids, pre-school story time continues at 10 am every Saturday, followed by “create time” at noon with activities and crafts for older kids. Also, every Thursday from 3:30 - 4:30 pm, we will have after school activities with snacks and learning fun!
The library has more to offer than ever! We currently have music CDs, playaways, books, books on CD, magazines, movies and more! There is something for everyone. Patrons are welcome to come in to relax and read or to use the library’s public internet computers or wi-fi.
