News from the Pierson Library July 6, 2012

Dream Big at Pierson Library: summer programs in the youth area next week.

Explorer Club: Tuesday, July 10 at 1 pm: Get lost at Sea! Build a model hovercraft or ocean floor rover and take part in a scuba diving relay.

Faerie Club: Wednesday, July 11 at 1 pm: Make a flower press!  Preserve the wildflowers you collect with your own hand-made flower press.

Catch sweet dreams: Thursday, July 12 at 1 pm: We’ll have everything you’ll need—beads, feathers and floss—to weave your own dream catcher. Then participants will have only the sweetest dreams.

There is still space in all of these programs. Register any time by phoning the library at 985-5124 or by stopping at the front desk next time you visit. It’s not too late to get your summer reading logs and bookmarks. Set a goal for the number of books you will read this summer. Once the goal is achieved winners will be able to pick a prize at the end of summer. Don’t forget, the Library has added a wonderful new reading incentive this year.  The reader with the highest page count will bring home a Barnes and Noble Nook!  Check in at the library or on our website or Facebook page for more information about this prize and for the latest information about our exciting summer programs.

Come to our Over the Rainbow Party on Friday, July 13 at 1 pm

Follow the yellow brick road to the Pierson Library for our Wizard of Oz themed party.  Play games, have your fortune told, make a craft to bring home, and more.  No registration is needed for the party, just join us in Oz.

Play Scrabble this afternoon, Thursday, July 5 at 1 pm

Looking for a cool place to relax, meet new friends and challenge your vocabulary?  Join us every first and third Thursday of the month for a rousing game of Scrabble.  Scrabble boards open at 1 pm.  Come for as long as you can.  Bring a friend.  Be prepared for lots of fun.
