Interactive Music Program on Thursday, Sept. 6 at 6 pm: To welcome the beginning of a new school year and the passing from summer into fall, Pierson Library is excited to present a gala evening of music in the Town Hall space. The program is entitled “Singing the Good Old Songs Again.” Entertainers Gary Brant and Jackie Davidson (formerly a member of the well-known music group The New Christie Minstrels) have performed their popular music program at venues all around the US. Their program combines original and classic folk songs into an energetic, entertaining, and fun show. They promise that there will be a lot of audience interaction, participation, and humor. Jackie and Gary offer personal insight and stories with many of the songs they sing. Please join us for “Singing the Good Old Songs Again.” This promises to be a very memorable musical experience for all ages.
The Pierson Library Thursday afternoon Scrabble group will reconvene on Thursday, Sept. 6 at 1 pm. As in the past, on the first and third Thursday of every month Scrabble aficionados are invited to join fellow wordsmiths for a rousing game (or two) of Scrabble. To honor the first game of the new season a yummy, surprise snack will be in store for all players. Join us.
Welcome back to our after school crowd. It’s the start of another school year and we’d like to remind everyone of Pierson Library’s Guidelines for Kids.
1) Our library is a shared space for all ages. It’s important to be mindful of those around you. Please engage in appropriate topics of conversation, and be aware of the language you’re using during your visit.
2) Respect personal space. Hitting, kicking, and other aggressive behavior are not allowed in our library.
3) Remember to show kindness. Please refrain from talking negatively about your peers, and expect the same behavior from others.
4) Make suggestions. If you’ve read something wonderful and see that we don’t own it, or have a great idea for a program, we’d like to hear about it. We value your ideas.
5) Remember you’re indoors. No need to shout to be heard. If a friend is outside hearing range, walk to where they are rather than raising your voice.
6) Absolutely no running in the library.
7) You’re responsible for your personal belongings. Backpacks, laptops, instruments, and other personal belongings should not be left unattended in the library. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
8) Leave a clean space. After school food and beverage privileges will be suspended for the school year if you do not clean up after you finish eating. If you bring snacks or drinks to enjoy it is your responsibility to see that all bottles and packaging make it into the trash/recycling.
9) Responsible behavior is expected at the library the same way it is expected in any other public space. Let’s make it a safe space for all to use and enjoy.
