Pillowcase Project

We have this fantastic program provided by the American Red Cross and sponsored by Disney. Kids will learn how to become empowered to take action during an emergency, such as a fire or tornado warning, and also learn how to be prepared. Kids will get to decorate their own pillowcase to fill with emergency supplies when they get home. This class provides great resources and coping skills for kids to be prepared for storms and fires, and is equally fantastic for kids who want to share skills with family and friends on how to be safe.

Pillowcase Project will take place on Saturday, March 10th from 10:30 am- 11:30 am. This workshop is for grades 3-5 and will take place in the meeting room.

Registration begins February 24th.


What’s New in Youth Services- February 2018

The groundhog saw his shadow and while that means 6 more weeks of winter, we have plenty for you to do in Youth Services and the time will fly.

The Winter Olympic Games begin Friday, February 9th. Our display features books about Winter sports and former Olympians.

Our Make and Take table features groundhog, Valentine’s Day, and winter themed crafts and coloring pages.

We have a felt board in the Makerspace area  where children can create their own Olympic scene.

Also in the Makerspace area, we have a cork board where children can create and solve their own addition problems.

Our Makerspace Activity Challenge is to create a device to help you land safely. This challenge is based on the book Hot Air: the (mostly) true story of the first hot-air balloon ride by Marjorie Priceman

In the Makerspace area, we have Slot-A-Shape Builders. Create animals, buildings, or anything your heart desires. We invite you to take a picture with your creation and post in to our Facebook page.
