From the Goodall Library:

That’s right – June’s STEM kits are SLIME! Kits will be available from June 7th – June 12th. A special Zoom workshop that walks you through how to make your slime and the science behind it will be hosted on Thursday June 10th at 6pm. You won’t want to miss this so mark your calendars now!

Registration for summer reading is on now! Any time between now and June 21st, pick up a welcome kit at the library. We have materials for the Youth AND Adult programs available. Follow the instructions you’re given to sign up for Beanstack and get ready to read – the challenges will open up for you to start officially logging when the program starts on June 21st! Oh, and did we mention that each youth kit comes with a bookmark and a mystery prize?

From the Springvale Library:

The Genealogy Room is available without prior restrictions.  Patrons are welcome to stay as long as they wish as long as everyone continues to be masked. Opening the Community Room will be re-evaluated on July 1st. The Children’s Room is welcoming one family at a time. The Reading Room is open and newspapers and magazines are available.

Springvale Library is having a GAME NIGHT OUT ….  Which is actually a Zoom ‘GAME NIGHT IN’, a one big party game in your own home!  This program ‘Game Night Out’ offers immersive group game-night experiences, guided by live Hosts.  Each experience contains a curated variety of all-original games that has something to offer every personality in your group. The experience consists of a series of challenges, that we, as a group and in teams, will compete in. The games are original group games, not ones you’d typically play at home, nor are they board games, etc. You’ll be earning points throughout each round to determine a winning team by the end of all rounds. Sounds fun, right?  Register here.
