We’d like to thank everyone that came out to our Family Fairy Garden Fun event at Claude Kehler Community Park yesterday. As our first event partnering with the Northumberland County Council for the Arts & Humanities, the community’s enthusiasm for the program was incredibly encouraging for both organizations. The library would like to thank the Northumberland County Council for the Arts & Humanities for partnering with us along with providing materials and dedicated volunteers. Additionally, we extend our sincerest thanks to Whitenight’s Farm and Greenhouse of Danville, PA for donating all the plants that were used for the fairy gardens. We’re hoping to make this an annual event so keep an eye out next summer!
We hope everyone who came out this morning for our Summer Reading 2021 kickoff enjoyed the program and will be back next week at 10 AM on Wednesday, July 14th for Week 2! Remember to fill out your reading logs in order to have the chance to pick from the prize box next week. Special thanks to Eddy Ray for bringing his magic show to the library and to Christine Shemory for her delicious and wonderfully decorated cupcakes!

Remember to sign up your children for Summer Reading 2021 either over the phone or at the library. Our kickoff date for this year is Wednesday, July 7th and that’ll be here in just a few short weeks! Every Wednesday at 10 AM from July 7th through August 11th the library will be hosting a slew of different presenters free of charge for all those attending. Additionally, children can work towards a variety of different prizes by logging the number of minutes they read each week!
While our designated age range is specified as grades K-6, both younger and older siblings are more than welcome to sign up and attend the programs as well as complete reading logs to work towards prizes.
Our theme this summer is “Tails and Tales” and thus some weeks will feature animal puppet friends or even live animals! Be sure to sign up, mark your calendars, and get ready for Summer Reading 2021!
The library’s children’s section on the second floor is officially back up and running! Whether your child is a fan of puzzles, building blocks, or trains, there’s certainly something for everyone to enjoy while they pick out their books. Furniture has thankfully been put back in place so there’s plenty of room to sit and color too if you’d like. We look forward to seeing you all throughout the summer and beyond!
