“Jurassic Juniors” – 1:30pm, Ages 1-3 — Dinosaur fans will love this fun storytime hybrid aimed at toddlers who know their dinos and still love to act silly. We’ll sing songs, read books and much more. No registration is required! (Don’t worry–for those who have reached out asking for a new time for this event, we’re planning fall programs right now.)

“Pet Bingo” – 1:30-2:30, All ages — We LOVE bingo and we’re bringing it back again this week with a fun pet theme. Kids need to be able to read, and parents should plan on staying in the library with their kids although we ask that you sit and enjoy the free wifi and comfy chairs instead of being in the room with us. You’re probably going to hate all the noise anyway…

“Queer Sphere Crafting Circle” – 2-3:30pm, Ages 12-16 – If you are looking for your people and a safe, inclusive space to just create, our new Queer Sphere is perfect for you and friends who might be allies! Stop in with your own craft, or we’ll have one here for you as well–and snacks! It’s a great place to relax, kick back and meet new people!

Thursday, August 10

“Trivia Tournament” for kids! – 10-11am, Ages 10-12–Do you have a tween who knows lots of trivia? Get them to join us this morning for a fun trivia event with lots of categories!
