Weekly Highlights for May 15, 2017

The end of the school year is fast approaching.  That means that Roberts Good Neighbor Days is just a few weeks away.  I’m always amazed and all of the people that come to our little community to enjoy the small town atmosphere, see friendly faces, eat great food, take in live music and enjoy catching up with old friends.  The Library will be doing it’s Dessert Fundraiser on Thursday, June 1st, 5:30 pm at the Community Dinner.  We are looking for dessert donations to be brought to the library by that Thursday at 12 noon. We are also looking for families to join us in walking in the parade on Sunday, June 4th.  Please call the library to sign up and get the details on when and where to meet. 

Summer Reading Program registration starts on Friday, June 2nd.  Our program is for toddler through adults with prizes for all ages.  We’ve been working for months on the programs to provide great opportunities for fun throughout the entire summer! Calendars will be ready in just a week for you to see what adventures await you at the library.

 Author Night: Tuesday, June, 6th, 6:30 pm.  We are excited to have your join us for author, Eric Dregni who wrote You’re Sending Me to Summer Camp Where?  From discouraging summer love to soothing homesick campers to-oh no! Bats!-taking everyone for their rabies shots to the difficulty of saying goodbye, Eric Dregni’s wise, funny book reassures us that there’s still a place in the woods where, unplugged from devices and screens, children of all ages can connect to the natural world and with each other.

 Senior Coffee and Cookies/Ice Cream: Every Friday at 10AM, except Friday April 14th.  Stop by for some conversation, games, or just a free cup of coffee, hot chocolate, or tea.

 Strong Senior Chair Exercise: This program is Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-2PM. Come on in and join the movement group! This program will follow a DVD designed to help develop strength and enhance ability to function in daily live, improving stability, balance, and mobility. Feel free to bring small hand weights for a tougher workout.

 The Library will be closed on May 27th and May 29th for Memorial Day! 

 The parking lot fundraiser is ongoing and the Library Board is currently working toward raising $83,253 to pay off the extended lot and prepare the way for pavement. Your gift would help us provide safe parking for those who attend our growing programs.
