Library Happenings

We’ve had a great week here at WSPL and we’re not done yet! On Tuesday, we had a special performance from musician, Chad Elliott. We all sang along and had such a great time! And this morning we had our first ever Space Walk Storytime at the park. We had over 50 kids in attendance and we couldn’t have asked for better weather! Tomorrow (6/21) we have our first DIY Craft Friday. We’ll have a craft/activity kits available to pick up through out the day. Your family can do the self guided activity together at the library or take it home and do it there. There are so many more great events to come during the Summer Reading Program, follow this blog or Like our Facebook page for updates!

Space Walk Storytime

We’ve got a great new program to introduce you to this Summer! The librarians at WSPL have decided to take storytime outdoors and get the kids moving! This Thursday (6/20) we will meet at the North Park shelter house at 10:30 am and divide into groups. Each group will start out with one of the librarians at a different spot in the park to hear an outer space themed story and then rotate. At the end, we will meet back up at the shelter house and do a quick activity. Our first activity will be making our own edible constellations! Please keep in mind that this program is weather permitting. Watch our Facebook page for updates. We hope to see you Thursday morning!

Star Lab Visit

We had a great event to kick off our summer reading program this past Friday! The Grout Museum brought their mobile planetarium to Wellman! While the library was far too small to fit the huge blow up tent, we had plenty of room at the Parkside Activity Center! We took groups of 30 kids and parents into the star lab at a time for an overhead presentation about the wonders of the night sky. We had over 100 people attend! It was tricky to get any pictures of the actual program as it was inside a dark area. While groups were waiting for their turn we had some fun activities for them and Ms. Carol read a story. It was a great event overall!

We can’t wait for our next program this afternoon! Chad Elliott will be here at 3:00 PM with his Wilderman’s Treetop Tales musical act. And on Thursday we will have our first ever Space Walk Storytime at North Park! We will have 3 librarians stationed through out the park for a rotating storytime followed by a quick activity.
