Join us for a 6-week journey through the book Pax, by Sara Pennypacker! 

This Book Club is for kids ages 8 - 10 years. There is no need to read this book on your own, as Miss Devon will be reading aloud throughout the series. We will listen, write, draw, and act out scenes from this thrilling adventure story!

More about this book:

PAX

Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day, the unimaginable happens: Peter's dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild. 

At his grandfather's house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he isn't where he should be—with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.

Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own.

Join us in celebrating the career of Debbie Reynolds by watching The Unsinkable Molly Brown at the Upper Darby/Sellers Library!

Reynolds won a 1964 Best Actress Oscar nomination as the backwoods heroine who survives the Titanic and the snobbery of Denver society. Screen-debuting Harve Presnell reprises his stage role of Johnny, who has a heartful-and-a-half of love for Molly. Johnny wasn't alone. Astronauts Gus Grissom and John Young so admired the movie they named their Gemini 3 spacecraft Molly Brown. (from the DVD package)

This free progam will be held in the library's 2nd floor meeting room. There is no elevator.

Light refreshments will be available.

Registration is required. Only adults may register for this program.

Coloring for Adults is here at Newtown Public Library! Drop in, pick up some colored pencils and color for your own well-being on coloring pages, all supplied by the library or bring your own. But why coloring?

Coloring actually has been shown to have many benefits for adults. According to WebJunction, many libraries believe that coloring supports health literacy, pointing to research that indicates that it de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, and can be especially beneficial to people with brain damage or dementia. Coloring also invites creativity and stretching imagination muscles from childhood that may have gone dormant while fulfilling the responsibilities of adulthood.

Coloring creates social connection, both as a way for the library to connect with the community, and for community members to connect with each other, overcoming isolation and loneliness. It’s also a chance for library staff to help patrons informally with books they might enjoy or information they may be seeking, or simply to introduce people to the other programs and services the library and the community at large offers.

And finally, coloring is just fun! Please join us and see how coloring to happiness helps you.

More about this book:

PAX

Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day, the unimaginable happens: Peter's dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild. 

At his grandfather's house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he isn't where he should be—with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.

Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own.

Coloring for Adults is here at Newtown Public Library! Drop in, pick up some colored pencils and color for your own well-being on coloring pages, all supplied by the library or bring your own. But why coloring?

Coloring actually has been shown to have many benefits for adults. According to WebJunction, many libraries believe that coloring supports health literacy, pointing to research that indicates that it de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, and can be especially beneficial to people with brain damage or dementia. Coloring also invites creativity and stretching imagination muscles from childhood that may have gone dormant while fulfilling the responsibilities of adulthood.

Coloring creates social connection, both as a way for the library to connect with the community, and for community members to connect with each other, overcoming isolation and loneliness. It’s also a chance for library staff to help patrons informally with books they might enjoy or information they may be seeking, or simply to introduce people to the other programs and services the library and the community at large offers.

And finally, coloring is just fun! Please join us and see how coloring to happiness helps you.

ENCORE PRESENTATION! Since this story time at 10:30am is so popular, Mr. Jason will be doing a second encore story time immediately after the first one. This way, the crowd won't be so big. So feel free to come to the 10:30am or the 11:30am story time for your toddlers!

In this Toddler story time, kids act out the books as they are being read, making them feel part of the story!  Stories, songs, fingerplays, rhymes, and toys help toddlers learn and love to read!

Tuesdays at 11:30am. Registration is NOT required.

(Children learn best through role modeling. Caregivers are asked to be great role models and be attentive and engaged in the story time. Side conversations can take place during free play. Thanks!)

More about this book:

PAX

Pax and Peter have been inseparable ever since Peter rescued him as a kit. But one day, the unimaginable happens: Peter's dad enlists in the military and makes him return the fox to the wild. 

At his grandfather's house, three hundred miles away from home, Peter knows he isn't where he should be—with Pax. He strikes out on his own despite the encroaching war, spurred by love, loyalty, and grief, to be reunited with his fox.

Meanwhile Pax, steadfastly waiting for his boy, embarks on adventures and discoveries of his own.
