Holiday Card Making

Thursday, December 4th, 4-6pm

Friday, December 19th, 10am-Noon

 

Tis the season for spreading holiday cheer and being with friends & family! Unfortunately, sometimes people in our community don't get that chance or opportunity. So Mr. Jason thinks the library can help and bring some smiles to those people in our community with some holiday greeting cards. We need your help!
 

Come to the library and make a few holiday cards using our supplies. Mr. Jason will gather them up, and then deliver them to Fair Acres Geriatric Center and others (depending on how many cards we make). Teach your kids the importance of volunteering and giving back in the community, all while being crafty!

The Library was selected for an exciting new program called the Block Party Project!  The Block Party is a workshop format to engage parents in block play with their children. Children are born learners, but they need experiences to be stimulating, fun, and interactive.  Parents can guide children’s early learning experiences and use blocks as the tools to support their development.  Playing with blocks can provide experiences where children learn math and science, new words and pre-reading skills, social skills, creativity, physical skills, and problem-solving skills.

Block play is fun for both children and adults. For more information about the Block Party program, call the library at 610-623-0239 ext 304 or visit: www.lplcysd.blogspot.com

Large groups, please call to schedule a date for your Block Party!

 The Hundred-Foot Journey (122 min., © Touchstone Pictures, 2014), starring Helen Mirren, is a charming film that abounds with flavors  that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, with marjoram and madras, it is a  portrayal of two worlds colliding and one man’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be (based on the  studio synopsis).

 Rated PG.

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

Beverages and dessert will be available.

Registration is required. Please sign up here or call the library at 610-789-4440.
