Virtual Parents Book Club
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The Parents Book Club meets once a month to discuss a book that probably, most of us have read. Our conversations are more social than anything and are very casual. They are intended to be a place for moms who love to read to get together and enjoy adult company. We usually, but not always, get around to discussing the book! We always have fun and look forward to the next meeting.

In January, participants are encouraged to find a poem or poet that they love by either reading a collection of poetry (kids or adult) or by finding some online. Contact Interim Director, Amy Rhilinger, for suggestions.

Creating Peace and Sanity at Home with the KonMari Method™
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

 Are you feeling overwhelmed by the clutter in your life? As we spend more time at home than ever before, it is important that your home can be a sanctuary that provides you with peace and that energizes you to tackle life's biggest challenges. The KonMari Method™ can help you. 

The KonMari Method™ was created by Japanese organizing guru, Marie Kondo. Millions of people have been drawn to this philosophy not only due to its effectiveness, but also because it places great importance on being mindful, introspective and forward-looking. In this 90-minute workshop, you will learn how to apply the KonMari Method™ in your home to get organized, not just for a day or a week, but for good.
 
Maile Shoul is a Certified KonMari Consultant and the owner of Cloud Eleven Organizing. She has taught several families to transform their homes (and their lives) by keeping what serves them and letting go of all the rest. Come join this interactive, judgement-free workshop to learn how this method can change your life.

Registration required. Zoom link will be sent to participants by email.

Do the activity and see what a pinch of salt can do!

Tweens & Teens in grades 5-12 are welcome to join the APL's Teen Volunteers and Mrs. Witherell for a Book Tasting!! 

Log on to this virtual program to hear the teens and Mrs. Witherell talk about great books! We are calling it a tasting since participants will get a "taste" of all of the titles AND because each participant will be provided with snacks to each during the presentation!

Here is how it will work....

First, register online for the program.

Starting the week before the program each participate who has registered will receive an email asking them to schedule a curbside pickup time for their program supply bag, which will include a list of all the titles that will be discussed during the program so kids can check off any books that sound interesting to them AND snacks they can munch on during the program. We will try to work around food allergies, however parents should check the food provided to ensure it is safe for their child to eat if they have allergies. 

Then, the night of, log on to the session and listen to teens talk books...we would love your input on your favorite titles too, eat snacks and have fun! Make sure to have your checklist ready!!

Registration is required and spots are limited! 

 

******Parents are responsible for checking ahead of time to make sure their children are not allergic to food provided.

15-Minute Family STEAM Activity

Lifting Ice With String

This experiment is geared toward families with kids ages 3 & up.  Did you ever wonder why they use salt to de-ice roads? Did you know that snow more readily sticks to pavement treated with salt? Why would this be the case? In this activity you will use the same principles to pick up ice cubes with a string. Is it possible to do this—without getting your hands cold? Do the activity and see what a pinch of salt can do! 

Registration for materials is required for each experiment you would like to try, limited quantities are available and will be reserved for those who have registered. Once your registration has been confirmed, library staff will work with participants to set up a time to pick up their craft kit. STEAM kits can be picked up at the library Monday-Saturday during the week the activity is featured. 

To register for a  materials kit, please email attleborokids@sailsinc.org or call 508-222-7820 during the week of February 22 The last day to register and schedule a pick up time for these materials will be Friday February 26.
