A Story Walk!
Let's welcome winter by enjoying Eileen Spinelli's picturebook, Now It Is Winter,
illustrated by Mary Newell Depalma.
This playful story, displayed page by page around the library garden, shows
a young mouse asking so many questions as his mother reminds him of the
wonders of winter.
Perhaps an antidote to the winter doldrums and those who long for a change of season?
A Story Walk is a great activity encouraging families to explore literacy outdoors.
Our Story Walk is made possible by The Friends of the Blanding Library, Rehoboth, MA.
Love Our Earth!
Our young library patrons can create their own full view of our planet as seen from space - something that was not achieved until the 20th century. Using materials supplied, the end result will be a colorful "stained glass" window-style ornament that shows off its bright colors when the light shines through!
Thank you to those "crafters" at NASA's Space Place (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) for these free kits! Supplies are limited - call to reserve yours for curbside pick-up.
Magical Mondays with magician, Ed Popielarczyk.
Each Monday through March 16, Ed will post a new magic trick to learn! His videos are prerecorded and uploaded online to the Blanding Public Library Youth Service Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/Blanding-Public-Library-Youth-Services-112545290475311
They are free and there is no pre-registration required. Ed Popielarczyk from MA is a professional magician, balloon twister, and flea circus ring master. He is offering this family entertainment demonstrating these FUN magic tricks you can learn from home.
Newton is in a fluffy mood and is getting carried away!
What better way to celebrate than by reading a book about a cat so
fluffy, he floats!
Join puppets Newton and Blue Sky as they present A.N.Kang's
"The Very Fluffy Kitty, Papillon".
If you wait until the very end of this video, you may just spot a real
live fluffy kitty on camera!
