STEAM Cloth Gift Bags
Join Ms. Deb on Facebook for a virtual STEAM activity. Activities are geared toward K-5 learners and require minimal supplies that you'll likely have right on-hand at home. For this program, let's think ahead to upcoming gift giving and make our own reusable gift bags. (Now's the time to keep your eyes open for any after-holiday sales on fabric!) We'll have a limited number of project kits available at BML, the week leading up to the program.

Harry Potter Virtual Book Night

Harry Potter Virtual Book Night 

Baxter Memorial Library invites you to celebrate Harry Potter Book Night with us!  We’ve gone virtual this year but still offer the same great activities of our past years’ events.  Our favourite English librarian, Kathy Stevens, will read the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on Facebook Feb 4th at 6:00pm.  Test your wizarding world knowledge with our trivia contest that will be located on our website.  A magical prize will be awarded to the witch or wizard with the most correct answers.

Visit the library anytime on or before Feb 4th to pick up your Harry Potter craft kit consisting of a wand to decorate, a necklace to make, and a chocolate snitch to enjoy (if you can catch it).
