Parent & Child Workshop
9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

This special "drop in" workshop will be offered from 9:30am to 11:00am in place of our regular Tuesday story times on November 20. It is free to attend, and no registration is required. As a designated member of the Family Places Libraries network, we embrace the fact that literacy begins at birth, and libraries can help build healthy communities by nourishing healthy families. Our play-based workshops offer “exploration stations” featuring developmental toys you can enjoy with your child(ren) to help them build skills in dexterity, creativity, and sharing. It's also a wonderful opportunity to meet other parents/caregivers in our community!

Drop-In Sketching Group
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Noodling. Doodling. Dabbling. If a program description includes these words, you can be sure it will be relaxed and fun. Leave inhibitions behind and create free-form drawings, journal entries, small cards, or tiny books using simple items like a drawing pencil or roller ball pen and a notepad or journal. While there is no “instructor” per se (again, this is a casual drop-in activity), we’ll be joined by Michael David Brown, a retired illustrator and Scarborough resident. This event is free to attend. Basic supplies will be available or bring your own.

Minecraft Miner Day
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

With the help of our teen development team, the library has its own dedicated Minecraft server!  Moving forward, we'll have some surprises waiting for you and your friends to discover in our uniquely Maine Minecraft worlds. Watch for Minecraft Miner Days and other special events.

Don't have a Minecraft account?  No problem.  We'll provide you with one while at the library during one of our upcoming Miner Days. On these days we'll be serving up Minecraft at the library, and providing registration for remote access from home if you have your own Minecraft account.  Come have some fun, and maybe learn something too!  Note: Parents must remain in the Library if child is under 10 yrs. old.
