Welcome to Kindergarten!

Join us in this program created especially for incoming Kindergarteners! Students entering Kindergarten in the Fall of 2022 are welcome to register!
We'll be reading a few stories about Kindergarten, followed by a ride on the school bus! The bus will loop around Seekonk, making brief stops at both Aitken and Martin Elementary schools.

You can now register for Scan Days at Seekonk Library to record images and stories for the Remembering Seekonk Landmarks project. Appointments are available for specific time slots on the following dates:
Fri., July 15
Tue., July 19
Mon., July 25
Wed., August 24
Thu., August 25
The goal of this project is to capture memories of the places "that used to be there." To participate you must pre-register and bring a maximum of five original photos to be scanned at the library. The digital images will be emailed to you or an email address of your choice for sharing. Select images may be made available on a digital archive website.
Clear, non-blurry photos up to a maximum size of 8.5“ x 11“ are welcome. Photos will be scanned as is without editing.
Photos must be your own to comply with copyright (e.g. no newspaper clippings or professional photographs).
To be considered for archiving, the photos should showcase a roadside landmark that is no longer in business; we are especially seeking landmarks from 1940 - 1969 from Routes 6, 44, 152, and Fall River Avenue. Personal photos from family businesses in these locations are ideal. Additional information will be requested for identification.
Are you taking advantage of the library’s free access to Creativebug yet? Your Seekonk library card gives you free online access to hundreds of fun, professional arts and craft videos in Creativebug. This month is the perfect time to jump in with a take home kit to try the Ice Dyed Top, Bubble Printing, Orizomegami or another tutorial of your choice (some materials provided). Register to pick up a kit and follow the tutorials in Creativebug at home. Kits are limited; register with a Seekonk library card in the online Events Calendar at www.seekonkpl.org/events for information about pickup.
Then join us at the Creativebug Summer Showcase on Wednesday, August 24 at 6 PM to show off your creations from the kit or other tutorials, whether fab or fail, share these and other leftover craft materials (mini-craft supplies swap), and create a group project.
