Memory Screening
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Memory screening image

Though often overlooked, periodically checking the health of our brains is just as important as checking things like cholesterol and blood pressure. This becomes especially important as we grow older. Find out more and register for your free memory screening at the Seekonk Library on Friday, November 15 from 2 PM – 4 PM.

Even if you don’t have any concerns right now, taking a brief memory screening could be a meaningful checkup to see how your memory is now and can be used for later comparisons down the road. Keep in mind that any results are not a diagnosis of any particular illness and do not replace actually talking to your doctor, especially if you are having concerns about your memory.

In this program, participants will receive an overview of the memory evaluation process (30 minutes) followed by Q & A and optional sign-ups for 10-minute individual screening. The screenings will begin immediately after the presentation. This program is offered FREE to the public by the Rhode Island Mood and Memory Research Institute.

Beybladers unite! Join your friends at the library for an after-school Beyblade Club.

Mystic Aquarium's Eat or Be Eaten
4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

Students may know about sharks, a predator that sits at the top of the ocean food chain. But how many know about plankton, the often microscopic plants and animals that make up the base of the food chain? Both groups are critical for life in the ocean and would not exist if it weren’t for the other.

In this class, students will explore the ocean’s food web’s links and discover who eats whom, how they do it, and why. After the 20-25 minute presentation, there will be time to touch and learn about some ocean animals including clownfish, eels, anemones, flounder and maybe even a small shark.

This program is for children in grades 2- 5. Siblings welcome.

Boston Bruins Pajama Drive 2020


Boston Bruins 13th Annual Pajama Drive
February 1 - March 15, 2020

 

Seekonk Library has teamed up with the Boston Bruins to be a drop-off location for the Boston Bruins’ 12th Annual Pajama Drive that benefits DCF Kids and Cradles to Crayons. The collection goal for this location is 125 pairs of pajamas for children and teens in need to be collected between February 1 - March 15 . The pj's will be distributed to children in Massachusetts who "don’t know the comforting feeling of putting on PJs before settling down to sleep." Donations in all sizes are needed from infant through teen. Donations may be left in the collection box in the Children's Room at Seekonk Library.

The Boston Bruins thanks everyone in advance for donating pajamas to their Annual PJ Drive!

The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) works with the Boston Bruins to coordinate library participation in the drive.  Libraries from around the state use the Massachusetts Library System’s delivery service, typically used to send books and other library materials, to send their PJs to area collection locations which increases libraries’ ability to participate in the drive.
