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.

This program is free and open to all; please register in the library’s Events Calendar online at www.seekonkpl.org.

Wingmasters Presents- New England Birds of Prey

Birds of prey are also known as raptors, and also boast the best eyesight and the sharpest hearing in the animal kingdom. Raptors include hawks, falcons and owls, and this presentation, which incorporates 5-6 live birds of prey native to New England, gives an overview of these different categories.  Because many birds of prey are declining in number, this presentation also features one or more of the endangered raptors that WINGMASTERS cares for, and explains why these species face an uncertain future.

This program is suitable for ages 5+. Limited to the first 100 participants.

Stop Motion Animation

Image result for stop motion animation

Stop motion animation (also called stop frame animation) is animation that is captured one frame at time, with physical objects that are moved between frames. When you play back the sequence of images rapidly, it creates the illusion of movement. The basic process of animation involves taking a photograph of your objects or characters, moving them slightly, and taking another photograph. When you play back the images consecutively, the objects or characters appear to move on their own. This workshop will cover the basics of stop motion animation, and children will create their own mini-movie using various objects. This is a STEAM program as it incorporates creativity, a bit of art, and storytelling with technology. 

Grades 2-5

Registration Required.

Beyblade Club

Beybladers unite! Join your friends at the library for an after-school Beyblade Club. "Beyblade is a competitive game where spinning tops are launched into a stadium and clash until one is either left in the stadium or spins the longest. This game involves strategy, physics, good sportsmanship, and fun! Kids are encouraged to bring their own blayblades and stadiums. The library will have a limited number of beyblades to share."


The focus of the club will be on meeting other enthusiasts with tournament play. One goal of the club is to promote good sportsmanship by "playing with a number of opponents and learning to be kind whether you win or lose."

Whether you're already a Beyblade fan or just want to see what Beyblade is all about, you're invited to drop in and play!

*please bring your own Beyblades if possible
