Sensory Garden Tour & Potpourri Making

Join a speaker from the Bartlett Arboretum for a virtual garden visit, followed by DIY potpourri making.  A Sensory Garden is unique from traditional gardens, as it is designed specifically to stimulate the Five Senses: Seeing, Hearing, Smelling, Touching and Tasting. It provides visitors with an interactive journey through the senses by having plants and materials of different textures, colors, scents, sounds and heights. For example, there can be one section or station in the Garden designed to stimulate Hearing. To accomplish this, there can be a water feature or plants that generate sound when the wind blows or make noises when you rub the foliage together.  After you take a guided virtual tour, you will have a chance to create your own customized potpourri with provided materials (available for pickup at the WPL after registration).

A Zoom link will be emailed prior to the event.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Any child ages birth to five years can participate.
Traditionally children are enrolled in the program by an adult that lives in the same household, or that spends part of their day with them.

The Woodbury Public Library is encouraging grandparents to participate in the program. Reading to your grandchild, in person or via video chat, is a
rewarding way to nurture an intergenerational relationship.

Participants are given a log to track the books they read.  For every 100 books read, a sticker and book is awarded. Once 1,000 books are read, in addition to the sticker and book, the child is given a gift certificate to shop at the Book Cellar.

If you need guidance on how to have a video chat with your grandchild, Reference and Technology Librarian Ron Fairchild is available, by appointment, to guide you through the process. To schedule an appointment or for more information about 1,000 Book Before Kindergarten, please call the library at 203-263-3502.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is generously supported by The Friends of the Woodbury Public Library.

Acrylic Pour Paintings by Gerry Sacks are highlighted in the Library's Gallery Space this month.

Ms. Sacks has always been creative, choosing to explore many types of creativity during her life, and arranging color and texture in different ways.  Upon moving to Connecticut she was ready for a change, something very important to her. She came across videos showcasing acrylic pour painting and was intrigued and ready to try something new. The technique affords her immense freedom and unpredictability.

Gerry Sacks’ acrylic pour paintings will be on display during regular library hours. The library is not open on weekends in August.

Teen Book Group: SKINK

Classic Malley: her parents are about to ship her off to boarding school, so she takes off with some guy she met online... Poor Richard: he's less of a rebel than Malley, and a lot less trusting. He knows his cousin is in trouble before she does. Wild Skink: he's a ragged, one-eyed, ex-governor of Florida, and enough of a renegade to think he can track Malley down. With Richard riding shotgun, this unlikely pair scour the state, undaunted by blinding storms, crazed pigs, flying bullets, and giant gators.    

In Carl Hiaasen's outrageous, hilarious, and wildly dangerous state of Florida, there are a million places an outlaw might stash a teenage girl. A million unpleasant ways to die. And two who will risk everything to rescue a friend . . . and to, hopefully, exact a bit of swamp justice.

A Tale Of Two Tails: Summer Reading Finale

 

Join us here at the Library for this animal themed program presented by Animal Embassy.

 

Animal Embassy's rescued/adopted animal ambassadors have their own tales and many of them also have their own tails.

They have real life dwarfs, giants and dragons, a turtle that catches fish with his tongue, an all-white peacock named Taj Mahal, and many other rare and beautiful creatures.

Some of their animals use their tails as fly swatters, some use them to hold on tight, others use their tails to keep them warm at night. Some of their animals even start off life with a tail and later lose it; others can regenerate one that has been lost. 

A variety of wild animals from all over the world will be brought to the Library. 

 

Masks are recommended for this in-person event since it will be held indoors. 

There are 47 spaces available.
