---- — ATKINSON - It’s time to rhyme! Got little ones? Welcome to Mother Goose on the Loose, a fun-filled thirty minute interactive session that uses rhymes, songs, puppets, musical instruments and more to stimulate the learning process of babies and toddlers. Our fall session starts on Mon., September 12, at 10:30 a.m. We meet every week with an occasional Monday off here or there. Most of the caregivers feel welcome to stay after the session to allow for playtime and socializing for all ages and so it’s also a good place to meet others with little ones. Please register online or give us a call and talk to Miss Kathy if you want to know more about this class.
It’s time to discuss a good book! Join us for the August morning book group when we discuss ‘Dancing after Hours’ by Haverhill, MA author, Andre Dubus. ‘He restores faith in the survival of the short story’ (Los Angeles Times), and with this collection, demonstrates more powerfully than ever before both his mastery of the form and his understanding of our imperfect lives. Whether you read one story or all fourteen, come sit with us and enjoy the book even more! This group meets monthly, the 4th Wednesday at 10:15 a.m. We welcome you!
It’s time to plan ahead! Got a few extra hours on your hands to watch movies, read, or listen to tunes? We will be closed Labor Day weekend (Sat., August 31 through Mon., September 2.) Two day loan items checked out on Thursday will not be due back until Tues., September 3. Take advantage of the extension on two-day loans and have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
It’s time for fall cleaning. Got books? We’ll take them off your hands in preparation for the ‘Fall Book and Bake Sale’ that is around the corner on Sat., September 28, 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
