---- — ATKINSON - The conversations on energy continue, and the third conversation will happen here on Mon., December 16, starting at 7:00 p.m. Each month is a drop-in invitation for energy topic discussions, and we encourage you to stop in to participate or just listen. Newcomers are always welcome!

Details for the third ‘Holiday Drop ‘n Shop’ on December 21 from 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m., are as follows: On the third day of ‘Drop ‘n Shop’ the elves have whispered to me... “Let’s partake in Frames and Games!” Come in and paint a picture-frame ornament, play some holiday games, and create a puzzle piece picture-frame to take home. Bring in a 3X5 picture of yourself and it will make a great gift! It’s popcorn and movie time while our creations dry.

All ‘Drop ‘n Shop’ participants must be at least 6 years of age to be left in the building without an adult. Ages 6-9 must have an adult fill out a waiver on that morning to be left here in our care. Children under 6 must be supervised by the attending caretaker. Children ages 10 and up are allowed to stay without an adult or waiver according to library policy. Thank you for your cooperation. Residents only, please.

If you or your child would like to see a sample of the Saturday crafts, please drop by the library and see the projects for each week displayed in advance. Stay tuned here each week as we keep you informed as to each Saturday event’s details. All crafts are currently on display in the children’s room.

Recently we had a fabulous bubble event for which we only had limited seats, and we had some disappointed children on the day of the event because they had not been registered before our event was full. Unfortunately, we regret do have to limit events due to space, staffing, or supplies. Sign up early and then please do let us know if you cannot make it so somebody on the waiting list can take your place. We like all our events to be full. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
