Graphic Reads: A Graphic Novel Book Club – 3rd thru 5th Grade (YS Department)
Mondays once a month
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This we are going to keep our graphic book club rolling! Each month we will meet to discuss a different graphic novel and share our thoughts and feelings about the characters, story and overall plot all while focusing on the artwork and how it enhances the story. Since this year’s summer reading theme is “Every Hero Has a Story” all of our graphic novels will have to do with main characters that make a difference.
This month’s book can be found in the Youth Services Department and is ready to be checked out.
Registration for this program is required so that we know how many books to provide. To do so call us at 203. 488. 1441. ext. 323
Mini-Maker Table – For All Ages
Fridays & Saturdays
10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us every Friday and Saturday for a mini-maker project from our MakerLab! Every month we will feature a quick project or new piece of equipment to mess around with. The results may have you leaving with something to physically take home OR just the satisfaction that you were able to create a circuit, power on an Arduino or thread a sewing machine. The projects are easy, meant for all ages and 100% drop-in. It is just up to you to find out which floor we are featuring the project on and drop on by.
Registration for this table is not required – just come ready to tinker, play and create!
