Children’s Programming

Mommy & Me

Newborn through two years of age

 Monday mornings from 10:30-11:30 am.
If you have questions please call the library at 765-536-2335.

Socialization is just one of the benefits of our infant class, but we also focus on early literacy skills. From the time they are infants, children learn language and other important skills that will help them learn to read. We try to develop these skills by incorporating reading, singing, signing and play into our class.

No programs will be held during May to allow us to prepare for a special summer reading program. For summer reading this year we will have six weeks of regular programming and 2 SPECIAL EVENTS. One event before the programs begin and one after the last regular programs. Follow us on Facebook under Ralph E. Hazelbaker or call the library for information. There will also be flyers coming home from school with school age children, about the summer activities!

Adult Programming

“Young Adult Program”

7th to 12th grade

This class is offered on the first Monday of each month from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. The program will be different each month. You will do some sort of volunteering at each program, so you will be able to list “volunteering at your local library”, as a community service on your work and college applications.
Some things we will do: collect food for the Hope Center, make crafts for someone or for use at the library, and this fall we will make wreaths and center pieces. Come have fun with your friends and earn community volunteer hours!

No program will be held in January, April or September 2019

Adult Programs

“Page Turners Book Discussion”

Next discussion will be Monday June 10th and we will be discussing Kristin Hannah’s book “The Great Alone”

Lenora Allbright is 13 when her father convinces her mother, Cora, to forgo their inauspicious existence in Seattle and move to Kaneq, AK. It’s 1974, and the former Vietnam POW sees a better future away from the noise and nightmares that plague him. Having been left a homestead by a buddy who died in the war, Ernt is secure in his beliefs, but never was a family less prepared for the reality of Alaska, the long, cold winters and isolation. Locals want to help out, especially classmate Matthew Walker, who likes everything about Leni. Yet the harsh conditions bring out the worst in Ernt, whose paranoia takes over their lives and exacerbates what Leni sees as the toxic relationship between her parents. The Allbrights are as green as greenhorns can be, and even first love must endure unimaginable hardship and tragedy as the wilderness tries to claim more victims.

Pick up a copy of the book today and join us on June 10th!

We meet the 2nd Monday of the month from 7:00–? PM. We discuss a book each month and receive a new book for the following month’s discussion + have a small snack.
