Crafting on the Porch: God’s Eyes!

Come craft the traditional “God’s Eye” or “Ojo de Dios” out of yarn and popsicle sticks. This craft has a long history in Native Mexican, and later, Mexican American communities and is a fun, simple, and colorful summer craft. Masks are required, so bring yours and your adventurous spirit! Fun for all ages from six to sixty (and more)!

S.T.E.M. with Stickers! On the Porch: Life Cycle of Frogs

Limited to 11 children, please call the library at 988-6661 to reserve a spot. Masks are currently required (if you do not have one, we can provide you with a basic, single-layer one). Learn about the life cycle of frogs by placing fun stickers on a cute, illustrated background, and take home an educational activity page to keep the learning going!

This is the second in a series of S.T.E.M. with Stickers events we’ll do on the porch this summer. While you don’t have to attend more than one, “the more, the merrier!”

Movie Night: If You Like to Surprise Your Family…

Saturday night (July 24th) we’re hosting two movies, themed activities and snacks. If you’re planning on coming but haven’t gotten your free tickets (please get them in advance, they’re cute AND help us judge how many people to expect), and haven’t told your family what’s showing this Saturday night, you can use the two mood boards below to give them hints.

Here are additional hints to give: Both movies have the word “princess” in them. The first movie is animated, rated G, and, compared to where the library is, MUCH further south, while still in the USA.

The second movie is rated PG, and based on a bestselling book.

If you want to guess and then see if you’re right, you can go to our movie listings post for the movies’ names. If you’re familiar with both movies, maybe you can look at the Mood Boards again to see if the hints are ones you recognize.

August 21st Food, Fun, and a Double-Feature of Super Creatures!

We’re doing double-features throughout summer on Saturday nights and August 21st will be our last one! And we’re saving the best for last!

We’ll wrap up the Summer Reading Program by handing out certificates and prizes.

We’ll play games…

We’ll do some dragon- and dinosaur-related activities…

We’ll eat some great food (hot dogs, chips, and ice cream) and…

We’ll watch two cool dragon movies:

RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON

and

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON

(based on the bestselling book series).

And YOU are invited, as a library patron, to get your free tickets to free food, free fun, and free movies! Come celebrate summer at your little but lively library! Contact Shannon for tickets!
