Summer Reading Program at your Friendly Neighborhood Library

 
 

 
Bees are buzzing, birds are singing, frogs are calling, ducklings are dancing, and our summer reading program is poised to bloom. EHFPL will start the season with our annual Teddy Bear Picnic, Monday June 29th at noon . In keeping with this year's superhero theme, each child will have a choice of designing a cape and/or superhero emblem for his or her take-home teddy. Please come in to the library, or call us, for details and to register for this superhero event.

Superheroes come in all sizes and ages, and EHFPL has something for everyone! Each week from July 1st to August 14th, we will have special events and happenings, including book clubs, crafts, movies, live music and a comic book workshop.

Don't miss out on the fun! Visit the library and this blog often for information about upcoming events.

Art and Invention at Your Friendly Neighborhood Library

While you're visiting the library, please take some time to see the truly awesome collages created by talented students from Nathan Hale-Ray High. And while you're at it, check out the Invention Convention display created by imaginative students from Nathan Hale-Ray Middle School.

The collages are fashioned from torn and cut newspaper print. By this means, the students have created truly stunning works of art.  

The NHRMS Invention Convention  is in its 7th year. "It is a fun and learning program designed to develop, encourage and enhance students' critical thinking skills through invention." The participants are from grades 4 through 8. All of the inventions are imaginative and clever.

Because the Invention display boards are much larger than the collages, they are displayed in the upper section of the library, and the collages are downstairs in the children's section.

Both displays are really great! So take some time to check them out before checking out. You'll be glad you did.
