This Week for Kids (Jul. 12-16)

Last week we had a Water Balloon toss, a whale, two story times, the Kickoff Party and a Wii 4 All--the pictures are up on Flickr, this site if you click on the little thumbnail images to the right, or on our Facebook page

Monday at 4pm: Monday movies begin with The Water Horse! "When a lonely young boy named Angus discovers a large, mysterious egg along the shores of Loch Ness, no one is prepared for what lies within. He soon discovers that the strange, mischievous hatchling inside is none other than The Water Horse, the loch's most mysterious and fabled creature! But with the Water Horse growing ten times its size every day, Angus finds it increasingly difficult to keep his new friend a secret."

Tuesday at 10: Families First Parent Recharge. Kick back, get involved in relaxing activities, and recharge your parenting battery. Child care is free for ages 12 and under--advance signup required--and refreshments included. Call 422-8208 x2
1-5: Drop In Craft--Rain Sticks! Make and decorate your own rainstick. All the cool sounds without the disappointing weather.

Wednesday at 3:30: Musician Steve Blunt will be singing and playing for us! A local children’s musician, Steve describes himself as “a part-time music teacher, part-time singer/storyteller whose job is more full-time fun than most grown-ups are allowed to have”. He started creating songs for children back in the mid-90’s, while working as a middle-school English teacher and raising a young daughter. Now he has four CD’s of songs for kids & families: Hang On Henry, Kangaroos and Didgeridoos (with Joseph Carringer), Outta School, and Let’s Have a Reading Party (with author Marty Kelley). Currently, he performs at schools and libraries in New Hampshire and throughout New England. Along with his own songs, he uses traditional American and multicultural material. “Songs & Stories”, which he will perform at the library, is a family program for “all ages... featuring mostly humorous original compositions and traditional American & multicultural selections.” To get in the mood, check out “Hang On Henry” or “Outta School” next time you’re at the library.
6:00: Pajama Story Time. Every Wednesday at 6pm throughout the summer reading program, we'll have Pajama Story Times! Wear your jammies, bring a stuffed friend and come relax. We'll start with a craft, then wind down with stories, songs and rhymes. At the last story time, Aug. 11, bring a stuffed friend you can leave overnight for a Stuffed Animal Sleepover at the library! The next morning (or at the final party), you can pick up your friend with a small book of pictures and a short story about how they spent the night.

Thursday at 11: Jenn's Stories. This week, Jenn will be doing a puppet show of "Where the Wild Things Are"!
4-5: Sink or Float? What sinks and what floats? We'll have a very small pool outside and we'll see who can guess what will sink and what will float. Then we'll see if we can sink the floating things and make the sunken things float!

Friday 4-5: Wii 4 All! Come test your skills at Mariokart, Wii Play, Summer Sports, Bowling and more! Snacks included.
