ARCANUM – As the holiday season begins, the Arcanum Public Library has plenty of events, programs and things to do to for all ages.
Patrons can do holiday browsing on the computers, make copies of Christmas letters and pictures and stock up on books and movies for snow days and school breaks. Patrons can come in to enjoy the holiday décor or to find a quiet place to read and relax. Kids can pick up holiday- themed coloring pages and activity sheets.
On Tuesdays, preschoolers can come to Storytime at 10 a.m. to listen to stories, sing songs, make a craft and have a lot of fun. No registration is needed for this drop-in program.
Also on Tuesdays, school age children can come for the after school program, SPARK, from 3:45-4:45 p.m. Kids can make a craft, learn something new, explore the outdoors, hang out with friends and much more. This also is a drop-in program.
The library will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 21 and 22.
At 6:30 p.m. Nov. 29 the library will host a fun and lively “Name That Tune” game. Patrons are invited to come and join teams and guess tunes based on clues and the music played on the piano. All ages are invited as the music choices span generations. There will be some Christmas music in the mix as well to help get the holiday season off to a musical start.
Patrons can participate in the gingerbread house decorating contest. The houses will be put on display through December. Patrons can come on in to get the details and pick up the base for the house.
Patrons can call the library at 937-692-8484 with any questions or check out its new and improved website at www.arcanumpubliclibrary.org. The library also is on Facebook and Twitter.
