Upcoming events at APL


ARCANUM – The popular StoryTime at Arcanum Public Library (APL) will be held on Tuesdays at 10 a.m. This drop-in program for preschoolers includes stories, songs, crafts, and lots of fun. Also on Tuesdays is the afterschool program for children in grades K-6. The Explorer’s Club meets from 3:45–4:30 p.m. and provides a chance for kids to have a snack, make a craft, play games, and hang out with friends. This is also a drop-in program.

The newest program at the APL is a great way for patrons to start off each week. The Roaming Readers Walking Club meets on Monday mornings at 9 a.m. for a 30-minute walk. The sessions will continue through Nov. 11. This drop-in program is a great opportunity to meet new people, get some exercise, and have some fun. Participants will be asked to sign a waiver.

The library has purchased five “Discovering STEM” kits that introduce concepts such as levers, gears, velocity, and more. The APL is inviting patrons to come for a fun afternoon of getting to know the kits on Friday, Nov. 8 from 1–3 p.m. The kits will then be available for patrons ages 8 and up to check out and take home for building fun.
