Whatever model of schooling you’ve chosen for this academic year, your student will be spending at least some time learning from home. While it doesn’t sound exactly like “fun,” there are some things you can do together to prepare your space for this to happen.
Kids Program Updates
In case you missed it: the library is now open for limited browsing! You’re welcome to come into the library for short visits to find and check out materials. This also means that if you’ve earned beads for your Summer Reading necklace over the summer, you can come right up to the Youth Services desk to pick up your prepackaged order! (If you are not yet comfortable coming into the library, we can still schedule a time for the pickup window.)
Come out for a socially distant, IN-PERSON event! Find HodgePodge (he’s a friendly monster!) – he’ll be hiding in plain sight somewhere in Easton (hint: not too far from the library!). Once you spot him, you can park (somewhere legal and safe, please!) to say hello and get a photo with him. Find HodgePodge at the Governor Ames Estate (35 Main Street in North Easton)!
Join us for the FINALE of our summer Family Entertainment series on Zoom tonight, Monday, August 17, at 6:00 PM!
The Toe Jam Puppet Band returns to help us end the summer on a high note! Their variety show features interactive songs, stories and puppets, and lots of silly voices. You’re sure to be dancing along…or at least tapping your toe.
We are moving right along with our summer reading program, and a lot of you have been busy, busy readers! However, not many people have collected any beads yet, so we wanted to share a brief instruction on using the Prize Store.
Under your child’s account in ReadSquared, go to the Prize Store tab (in the app, the icon looks like a shopping cart). You’ll see the number of points you have available to you, and can choose any beads you have enough points for. Repeat this for each child.
Tip: choose higher value beads first!
Watch Rosalita’s Puppets presentation of a Sea Story on Zoom tonight, Monday, August 3, at 6:00 PM!

Every Tuesday, Youth Services hosts an interactive kids’ program on Zoom. We’re featuring STEM activities, crafts, and a few movement programs too!

Fossils, magic, and science are blended into a fun 35- to 40-minute program.
