February at the Creswell Library - Family Newsletter
What’s New in February?
Here's what you can expect-
We are making Kindness Cards on the 2nd and Boats that Float on the 16th!
Introducing, Toddler Toy Time!!! Toddler Toy Time is the third Tuesday of every month after Baby Story Time. Race car tracks, play kitchens, puzzles, and our railroad set will all be out for use. Young kids can explore these new toys and learn how to share and play with each other.
Did you know that this Saturday, February 4th, is Take Your Child to the Library Day? We will have fun bookmarks to color, pencils to take home, and raffles for different age groups!
Thursdays for Kids
We have four events again this month for kids!
2/02 at 3:30pm - Kindness Cards - We have cardstock, stickers, gems, glitter glue, washi tape, markers, and more to make your very own kindness cards! If you want, these can also double as Valentine's Day cards too..
2/09 at 3:30pm – Lego Club - Join us for Lego building awesomeness! Each child that completes a project will get to put it on display in the library until the next Lego Club!
2/16 at 3:30pm– Candy Delivery: Boats the Float- Can you get the Valentine's Day Candy to the other side? Come with your thinking caps on and get ready for some teamwork. You'll be working together to make boats that keep the candy dry as it sails across the water.
2/23 at 3:30pm – Art with Holly - Holly is a local artist who generously hosts art lessons for kids at our library. Each month we will have a different activity and Holly will lead us through it one step at a time.
PreK Storytime - Thursdays at 10:00am in the Creswell Library
Join us for fun books, songs, and rhymes!! This storytime is intended for children in preschool but all kids and their families are welcome to join. We shoot for about 30 minutes of fun but sometimes we go a little long and sometimes just a tad short.
Babytime – Tuesdays at 10:00am in the Creswell Library
Join us on Tuesdays for songs, fingerplays, lap bounces, scarves, egg shakers, stories, and bubbles! This storytime is 20 minutes long so we can wrap up before the littlest get too squirmy.
Toddler Toy Time – The third Tuesday of the month at 10:45 am in the Creswell Library
Feel free to come to Baby Storytime and then stay for this fun playtime, or just drop in! We will have out some toys during this 45-minute playtime. Suggested ages 1-5.
February Reads for March Book Club
Book Club for Kids will meet to chat about "Stowaway" on 2/1 at 4pm via Zoom. Our next book is "Frazzled: Everyday Disasters and Impending Doom". We will chat about this hilarious story on 3/1 at 4pm. Read more about the book from the publisher.
Meet Abbie Wu. Abbie is in crisis—and not just because she’s starting middle school or because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because everyone seems to have a Thing except her. Abbie Wu is always in crisis.
From author and professional doodler Booki Vivat, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is and where she belongs. Akin to Smile by Raina Telgemeier, Frazzled is heavily illustrated, embarrassingly honest, and sure to appeal to anyone in the middle of figuring out how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up.
Middle School Book Club has started back up again. Please email me at Lindsey@creswell-library.org if you are interested in joining!
