March at the Creswell Library - Family Newsletter

What’s New in March?

Like last year, there will be a library scavenger hunt during Spring Break (March 25th - 30th).  

Due to low attendance, Pajama-rama storytime is canceled for the time being. 

Thursdays for Kids

We have four events this month for kids.  

3/7 at 3:30pm – DIY Dragon Eggs – Make your very own dragon eggs using foam, push pins, and glue. Since we are using tacks, this event is not for younger children (5+ please) and will be held in the Friendship Room.

3/21 at 3:30pm – Full STEAM Ahead! - Flapping Butterflies -  Steam stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Science. This month, we are using straws and cardstock to make flapping butterflies.

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. Afterward, we will all do a fun craft. 

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.

March Reads for April Book Club

Middle Grade Book Club 

Middle Grade Book Club (ages 10-13) meets the first Tuesday of every month at 4pm and goes for about 45 minutes. It always includes a simple activity relating to the story. 

We will meet at the library on 3/5 at 4pm to chat about "Shelby Holmes". Our next book is "Great Cicada Moon" by Marilyn Holton Eulberg. We will talk about this historic novel-in-verse mystery on 4/2 at 4:00pm. Here is a quick blurb about this book from the publisher.

Book cover: "Full Cicada Moon" by Marilyn Hilton with a girl's face, snowy backdrop, and bare tree branches.

It's 1969, and the Apollo 11 mission is getting ready to go to the moon. But for half-black, half-Japanese Mimi, moving to a predominantly white Vermont town is enough to make her feel alien. Suddenly, Mimi's appearance is all anyone notices. She struggles to fit in with her classmates, even as she fights for her right to stand out by entering science competitions and joining Shop Class instead of Home Ec. And even though teachers and neighbors balk at her mixed-race family and her refusals to conform, Mimi’s dreams of becoming an astronaut never fade—no matter how many times she’s told no.
This historical middle-grade novel is told in poems from Mimi's perspective over the course of one year in her new town, and shows readers that positive change can start with just one person speaking up.
