October at the Creswell Library – Family Newsletter

What’s New in October?

I'm sorry I am a few days late with this update. I thought I sent it out last Friday but I only sent it to myself. My fault!

Storytimes are officially back in the library. We hope to head back to the park again when the weather warms back up. Our storytimes are on Tuesday and Thursday starting at 10:00am. You can read more about them below.

Join us for pumpkin painting on 10/20 at 3:30pm. We have lots of little pumpkins that need to be painted. Come in and paint one to take home or leave it with us to display at the library.


Thursdays for Kids

We have three events again this month for kids.

10/13 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!

10/20 at 3:30pm – Pumpkin Painting - Crafty Kids - Our Crafty Kids event this month is painting pumpkins. Paint one to take home or leave to display in the library! If we have enough pumpkins and time, you can do both!

PreK StorytimeNew time and location - Thursdays at 10:00am in the Creswell Library

Join us for fun books, songs, and rhymes in the park! 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.


October Reads for November Book Club

Book Club for Kids will meet to chat about Catstronauts: Mission Moon on 10/5 at 4pm via Zoom. Our next book is I Survived the California Wildfires, 2018. We will chat about Catstronauts on 11/2 at 4pm. Read more about the book from the publisher.

May contain: person and human

"The people of Northern California were used to living with the threat of wildfires. But nothing could have prepared them for the devastating 2018 fire season, the deadliest in 100 years and the most destructive in history. In the 20th I Survived book, readers join eleven-year-old Josh as he leaves his New Jersey home for the rural northern California town where his cousins live. Still reeling from the life-changing challenges that propelled him and his mother across the country, Josh struggles to adapt to a more rustic, down-to-earth lifestyle that couldn't be more different from the one he is used to. Josh and his cousin bond over tacos and reptiles and jokes, but on a trip into the nearby forest, they suddenly find themselves in the path of a fast-moving firestorm, a super-heated monster that will soon lay waste to millions of acres of wilderness and -- possibly -- their town. Josh needs to confront the family issues burning him up inside, but first he'll have to survive the flames blazing all around him."


Middle School Book Club will be taking a short break. Look for us to start reading again in the next few months.
