Wells library has successful summer reading club

T he Wells Village Library will “Soar into Fall” after a very busy summer. Sixteen children signed up for the summer reading club and each received a new book. Over 55 children attended programs, listened to tales about dreams, night animals and skies and made wonderful projects such as dream gardens and catchers and owl lanterns. Six lucky winners won prizes from the weekly guessing game. The summer ended with a creative dance program, Hullabaloo, by Alexandra Langstaff, which was brought in by a grant from the Hills and Hollows Fund.

The Grafton Nature Museum will visit the library for the first time on Sept. 6, at 10 a.m. for a program on “Owls,” also due to a Hills and Hollows Grant. The community is invited and all home schoolers are welcome! Story time will continue on Thursday mornings for ages 3 to 5: Sept. 13 and 20, Oct. 4, 11 and 18, Nov. 1, 8 and 15 and Dec. 6 and 13. This fun-filled program for “Little Listeners” has stories, music and a craft project.
