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.

New books for children and teens given to the library by a very generous donation by Scholastic are being put on our shelves. Teens are invited to visit the new area of the library dedicated to books for them!
New this fall for adults is a free, Monday Night Craft Program from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., making projects to take home. On Sept. 10, librarian Ruth Friedman will lead the group in creating personalized photo greeting cards. Please bring five photos with you.
