April Happenings at the Library... Part 2

• Most Thursday mornings from ten until noon, local historians and members of the Rumney Historical Society meet to work on our programs, displays and memorabilia. If you have an hour or two perhaps you will join us.
• The Merrill Theater's Family Movie Night will be showing Princess Bride on Friday, April 8th at 7:00pm and Charlie Brown on Saturday, April 16th at 1. Popcorn will be provided; please bring your own beverage. These will both be fun family times and a good excuse to relax after a busy week.
• Teens and tweens will Get Crafty on Saturday, April 23rd at 10. Come hang out and craft together. You may even enjoy learning a new hobby!
• Our Christmas Club will meet on Friday, April 22nd at 2. Our challenge this month is to collect a few memories and photos so we are prepared when it is time to write THE Christmas letter! Carla will bring treats and Sara will have a small craft for us to complete. Little steps will result in big strides! You are welcome to join us.

April Happenings at the Byron G Merrill Library...

Our April Calendar is full of events for all ages at the Byron G. Merrill Library. The Week of April 10 – 16 is celebrated as National Library Week and we invite you to stop in and say hello. We hope that you will take a look at our upcoming events and select an activity or two or three that might appeal to you. We are always looking for new ideas so be sure to share your thoughts with us.
• Calling all school age readers.......This month the ‘Big Kids Story Time’ is becoming the Book Worm Club and will offer a variety of reading challenges and, of course, a lot of fun. It will be a time to talk and think about the books we read and enjoy some neat games and crafts. The group will meet on most Wednesday afternoons at 3 but we will help you keep up with the challenges at any other time. Be sure to check FB for schedule updates.
• Little Kids Story Time is scheduled for April 6th (repeated April 9th and April 14th at 10) and April 20th at 10 am ... again...watch for FB announcements. Ms. Carla will be presenting and will offer stories, crafts, games, and lots of fun. We will work on colors, letters, and rhymes.
• Our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program continues... Olive, Dominic, Hanna, Caleb and Clara are reading (listening!) up a storm. We have an April handout with 30 suggestions to help parents and grandparents interact with little ones.
• The Knitters will gather on Thursday, April 14th at two... It is such fun to see what everyone is working on and just have a chance to visit with others with a common interest. Won’t you join us??
