Our library lecture series continues Wednesday, September 12 @ 7:00pm with New England Lighthouses and the People Who Kept Them. Presenter, Jeremy D’Entremont, tells the history of New England’s historic and picturesque lighthouses, primarily focusing on the colorful and dramatic stories of lighthouse keepers and their families.
This activity is for ages 6-12. Younger siblings are welcome to attend, but parents will be expected to chaperone them. Although a librarian is on the premises, this is an unsupervised event. Therefore, for children who require adult supervision, we respectfully ask parents to remain in the library for the duration of the event. Goldfish crackers and water will be provided.
Ten girls in grades 6 through 9 recently completed an 8-hour 4H certified Babysitting Course at the library taught by Pam. Topics covered included child development, nutrition, first aid, child and infant CPR, when and how to call for help, how best to entertain children and most importantly, how to be responsible and keep the children safe at all times.
They are ready and enthusiastic to start babysitting!
A list of contact information for them will be available at the library desk.
The Friends of the Library have new tote bags for sale!
