Our library lecture series returns Thursday, August 23 @ 6:00pm with A Time to Dance: a contra dance lecture by program presenter, Richard Nevell.
Richard Nevell will discuss the role of country dancing in American history. Country dancing “gives dancers a sense of belonging, the country dance helps build what is now popularly called social capital.” Mr. Nevell will show excerpts from his 2 films, Country Corners and Full of Life A-Dancin” which are based on his book, A Time to Dance: American Country Dancing from Hornpipes to Hot Hash.

Thank you Katie @ the Dover Children’s Museum for your interactive presentation of Mind-Blowing Matter that Rocks! We learned about the various stages of matter, and everyone made a fun project to take home!
Someone has been removing the letters from the library sign in front of the building. As a result, some have gone missing, and others have been broken. We have alerted the Newfields police department to take note….that no one (other than library staff) should be touching that sign. If you notice someone removing letters from the sign, please alert the Newfields police department immediately. Thank you for your help!
This activity is for ages 6-12. Younger siblings are welcome to attend, but parents will be expected to chaperone them. 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.
