Join us at our last preschool craft program in the Fukaya Rooms on Tuesday, August 9th at 1:30 pm!

We’ve had a lot of fun so far in our previous three craft days. We’ve made handprint sunflowers, paper plate turtles and hot air balloons mosaics.

All of the crafts are designed for preschoolers to make on their own, with a little assistance from an adult. The crafts help preschoolers practice cutting with scissors, using glue sticks, coloring with crayons, following directions and best of all, have fun with crafts!

Our last class for the summer is Tuesday, August 9th at 1:30 pm. Please stop by the Children’s Desk at 1:15 pm to pick up your free tickets for the program.

Preschool Crafts will continue in the fall, and will move back to its original day (fourth Wednesday of the month) at 1 pm.

Centerville held a 2-day Kids Library Camp on June 23rd and 25th. The registration was full in three days but the inquiries never stopped, even when the camp was already in session. Thirty-six kids in grades 4 to 7 attended and all left with happy comments like “It was awesome!”, This was a really fun camp. I want to do it next year!!!”, “This was so rad!” Wow!

Take a look of this video to see what kids were learning and the fun we all had. I tried to cover all the sessions in the order they were presented but had to leave out the exciting Contest. The pictures of the contest were deleted by mistake. 😥
