Ho! Ho! Ho! Allow the wonder of the season to envelope you as Lindsay Bonilla from “World of Difference” reaches into her storytelling bag and pulls out the perfect story gifts for the audience on Saturday, December 7, from 2:00-2:45 p.m. in Rodman Auditorium. The Elves and the Shoemaker (Germany), and The Mitten (Ukraine), are two of the interactive family-oriented stories she will present. With high entertainment value and high energy, Lindsay will delight the whole family.
What's the latest craze? Rubber band bracelets! The children's department at Rodman Main Branch is sponsoring an all-day session where children can create their own colorful bracelets. Visit the library from 10:00am-4:00pm. If you're a beginner, try a single loop bracelet. If you're more adventuresome, try a fishtail pattern. For ages 10 and up (or younger if accompanied by an adult). We have a rainbow loom you can try out as well as books to check out or reserve. If you have your own supplies or looms, you're welcome to bring those along too!
