Athens:

This week at the Spalding Memorial Library we will have programs for all ages!

Miss Jess will be taking the library out into the community three times this week. She will visit Sally Babcock’s Daycare on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 9 a.m. On Wednesday the 4th of December, Miss Jess will visit Valley Childcare at 9 a.m. and Kozy Kastle at 3:30 p.m. When Miss Jess goes to our community childcare centers, she takes a little bit of the library to children who may not otherwise make it to story time. She brings books to read aloud, a craft, and, for some, a small rotating collection of library books to be borrowed for two weeks. It is our hope that we will inspire a love of reading and lifelong learning in as many children in our community as possible.

On Tuesday, the 3rd of December, we will be having a Free Build from 3-4:30 p.m. All ages welcome.

On Tuesdays from 6-8 p.m., the Threads group meets. This is a group open to all ages wishing to explore knitting, crocheting, and other crafts. Members usually come with individual projects to work on and share with the group. Advice is often given on different techniques. Those wishing to learn a new skill are welcome to come in for help.

We will also have Social Gaming Club on Wednesday night in our conference room from 5-7 p.m. Ages 10-110 are welcome for this program. Yes, 110! We encourage all ages to join this exciting group. Bring along your favorite games! Gameplay will be based on participants’ preferences each week.

This Thursday our Writing Club will be meeting, open to teens and adults. They meet on the first Thursday and third Tuesday of every month. Come open your creative pathways with writing activities and conversation!

Every other Thursday, Spalding Memorial Library sponsors an Inter-Generational Playdate at Sayre Health Care. The library brings crafts and stories as well as books requested by the residents. This Thursday, Dec. 5 at 10:30 a.m., our playdate theme is “Christmas Trees.” We hope to see you there!

Story time on Friday, Dec. 6 will be themed around “Hats and Mittens” for both 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. Join us for stories, songs, and crafts all about hats and mittens!

We’ll see you soon at the library!
