ATHENS — Spalding Memorial Library recently announced news and updates for the week of June 20.

There are “Oceans of Possibilities” at Spalding Memorial Library this summer. Register for our summer reading program by visiting and clicking on “Reading Programs” or stop in at the library to pick up a paper reading log. Log the time your child spends reading, completing activities, and attending library programs to earn free books and prizes. Children earn one point for each minute they spend reading. Each time they reach 100 points, they earn a free book. When they reach 500 points, they can choose a prize from the treasure chest and print a completion certificate, too. The program runs from June 1 to Aug. 31 and is open to children and teens from birth to age 18. For more information, call the library at 570-888-7117 and follow Spalding Memorial Library on Facebook.

Join us on Tuesday, June 21 at 1 p.m. for a special visit from Electric City Aquarium and Reptile Den. Meet five animals, and learn about them from an expert keeper from the aquarium in Scranton.

On Tuesdays from 6 to 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 hope to see you there.

Drop in on Wednesday, June 22 from 1 to 3 p.m. for Free Build. We will build with LEGOs, Magnatiles, and Lincoln Logs!

Whether you are 10 or 110 join us on Wednesday. June 25, for Gaming Club! Bring a deck of cards or a board game that you enjoy and share it with the group! We look forward to seeing you from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday.

On Thursday, June 23, at 10 a.m., Ms. Jess will livestream stories and songs on the Spalding Memorial Library Facebook Page. This week we will read stories about boats.

Grab and Go Storytime Bags are available at the library while supplies last. Each bag contains all of the storytime crafts for the month. Call the library at 570-888-7117 to reserve a bag for your child, or stop in to pick one up today.
