Annual Book, Plant, & Bake Sale 2016
The annual Book, Plant, and Bake Sale will take place on Saturday, April 30th, 2016, at the Roger Marten Community Center. The sale will run from 8:00 a.m. until about 1:30 p.m. Please consider donating some time to help set-up and take down the Book Sale. Set-up will begin on Friday, April 29th, at 4:30 p.m. The sale runs solely on the strength of volunteers. Even 15 minutes of your time is a huge help. Also, if you would care to donate baked goods to the bake sale, please contact the library by phone, e-mail, or in person for where and when to drop off items. Please spread the word!
Story Time: Story time for children ages 2 to 5 is held every Wednesday during all months except June, July , and August. Come visit Helen and listen to some great stories and do a fun activity! The weekly activity is generally most suited for 3 and 4 year-old children, but all ages are welcome. If you plan on being a regular attendee at Story Time, please let a staff member know so that we can make sure that we always have enough materials prepared for each week’s activity.
Cops for Kids: Join us at the Roger Marten Community Center on the 3rd Friday of every month for the “Cops for Kids” program! Come help your children engage with the City of Mondovi Police Department and the Mondovi Public Library as we provide stories and activities that will help your kids develop crucial learning and social skills.
Calm by Color Adult Coloring: Come to the Mondovi Public Library on the last Thursday of every month to relax and indulge your inner child! Select a sheet to color, sit back with a cup of tea and possibly a snack, and feel your stress slip away as you focus on your artwork. We will provide everything you need: coloring sheets, colored pencils, markers, crayons, tea, and music. Occasionally, some attendees have brought snacks to share!
Mega Blok Mondays: Join us every Monday during the school year starting at 10:00 a.m. for a morning of creative play using Mega Bloks building blocks. They are just like Lego Duplos. Children can build things and have a chance to interact with other children in a playtime environment. Studies have shown that literacy skills are greatly enhanced in this type of learning environment. We will also have stories and songs playing on the CD player, or you could sit and work a look-and-find book, put together a puzzle, or play a game with your little one!
