Youth Programs

Join us at Preschool Story Time each Thursday morning from 10 to 11 am in the Community and Youth Services Room.  Each week we’ll read stories, play games, sing songs and work on age appropriate crafts.  The Themes for October are: October 30 – Spiders and Pumpkins.  The Themes for November are: November 6 – Animals in Fall; November 13 – Turkeys; and November 20 – Table Runners.

Our Annual Haunted House will be bigger and better this year, as we celebrate our 10th Anniversary of presenting the Haunted House.  Spooks and Goblins and hauntings – oh, my!  It’s on Saturday, November 1, the day after Halloween. From 10 am to 1 pm in our 2nd floor Program Room, we’ll have a fun party with crafts, games, snacks – and a less scary haunted house for the younger ones.  Then from 6 pm to 9 pm beware!  Starting in the Community and Youth Services Room accessible entrance outside, we’ll have a really spooky Haunted House that goes through the entire Library!  Everyone leaves with a treat bag.

Story Laurie returns to OML for our Family Program Night on Thursday, November 13 at 6:30 pm.  Laurie McIntosh (AKA Story Laurie) is a vibrant, engaging performer and entertainer, encouraging all ages to join her in songs and stories.  She just might light the spark in you to write your own tale!
