Family Programs

Book Blazers After School Program started up for the fall in October and ends in April.  See the Youth Programs page for more information.

It’s Story Time – with a Twist for our Thursday, April 4, Family Night Program at 6:00 pm.

Our April Family Night Movie is on Friday, April 12 at 6:30 pm, when we will be showing Bumblebee.  This is the synopsis of the movie: On the run in the year of 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie, on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken.  This movie runs for 1 hour and 54 minutes and is rated PG-13.  And as always, movie snacks will be available, usually for $1 or less, with all profits benefiting Library programs.

One of our favorite Family Night Programs will be offered on Thursday, May 2 starting at 6:00 pm.  We’ll be building Faerie Houses for all the wee folk who might visit your house and garden.

On May 11th, there will be a special Mother’s Day Event as a Fundraiser for the Theodore Burr Covered Bridge Resource Center: a Quilt Square Painting Workshop on Barnwood from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.  You will have your choice of 4 designs, and two sizes (either a 12″x12″, cost $30, or 18″x18″ with a cost of $40)  All materials will be provided, and these squares will be suitable for mounting on smaller barns and storage sheds, a mini version of a Barn Quilt!  Registration forms are available at the Circulation Desk of the Library.

Another Theodore Burr Covered Bridge Resource Center Fundraiser will be the Draping of the Pews II and Tea Social on Sunday, May 19 at 2:00 pm at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Oxford.  Quilters are encouraged to bring quilts for display and judging, with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place Prizes being awarded.  There will also be a Raffle Basket worth $150 – tickets for the raffle are 6 tickets for $5.00.  Tickets for the Draping and Social are $10, and  Reservation Forms for this are also available at the Circulation Desk of the Library.
