Library Offers Summer Programs for Families

New Castle-Henry County Public Library welcomes families to come to the library and enjoy a variety of free programs. Unless indicated, programs will be held in the Children’s Activity Room and do not require registration.

Monday Movies at 2 p.m. begin June 5, with What’s New Scooby Doo? (88 minutes) as the featured movie. The movie for June 12 is Shaggy Dog (101 minutes), and June 19’s movie is George of the Jungle (92 minutes).

Wednesday afternoons at 2 p.m. are reserved for “special programs” in the Children’s Library. On June 7, learn more about jesters and make a hat at the “Be A Jester” program. Make a batch of play-dough and take some home during “Scientific Cooking” on June 14. Create a puzzle in a bottle on June 21. Registration is requested for these special programs. Call 765-529-0362, ext. 366 to register. Participants can also sign up at the library.

Come to the library’s auditorium at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 8, for a Family Comedy Open Mic Night. Share your best jokes and funny life observations at this side-splitting event for all ages.

Every Friday, the Children’s Library will offer Story Time at 10 a.m. Children can enjoy stories and activities during this weekly activity.

Create a craft to take home during Super Saturday Craft Times. Every Saturday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., children can drop by and make a craft. The craft for June 10 is an ice cream soda magnet, and the craft for June 17 is a “squeakin’ squawkin’ chicken.”

The library will host Family Movie Afternoons two Saturdays a month at 2 p.m. in the library auditorium. On June 10, the movie is Cheaper by the Dozen 2; and on June 24, the movie is Bambi 2.

Children ages 7 through 10 are invited to join the Birthday Club. On the month of their birthday, they will be invited to a party for all children who share a birthday month. The party for this month is June 17 at 10 a.m. To sign up for the birthday club, visit the Children’s Library.

The activities offered in the summer are part of the library’s “Laugh it up @ your library” summer reading program. Participants can sign up at the library or on the bookmobile. Those who attend activities will receive bonus entries for weekly and grand prizes. For more information, visit
