Spring & Summer 2019 Newsletter

Stony Creek Free Library         Spring/Summer Newsletter 2019

As the snow melts and the sap is no longer running and as the trees are budding the library is gearing up for a busy and exciting spring and summer.

We had a blast with our winter Paint and Sips- some of which continue through April…if you haven’t attended there is still room for you for the April programs- of course with the weather so nice don’t be surprised if the classes are canceled due to “nice weather” (see our website or facebook page) and Casey has been busy with Art projects for the Children’s & Teen’s art Table.

Casey received a grant from Warren County Soil and Water to rebuild our planters and plant a traditional native 19 century garden. Ask Casey for info as we will plant as soon as the ground thaws!

Our collection of Books and DVD’s continues to grow and we carry some of the most current titles!

We hope to have our grand opening of the Artirondacks Gallery/ Studio/Shop this spring.  Stay tuned for more info!

Sat. May 11th 12-4 “Prop Building Workshop” with Erik Johnsen.  $20/Adults- $10/Teens- ask Casey about this great workshop!  Sign up now!

ARBOR Day Event!   We will again be planting a “Library Sugar Maple” at the Rec. field this year.  Warren County Soil and Water will be on hand with a beautiful tree that we will plant next to last year’s tree.  Then back to the library for a short lecture on the history of Arbor Day and refreshments!  Join us on Sat. May 18th at 11:00  – meet at the Rec. Field!

We will be having the Children’s/Teen’s Summer Reading Club again this summer.  The Theme is “A Universe of Stories”.  We will have giveaways and an awards party the end of August.  Sign up will begin sometime in early June. Space is limited depending on funding!

We have gotten a Grant from LARAC and will be having 3 wonderful workshops through the summer months.  We are only charging for materials for all the workshops (material fees go directly to the instructor).

We are planning a “If it is raining at 5:00 on Thursdays Movie Showing”  So if it is lousy outside on Thursday, come to the library and we’ll put on a movie and pop popcorn.  Movie titles TBA- call the library to let us know you’ll be coming!
