Good times at the ACL this week…
Knitting Club (Saturday, February 18th 10:30 am)
Adults and kids alike can learn to knit at the ACL! Have you or your child always wanted to learn how to knit? A group of knitters assembles each week at the library to work on personal projects of varying levels. Twice a month, our resident knitting expert, Judy Castaldi, is on hand to teach folks how to start from scratch or help them over the hump with a challenging maneuver. (Judy is there on select Saturdays…she’ll be there on the 18th, but not the 25th.)
StoryTime (Tuesdays at 10:15)
Bring your toddlers and preschoolers by for stories, songs, puppets, and simple crafts. Celebrate the cycle of the year (snowflakes! Valentines!) with other caregivers and children.
Lego Club (Tuesdays at 2:00 pm)
Do you have a Lego fiend on your hands? Come by with your kids to play with the most enormous collection of public Legos in Newton. Parents and caregivers–grab a book and sit and read while the kids build…no Lego mess at your house. Put an end to the winter afternoon “blahs”… (This particular demographic is often interested in our Star Wars reading collection, which has had an infusion of several new books over the past months.)
Magic the Gathering (Thursdays at 5:00 pm, Saturdays at 11:00 am)
For the older kids: this is more of a drop-off gang. Sort of like a cross between baseball cards and Dungeons and Dragons–complete mania for those who love it! Has it been a while since your kids picked up their cards? Again, these drop-ins are a great way to ensure good reading turnover for your kids–grab a new book or two every time you come and go.
