This past Friday, we enjoyed the beautiful day by getting together outside to create fairy gardens. Kids had a variety of decorating items to choose from including miniature fairies, play mushrooms, glitter, bells, and ribbons. They used these supplies to create their own decorative gardens for their fairy friends. We then poured in some soil and planted some seeds to grow out of our gardens. Check out their hard work in the pictures featured below! If you are interested in doing this program, but couldn't make it, don't worry! We will be offering this program again in early Fall.
The Cat in the Hat, If I Ran the Zoo, Green Eggs and Ham, and Horton Hears a Who.
Thank you Dr. Seuss for all you have done, for making reading a pleasure and learning so fun.
On March 1, Ostrander Branch celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Crafts were created, cupcakes were consumed and games were played. We had a great time. Join us April 5 at 6:30 PM for our Box It! Family Night. If you can imagine it, build it with boxes.
UPDATE: Wednesday, March 9 10:14 a.m.
The Powell Branch Library now has power and all regularly scheduled activities for the day will go on at their previously scheduled times. Storytimes will resume as normal.
Thank you for your patience.
This past weekend, tweens gathered for a special yoga workshop led by Miss Kate from Upward Dogs Yoga in Powell. Our group of tweens learned some new yoga terminology and got to try out a variety of poses together with the instructor. They even got the chance to work on some partnering movement. If you are interested in trying out yoga at your local library, check our upcoming calendars for more yoga workshops like this!
During a Delaware County District Library Outreach storytime children learned about our services in the community and helped paint pinecones to craft into flowers. These flowers were distributed to our patrons on the bookmobile at local assisted and independent living communities. We snapped pictures of the patrons receiving the flowers and brought them back to the next storytime to show the children.
During a recent Delaware County District Library Outreach storytime children learned about our services in the community and helped paint pinecones to craft into flowers.
These flowers were distributed to our patrons on the Bookmobile route at local assisted and independent living communities. We snapped pictures of the patrons receiving the flowers and brought them back to the next storytime to show the children. They were excited to see their painted pinecone flowers that one preschooler shouted “Cool!”

Last Friday at the Powell Branch Library, "Joy" led us in a special Inside Out thematic storytime. We talked about all of our emotions and read some fun stories featuring the Emotions from Inside Out and, of course, Bing Bong! After storytime, we made Inside Out holiday ornaments featuring all of the characters. We had a blast! It was truly a joyful experience. Check out all of our photos below.
Snowmen, reindeer, picture magnets, water color holiday art and stamped gift bags were all in the making during an hour of craft making last Tuesday. Children of all ages and their parents enjoyed going from station to station all designed to encourage different art mediums and imaginations. The results were both creative and fun for everyone!
