Go Go Ostrander Gadget Lab!

Blog Section: 

Ever wonder what is inside a phone, CD player, stereo, or any other electronic device? Ostrander Branch Library’s Book Bunch kids got to find out.  With screw drivers and curiosity we disassembled all of the above and more.  It was fascinating and fun to see the inner workings of the electronics we use every day.

After School Book Bunch will reconvene in the Fall.  Summer Book Bunch begins Wednesday June 1st at 2pm.  Join us for, “Safety First” presented by the Delaware County Sherriff Department. 

 

Fairy Gardens take shape at Powell Branch Library

Blog Section: 

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.

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.

Outreach Storytime Craft For Local Seniors

Blog Section: 

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.
