The Moore County Public Library is hosting several new after school programs. The library has partnered with the students of the Moore County High School’s National Honors Society for Study Buddies, a program to help younger students with their homework on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
On Tuesday afternoons from 3:30 to 4 p.m., students in first and second grades can participate in Rad Readers, an exciting reading program. Students in third and fourth grades can participate in this reading fun from 4 to 4:30 p.m.
To finish off the week, every Friday the library will host Free 4 All Fridays. Participants will be able to watch cartoons, play the Wii, or pick one of the board games to play with a friend. Friday fun begins at 3 p.m. and lasts until 4:30 p.m. No sign-ups are necessary for Free 4 All Fridays.
The library continues to host its in-house pre-school reading program, Little Bookworms, on the second and fourth Wednesday mornings beginning at 10 a.m. Any child from birth to 5 years old is welcome to come and join Miss Cheryl for reading fun. Please call for more information or to sign your young person up.
Teen Tuesday, a monthly program, is planned for students in grades six through 12. Area teens are invited to join us on Tuesday evening from 4 to 5 p.m. Check out our Facebook page or pick up one of our calendars for dates and times.
The library will continue to visit Star-Brite daycare and Head Start, as well as leave books at the Moore County Senior Citizens and Lynchburg Nursing Center.
October is shaping up to be a busy month. Along with the after-school programs and regularly scheduled monthly programs, the library will be hosting a Family Event on Oct. 28 from 5 to 7 p.m. Activities include watching a movie and making milk-Jug monsters.
Then, on Friday, Oct. 31, library officials invite everyone along as they take a Cemetery Stroll, stopping to trick-or-treat along the way. They’ll stop in the cemetery to visit with Mr. Jack Daniel and learn some interesting facts about his life and others. It is requested that those interested in Cemetery Stroll sign up for the event so they will know how many are planning to attend. Only 30 spots are available for this event. So, don’t procrastinate — sign up today.
Other events are in the works, so be sure and check out the library’s Facebook page to keep up with what is happening at your local public library. All citizens are invited to all our programs. The library offers free computer access and Wi-Fi for its patrons. For more information, call (931) 759-7285.
