August happenings at the library

Posted

The Park County Library has wrapped up our Summer Reading Program, but the fun still continues at the Powell Library. I hope everyone had a chance to visit the library table at the Park County Fair. We had a blast being at the fair and being part of the parade. 

For the kids, join Ms. Renee at Baby and Toddler Time every Monday from 10:30-11:00 am. Bring the little ones, for nursery rhymes, songs, play and early literacy activities.

Ms. Renee also does a fabulous Storytime every Wednesday from 10:30-11:00 a.m. Stop by for wonderful stories, movement, craft and fun.

Then on Thursday, Aug. 19, at 11 a.m., stop by the Powell Library for kid’s craft time. Come make your own fire-breathing dragon craft; have fun hanging out and making your own dragon.

Of course, August also means back to school time. Join the Powell Library on Tuesday, Aug. 24, from 3:30-4:15 p.m. for our Back to School Banana Splits program. All kids under 18, stop by the Powell Library and enjoy a banana split as we celebrate the end of summer and back to school time. 

The Powell Library will be offering a wonderful program by Diamond Wings Game Birds on Tuesday, Aug. 10 at noon. This program is open to all ages as we learn from owners, Karl and Stacy Bear, about their experiences and visit with some of their birds. 

Friends of the Powell Library will be hosting a wonderful program at the Powell Library today (Thursday) at 6:30 p.m. Stop by the library and join NWC Professor of English Rachel Hanan for a discussion of Shakespeare plays that will be presented by Montana Shakespeare in the Parks program. This year’s plays will be Cymbeline and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The Powell Library will be a familiar face at the Farmer’s Market. Stop by and say hi every Monday from 4:30-6:30 p.m. We will be there to answer questions and provide some fun and information about the library.   

The Powell Library wants to hear from you, as we move forward with reimagining the library and how best the building can reflect the needs of the community. Please stop by the Powell Library, fill out a quick survey and let us know what you would like from a new space. We want to hear from all of you, the community, what you would like from your library space.
