Your Imagination Station

With Connie & Shauna

   Where has the summer gone?! Who can tell me how we are already in September? I love this time of year though, because with it, brings the changing colors of the leaves, the cooler evenings, time to sit around a fire, and time for all the beautiful holiday decorations that will be coming in the next few months. One more thing that comes in the Fall, is the return to school. Please be on the lookout for all the children in the mornings and afternoons, as you are in your travels. Let’s all do our part to ensure the children have a safe school year.

   We are still having our 3:00pm book reading, every day, for the kiddos. Everyone seems to really be enjoying that little Storytime with us. And, speaking of Storytime, our FALL STORYTIME is open for registration, and we can’t wait to have your kiddos, ages birth-5, join us every Wednesday at 11:00am for stories, learning, playing, crafting, and making new friends. We begin Sept 15.

   GAME NIGHT  is back after a small break at the end of summer. We will be meeting the 1st Thursday of every month at 4:00pm. We have games and puzzles for all ages. Stop in and join us. You’ll be glad ya did.

   Our SIT & STITCH group still meets the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month from 11-1 and/or 4-6. Come to one timeframe or both, or stay all day. We’ve been having a lot of Show & Tell lately, and are beginning to bring in patterns to share with the group. We now have our very own filing cabinet for patterns. So, if you like to knit, crochet, cross stitch, sew, embroider, plastic canvas, whatever crafty project you enjoy, bring it in and enjoy some “me time” with a great group of ladies. Every week we have more new people, and we couldn’t be happier to see this group continue to grow.

   Our PLARN MAT group continues to meet every 3rd Friday of each month to prep bags to make mats for our deployed military. Y’all have no idea just how much they appreciate our efforts. Won’t you consider joining us to help, in such a small way, to support those you fight for our freedoms?

   Have you missed out on our monthly SENIOR STRETCH ? No worries. We get together the 3rd Saturday of the month at 11am  to stretch our muscles, help with our balance, and just keep ourselves moving. It’s very joint friendly, and easy to do chair exercises and stretches. And, maybe a little chair dancing in the near future. So, come on……..come stretch with us.

   Do you like the LARGE PRINT  books? We’ve just received several new ones from the Library Commission, and they’re ready for you to check them out. Stop in and see the nice selection we have.

   We also have a lot of PAPERBACK books that have recently been donated. They’ve all been cleaned and sanitized and are ready for you to take out, using our PAPERBACK EXCHANGE.

   Maybe you’re a PUZZLE person ? We have several shelves of puzzles, in a variety of sizes, for your enjoyment. With the changing of the seasons, I know many of you like to work puzzles. Stop in and check out our selection.

   Remember to keep an eye on our Facebook Page, Lynn Murray Memorial Library, to see all the upcoming events we have in store for you. You’ll also find our 3:00 Story, NEW RELEASE books, New To Us books, pictures from our events, and so much more.  

   Until next time…. grab a book and let your imagination take you places you’ve never been.
