A Month of Gingerbread

GET CREATIVE! During the month of December, the WBPL will be assembling a montage of images, recipes, kit ideas, dioramas, fun and crazy examples of how our patrons (and staff) get creative with Gingerbread! We will be showcasing them on our Flickr album. Prizes will be awarded to the MOST creative in a variety of age groups. Send your entry images to westbpl80@gmail.com

 

Story Strolls: the Library on the Lawn

GET OUTDOORS! An interactive display of favorite children’s books will be set out every dry day that the staff is in the building. “Walk” through the books and engage your children with the content by repeating the chants, asking questions, and finding the next page in the Stroll. “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See,” will be following by “The Gingerbread Man,” and “What I Like About Me,” in large, easy to read format. Check it out!

 

Serenity Space: Peace on the Patio

ON THE PATIO: With the words of five mindfulness poems by author, Kate Coombs, attached to the library walls, patrons are invited to sit on the bench, watch the water element and clear their minds of worry, fret, and day-to-day concerns. Bundle up and let yourself relax and be at peace. Access the podcast version of the poems here.
