Chat with Caroline
Dear Wonderful Patrons,
The weather is finally warming up – hurrah!
The new hours start this month. The Library is now open Tuesday 10am-2pm, Thursday 4-8pm, and Sunday noon-4pm. I am happy that our hours no longer conflict with the hours of Berry Memorial Library, the other library in Buxton.
Join me for Story Time on Tuesday mornings from 10:30-11am. Listen to a story, sing some songs, enjoy some felt board fun, and participate in a craft. There will be a theme each month. The theme for May is spring/flowers.
Try a challenge or free build during Lego Club on Sunday afternoons. All ages are welcome. Lego Club is from 1-3pm but you may arrive and leave at your leisure within this time frame. Feel free to join one or more Lego Clubs as your schedule allows.
If you have thought about writing your memoir, join me at a Meet and Greet at the Library from 6-8pm on Wednesday, May 10. Meet Lorraine Lindstedt, the coordinator of the monthly Memoir Writing Workshop series, visit with current members of the memoir writing workshop, and learn more about this program. Light refreshments will be served, and all adults are welcome.
Join me for craft night on Thursday, May 18 from 6:30-7:30pm. We will be making paper beads. This event is free, and all supplies will be provided.

LEGO Club is from 1-3pm every Sunday.
Take one of our LEGO challenges, make a design from “The LEGO Ideas Book,” or create your own design.

Monthly Calendar of Events
Memoir Writing Meet and Greet
Participants enjoyed the first two Lego Clubs in April.
Creations that were built included a basketball hoop and several modes of transportation.
One of the participants looked through “The LEGO Ideas Book” for inspiration. He enjoyed reading the book and laughing at the funny comments of the Lego people.
(“The LEGO Ideas Book” gives ideas for a wide variety of projects and contains funny dialogue. If you want to create and build at home, feel free to check out this book and get inspired!)
