Return of Stop ‘n’ Craft Saturday!

Exciting news: Stop ‘n’ Craft will return on October 21st at our Eastworks location!

Just in time for some fall decorating, we’ll be PAINTING PUMPKINS in all sorts of silly, surreal, or slightly spooky styles.

As always, the Library will provide all of the necessary supplies — just stop by anytime between 9:30am and 12:30pm and have fun! All ages are welcome at this event, but extra little crafters may need the help of an adult.

We hope to see you there!

Story Hour Returns in our NEW SPACE!

Never fear, Story Hour is here! The Kids’ Corner is set up in our new Eastworks​ space, and Ms. Lynne from the Easthampton Family Center will be returning to share stories, songs, and crafts with our preschool crowd.

Join us at Suite 142 in Eastworks THIS THURSDAY, September 21st at 10:30 to celebrate ocean life – including a certain hermit crab in need of a new home – at our FIRST Story Hour of the year. Story Hour will continue each week on the same day and time throughout the school year (except when Easthampton public schools are not in session).

 

Hope to see you then!

Write Your Heart Out

We’re all writers, and we all have stories to tell — join us and discover yours!

Throughout the month of March, the Library will be host to a Creative Writing Group for 10-13 year olds every Wednesday, 3:30-4:30pm. Although, if your child is interested but doesn’t quite fall within that age range, don’t hesitate to contact us about the possibility of them joining.

Long-time educator Jennifer Delozier will lead kids through different forms of writing with various prompts, while providing participants with the support necessary to get their ideas on paper. Writing can be funny or serious, and sharing is always optional.

Space is limited, so don’t delay! Please contact the Youth Department to register your child: youthdept@ewmlibrary.org or 413-529-1605.

Return of Stop ‘n’ Craft Saturdays!

Stop ‘n’ Craft returns after a month off in December, and we’ve lined up something you’re going to love!

Drop in anytime between 9:30am-12:30pm this Saturday, January 28th, and see us in the Youth Department. We’ll be making critters using the heart shape as our base and inspiration, like this lovely fish! If you’re feeling particularly clever, you could even turn it into a card of sorts to give to someone special in your life. We’ll have everything you need, so just bring yourselves (and perhaps any library items you need to return) and have fun!

All ages are welcome at this event, but extra little crafters may need a helping hand. Hope to see you then!
