Unfortunately, our regular programs have been halted for the time being. We put on a really great Summer Reading Program this year though, and we hope to continue to provide creative programming at the GCPL while maintaining safety recommendations set forth by the federal government, the state government, and the CDC. We will be putting together “take-and-make” projects, create online programs, and doing our best to keep everyone safe.
Programs and Events:
Weekly Story Time on Thursdays
Parents and children under 4 years of age are invited to join us for a weekly story time complete with crafts and sing-alongs every Thursday at 10:00am. Older siblings are welcome too!
Story Wagons are LLS sponsored programs and free for the public to attend throughout the summer. They feature a variety of performances and activities, ranging from musical acts to craft events and live animal shows. You won’t want to miss out!
Liven up your daily walk by taking a “Story Walk!” Read through a story on the go by walking to each page of a book that’s been spread out across a designated path in the Genoa City area. Exercise your body and your mind, as well as having a great time bonding with your kids, while taking in a fantastic tale!
(First Monday of every month)
Crazy about LEGOs? Us too! And we’ve just got the thing to flex those creative muscles with our monthly LEGO club meetings on the first Monday of every month from 4-6pm. Drop by any time during then to build your own unique creation that fits our monthly theme, and we’ll display your work
1000 Books Before Kindergarten
If you ask us, we’d say it’s never too early to teach a child the joy of reading! Join the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program with your newborn, infant, and/or toddler and set them on the path to success before they even start school. By reading just one book (any book) to them a night for one year, you’ll have read 365 books. Repeat two more times and you’ll be up to 1,059 books within three years! It’s easier than you think and so worth it.
Reading Craft Bundles
We miss weekly story time as much as you do, and to compensate, we’ve decided to package the story time experience for you to take and enjoy at home! Every week we’re giving out Reading Craft Bundles, complete with a craft starter kit and three books hand-picked by a librarian. Call or email the library to set a time to pick up your bundle today!
