Happy July Everyone! We’re enjoying summertime at the Dalton Community Library and hope you are, too.
Our Summer Reading Club, “Dig Into Reading,” has started and many, many children have enrolled. Kids are reading and logging their library books with so much excitement. Everyone is very proud of them. Encouraging the children to read or listen to a story is always our goal. The Summer Reading Club runs through the month of July, so there is plenty of time if you’d like to join. Stop in or give us a call: 570.563.2014.
The summer activity groups have been keeping the children busy with activities such as yoga, Minecraft club, LEGO club, book clubs and more. The children are creating. They are learning. They are sharing ideas that are keeping their minds active while on summer vacation. Most importantly, they are having fun while doing it.
A summer club that is exciting and new to our library is our art club. The group is taught by Lackawanna Trail Elementary Center’s Art teacher, Mr. Dan Demora. The students went on a field trip to The Electric Trolley Museum in Scranton. While there, the children did some sketching and took a ride on the trolley. They also learned a lot about the history of the Northern Electric Trolley system. The group is working on a tile mosaic mural that is based on what they’ve learned, what they’ve sketched and the history of the trolley. It was a great learning experience for the children and everyone enjoyed riding the trolley. We wait anxiously to see the finished mural at the end of the program.
On Thursdays, we are still offering a young adult bridge club throughout the summer. The group is always welcoming new players. If you are interested in learning this card game, call or stop by for details. We are also looking for ideas for future young adult groups to start in the Fall. If you’d like to send in ideas, please email them to JFamiletti@albright.org .
