Monster Madness

Join Monster Madness at the library with a full line-up of FREE school vacation events, the week of February 26th.

Monsters vs. Martians Challenge -- Monday, February 26 ALL DAY  Help! The Jaffrey Public Library is being invaded. Drop by throughout the day to build your own monster or martian on the Cutter Creativity Wall. Don't forget to ask a librarian to take your picture for our Galaxy Gallery! All ages.

Baby Martians -- Tuesday, February 27 at 3:30 PM  Learn basic crochet and start to make your very own baby martian. (Or monster. We're not fussy.) Must be comfortable counting and tying your own shoelaces to attend this program. Registration required.

Robot Races -- Thursday, March 1 at 3:30 - 5:30 PM  This special 2-hour Maker Club will feature a series of robot challenges using our new Ozobots, iPad, and other maker supplies. All ages.

Genre Tasting -- Friday, March 2 at 4:00 pm - This new multi-age book club allows participants in Grades 2 -12 to choose their own title in a specified genre, read it, and share it with the group in a discussion facilitated by your librarians.  March's genre is FANTASY. Your librarians will also choose a book in that genre with an accompanying recipe that we'll all prepare (and taste) during our book tasting discussion. Both Ms. Andrea and Ms. Julie have severe food allergies but are enthusiastic cooks, making us the perfect pair to lead this food and book tasting venture. Due to the nature of this program, children under age 12 must have a caregiver in the library during the program. Please note that the registration form requires all participants to indicate any food allergies or sensitivities.

Saturday Cinema -- Saturday, March 3 at 12:00 Noon - Family-friendly title to be announced.

Storytimes at the usual times - Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:30 am -- Our Storytimes are open to all ages so bring the whole family!
