The New Year is Fast Approaching

Well hello!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and got to spend some quality time with family and friends.  The Library will start the New Year off by being closed on Tuesday, January 1st and will reopen on Wednesday, January 2nd.

Have you been wondering what all the talk about robotics and coding is?  You can come to the Waterville Library on January 12th and January 26th from 9-11 am to find out.  You will meet 2 different kinds of robots named Dash and Dot from Wonder Workshop. There are multiple apps used to code and program these robots that allow people of all ages to interact with them.  You can come anytime between 9 and 11 to see the robots and do not need to stay the whole time. Here is a link to an introductory video if you want to see what Dash and Dot are like https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=6&v=LA9py48X6_o.  If there is interest in having a class to learn more about these robots please let Lee Jones know.

So, with that said, this will be let by Suzie Vermetten – If anything changes between now and then I will be sure and let everyone know by posting here, as well as on Watervill’s Library Facebook page as well as the Friends of Waterville Facebook page.  So please check back there often for any and all updates…..

Waterville’s Library Lego Club

Good Morning, Afternoon or Evening Waterville (depending on when you are reading this!)  Well, we just had our second meeting of the Lego Club and once again it was a great success as we had at least 15 kids show up.  I can only imagine and  hope that the club will continue to grow and grow.  We had quite a few kids come back from the first time and some kids that were away on vacation and a handful of new kids that were not here for the first meeting.  Remember, it doesn’t matter if you have kids that attended the first of second Lego Club meeting, all kids are welcome at any of our gatherings.
We are hoping as some of the other summer activities wind down that we will have more and more kids show up and participate.  It truly is a time for kids just to get together and be kids.  Where they can use their imaginations to build anything and everything they want to.  It’s a place where they can make new friends as well as get to hang out with friends they already have.  It doesn’t matter if you kid(s) are 4 or 18, they are all welcome to join in on the fun.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask myself, Beth Bachura or Jeannette Bergquist.  I thing between the three of us we should be able to answer any questions you might have.
And Remember……..
Keep On Reading ~

Waterville’s First Lego Club Meeting

What a great success our first ever Waterville Library Lego Club get together was.  We had approximately 20 kids and even a few adults.  The kids really used their imaginations and built a lot of really cool things.  Below are some photos of our first get together.  Please keep in mind that the Waterville Library Lego Club Meets the 2nd and 4th Thursday of Every Month from 5:30-6:30pm…

SUMMER READING HAS BEGUN AT THE WATERVILLE LIBRARY

Today we had our first story time and I would say it is off to a good start. We had 4 kids, with hopefully more coming each week. We read two books today, Where the Wild Things Are and The Giving Tree. The kids also got to learn about a Freestyle drum called a Djembe Drum and also got to touch and play with the drum.
 
We will be meeting every Tuesday morning from 10:30-11:30am until the end of July so I hope to see more and more kids coming every week.
 
Also, don’t forget that this coming Thursday from 5:30-6:30pm starts our LEGO CLUB – For Ages 4 to 100.
So I hope to see lot’s of people…..
