Until then, we don’t want to give out any information that may change but we should have something to announce here in the next few weeks!
The Valley Heights Art class has pieces of art on display at the Waterville Public Library. We have been encouraging the public to come in and look at all the pieces and to vote on which piece is their favorite piece of art. The winner of the Peoples Choice Award will have money donated in their name to the Valley Heights Art Department to help them in buying supplies. I hope to see as many people as possible over the next two days so we can show these kids that art is alive and doing well in Marshall County…
The Library will be closed tomorrow, Saturday the 19th in observacne of MLK Day! However, we will be open Monday from 2pm-7pm for an open house! I hope to see everyone there…
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…..
