Evening Story Time: Can’t make it during the day for story time?  Join us on February 14th, March 14th, April 11th and May 9th, from 6-7 PM for an evening story hour.  We’ll have stories to hear and crafts to make.  Caregiver attendance is required.  No registration is required.  We hope to see you there!

Young Critics Book Club: Aimed at grades 5 through 8.
We’re shaking things up a bit.  We will be reading books that have been turned into movies, so each month we will read one book and then watch the movie made from it.  The Young Critics will get together the last Tuesday of each month to talk (and argue) about the books and movies they are reading/watching.  Movies will be shown on Saturday afternoons.  Aimed at Grades 5 through 8. For questions call 242-6322, ext 4.

SOLAR ECLIPSE
Join us at Brehm Library at 12:30 PM on August 21st as we celebrate the first total solar eclipse in the United States since 1979.  There will be space themed games and crafts.  Kids will even get to make and launch their very own rockets.  We will also be serving freeze-dried ice cream, the same ice cream that astronauts eat in space!  The grand finale will be the viewing of the full eclipse, and we will even be handing out free eclipse viewing glasses to those in attendance!  Don’t miss out on your chance to take part in this rare event. Registration is required.  Call 618-242-6322 to sign up.
