Dalton Library Delights: Dalton Community Library welcomes March, looks forward to April book and bake sale

Children from our Story Time group, which meets at 11 a.m. Tuesdays, ended February with big smiles. During this time, we always listen to a few books, review colors, numbers and letters, and do crafts. We have a lot of fun together each week while learning. We invite other children to join in the fun. At the end of February, we read a book about visiting the dentist and how we need to take care of our teeth.

The grade school kids in our after-school group, Kids Crew, have been busy creating through the use of K’Nex, Legos, and Keva Planks. This group is utterly unstoppable when it comes to creating and unanimously agree that, with a lot of hard work, our ideas can be put into action.

Our Kid’s Crew group meets at 4 p.m. every Tuesday. Any school-aged children interested in coming to our group are more than welcome to join us.

The Dalton Community Library is participating in the Lackawanna County Library System’s book challenge.

In case you haven’t heard the details yet, this challenge consists of 22 categories of books. From these categories, a reader can choose what books he or she wants to read. One of the best things about this challenge is that there are no rules to participate in this event; you just have to read.

After reading four books, we ask that you share the titles of the books with your local Lackawanna County Library by writing them on a slip of paper and submitting it at the library. It’s that easy. Read some books and share the titles. With the unpredictable weather that’s normal for March, wouldn’t it be nice to curl up with a book in your cozy home?

This challenge continues until the end of March and everyone is encouraged to participate. Stop by the Dalton Community Library to choose your books or ask any questions you may have.

With many patrons talking about how quickly time is passing, we’d like to remind everyone that next month is our library’s Spring Book and Bake Sale. The sale is set for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 22. Donations of books will be taken during March. We are also looking for bakers to donate baked goods. If you’d like to help by baking, stop in at the library or call us at 570-563-2014. We appreciate everyone’s help for our sale.

If you have any questions or are interested in our children’s or adult programs, email JFamiletti@albright.org or call us at the number above.

See you at the library!
