A big welcome back to school from Schoharie Free Library! A great big thanks to all those who helped make our Dig Into Reading Summer Reading Program such a blast! The Library is now kicking into “Back to School” mode and will be adding new programs monthly for all ages.
We are always looking for programming volunteers to assist us in meeting the needs of the community and are currently looking for a volunteer to facilitate a Mommy & Me program. The parameters of this program are broad in scope with the program consisting of a parent/infant(toddler) interactive program involving playtime for little ones and “Mommy time” (caregiver time) socialization for mommies/caregivers. If you are interested in facilitating this program please contact Program Director, Erika Schmid, at 295-7127.
A special programming note. For the month of September only Chess Club will be meeting the 3rd and 5th Mondays (September 16th and 30th) due to the Labor Day holiday.
Mondays Knitting & Needles 6:00-9:00pm Open time. All ages/All skills. We are expanding! Bring your latest project to share. Whether it be knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting. The new group project is a hat/scarf/mitten project using yarn donated to the library. If you are unable to make the group please feel free to stop in and pick out your free yarn for your project, which can be either as plain or fancy as you wish. Finished items will be donated to SCCAP (Schoharie County Community Action Program) to be given away as part of the annual “Coats for Kids” program this fall. Call 295-7127 for details.
