Saturday, Septmber 30th the Coast Guard is bringing a boat to the library to teach children and their families about boats and boat safety from 10:30-12:30. For older children, there will be a soap “scrimshaw” craft in the program room from 10-11:30. Younger ones are welcome to do our maritime scavenger hunt all day long! Sure to be a boatload of fun for the entire family.
Due to the oncoming tropical storm, we are postponing tonight’s program: Nat Benjamin’s Sail to Haiti. We plan to reschedule the event to an evening in October.
For now, the library plans to remain open. Tonight’s pajama-friendly Family Night at 6:30 in the children’s room will still take place. Please see NOAA’s website for up-to-date storm warnings and watches. Although we may miss the brunt of the storm, be cautious of high winds, coastal flooding, and potential power outages.. Stay safe!
