Paint/Craft/Create: Make a craft, painting, or other project with materials and instructors provided.
Craft and Chat: bring your current project and spend time with other crafters, sharing tips and ideas or just enjoying their company.
Community Game Night: Bring your card or board games to play with friends and family and/or meet other game enthusiasts. Learn some new games or play old favorites.
Trivia Night: Test your knowledge and luck! Bring a team, join a team, or compete solo. Interested in a specific TVshow/movie series/ book genre/sport? We will host a tournament and find questions to stump you!
Nonfiction Book Discussion: book group to discuss narrative nonfiction on a variety of topics.
Book Buzz: A monthly meeting to share favorite authors and books, to find out what is coming next from established and new authors. Discuss which titles are generating buzz and which should get more attention.
Hour of Code/Hour of STEAM: Know a child that likes to try new things? We can whip up activities and experiments to help them explore and learn with a group or at their own pace.
Middle Grade Writing Workshops: For kids in the middle grades who need some help or already like to write. They’ll start a notebook to help them explore creative and factual writing.
Read to a Therapy Dog: For beginners and anyone who wants to practice their reading skills with a soothing companion.
Drop in Crafts: Is your busy schedule keeping you from getting here for programs? Come in when you get a chance and the kids can do a craft while you browse.
Beginners Block Party: Toddlers and preschoolers come in to build with our awesome sets while their adults can socialize and relax.
Lego/Manga/Minecraft/Pokeman/Dr. Who/whatever: You want to meet others interested in your fandom? We can host a get together that may lead to a regular meeting.
So which of these programs would you attend? Do you have other ideas? Print and fill out the survey or come in to pick one up!
