Summer Reading 2019
This year all Summer Reading Program events, crafts, movies and games will all have an outer space theme. Learn about Astrology from Dr DiSabatino or watch an all ages song and dance show perfomed by Gracie and Lacy entitled "Fly Me to the Moon". Meet Patricia Craig, PhD, and learn about the Mars Rover: Curiosity, or get an outer space weather forecast from WPDE's own Ed Piotrowski.
Teens can make Planet Pillows and Eclipse Shirts, or nosh out on Out of this World Sweets. Kids will have fun at the interactive science show presented by the Roper Mountain Science Center, and have a blast watching shows by Porkchop Productions and Rock Star Magic.
We're still hard at work finalizing our 2019 Summer Reading Program, so check back soon for a complete listing of events and activities...
Buy a Bag - Go Green
To keep our city beautiful…
Beginning this week, single-use plastic bags will no longer be provided for patrons at the Customer Service Desk. You are encouraged to bring your own reusable bag or purchase an environmentally conscious, reusable tote bag from the Friends of the Chapin Memorial Library? The cost is $2.00 per bag and all proceeds benefit the Friends. Use them for the beach, use them for the store, but we like it best when you use them for books!
