September 2017

Director's Note

Welcome back Wildcats! The staff and I at the library are excited for the 2017/18 school year. Each new year we welcome new students to the public library and welcome back familiar faces.

I am looking forward to some great activities this year for each age group. Keep watching for more updates for Stuffed Animal Sleepover, Pumpkinfest Haunted House and teen events! This month we are excited to bring back an event for the 4th and 5th grade group. Tune in below for information on how to be a Secret Agent on September 8th!

Right after Labor Day, I will be traveling to Utah to attend the yearly conference of the Association for Rural and Small Libraries. I am so excited to learn from other small libraries. I always come back full of great ideas!

I am sad to see summer go and I will be really sad when the weather turns. But I am so excited for what fall brings to Carlisle and to the library! It truly is a magical time!

Summer Reading Success!

YAC Outing

YAC had a great time at their yearly outing playing laser tag at Escape Chamber in Des Moines. YAC members who complete volunteer hours for the year are able to go on a special outing. Our YAC members completed over 100 hours of volunteer work this year, we are so grateful for their help!

Not So Spooky, Spooky-Room

Once again the teen YAC members will be hosting the Spooky room at the Library during this year's Pumpkin Fest. More information will be in the October Newsletter.

Therapy Dog Read-A-Loud

Do you have a child who is reading on their own? Bring them in to read to Phoebe, the therapy dog. This is a great way to build up a child's confidence in reading. If your child is just starting to read feel free to join them in reading to Phoebe.
