Did you know that each week of the summer reading program the library raffles off some cool prizes?
Raffle prizes include hardcover books, posters, stuffed animals, tote bags, and t-shirts. Items change each Monday morning, so keep coming back!
Just come to the children's room, and you can enter your name into the raffle; raffle entries are not dependent on how many hours you read. All you need to do to enter the raffle is come into the library! The library is open five days a week in the summer, so you can enter to win a raffle up to five times in a week!!
Raffles are open to children through the age of 6th grade. Each child may only win one raffle prize over the course of the summer, in order to give more kids a chance to win raffle prizes.
GOOD LUCK!!!

Next Tuesday's program should be a blast...have you signed up?

Yo-Yos, Music, and Dance with Ooch
Tuesday, July 18 at 3:00 PM
Kindergarten – 6th grade (but all are welcome)

Pre-registration is recommended (space is limited). Call the Children’s Room at (978) 456 – 2381 to register.

Come see the show that has been getting rave reviews from libraries all over the state! Featuring Brett Outchcunis (aka Ooch), this awesome, high energy show is half yo-yo tricks and half dance party, geared to kids in kindergarten through 6th grade (but all ages are welcome!). During the first part of the show, Ooch performs some of his favorite yo-yo tricks as well as takes requests from the audience. The second part of the show is “dance.” In Ooch's world “dance” can mean MANY things like follow-along dance (where the audience copies Ooch's movements to the music – or vice versa), popular line dances such as the Cupid Shuffle, Cotton Eyed Joe, Cha Cha Slide & others, Body Rhythms (STOMP), Freeze Dance and even Hula Hoops to music – all to popular songs requested by the audience. And every now and then Ooch has also been known to sprinkle in a fun contest or two such as Limbo and Coke & Pepsi...

Where is Nibbles???

Nibbles the Book Monster is hiding in the children’s room…can you find him?

If you find Nibbles, leave him where he is, but be sure to tell the children’s librarian that you found him.

(And as a reward for finding Nibbles, you can choose a sticker from our sticker tin!)

Under One Sky: Stories & Songs to Build a Better World
Wednesday, July 12 at 3:00 PM
All Ages (best for ages 4+)
Drop-ins are welcome; or, to register, call the Children's Room at (978) 456 - 2381.
Acclaimed singer and storyteller Davis Bates will be returning to the HPL with a performance of participatory songs and stories for the whole family. This wonderful program will include traditional and contemporary folk songs and stories from New England and around the world. Hear how coyote got his howl, how foam came to be in the ocean, and more, and be prepared to sing, move and clap your hands. There will even be a short lesson on how to play music on spoons and a guest appearance by a dancing wooden dog named Bingo. Pete Seeger has called Davis a “genius of a storyteller.” Davis’ traditional and participatory performance style empowers and encourages audiences to join in the fun, and to take the songs and stories home with them to share with others.
