Learn how to borrow the Blanding’s telescope in a one-hour instructional program on Wed. June 6 at 6 p.m. Would you like to take the library’s telescope home for a week of stargazing on a warm summer night? Come to the Blanding for an introduction to using our loaner telescope and learn how to find objects in the night sky.

KinderMusik on June 12
There will be a special Tot Time on Tuesday, June 12 at 10 a.m. with Wiggle & Giggle with Cheryl from KinderMusik. Older siblings are also welcome at this program. There will be music, movement and plenty of toddler-style energy! It's never too early to explore creativity to help build early pre-literacy and number skills. Space is limited, so call 508-252-4236 or stop in to reserve a place for your child. Regular Tot Times will continue on Tuesdays at 10 a.m. through the summer. Summer Story and Craft Hours for kids will begin in July.
