Eager Readers
Mondays, October 2 - November 13, 2:30 - 3:30 at BES
This book club for Grades 3 & 4 is an after-school offering at Bow Elementary. Intent to Participate forms will be sent home through the school and must be returned to Mrs. Brewster in the Library by Wednesday, September 20th. Because so many children have been interested in the past, we expect to do a lottery to fill the spots. Those who do not get into the Fall session are guaranteed a spot in the Spring.
Stuffed Animal Sleepover
Friday, September 29th, 5:30-7:00 p.m.
Join us for a special pajama storytime for you and one of your stuffed animal friends!  After the story, stuffed animals are invited to stay at the library for a sleepover.  Pick them up the next day (9/30) and see what fun they got into overnight.  Please register by 9/25 by clicking the hand under the program name on our calendar. Questions?  Email Kate at or call 224-7113.

Please do not bring a favorite stuffed animal for the sleepover that your child needs in order to sleep.
LEGO Batman Movie and Building

There is no school today, so drop by and watch the LEGO Batman Movie, then build with our wide assortment of blocks. The film starts at 2:00 with popcorn for all. Building begins immediately following the movie. Please note: For safety reasons, children under the age of 11 must be accompanied by an adult who remains on the lower level.
