Happy Friday from the Great Bend Public Library.
As we make our way into spring, we will have a lighter programming schedule so that we can plan for the upcoming Summer Library Program (SLP). Before then, April 9 is the last day for Innovation Station, and April 13 is the last day for Story Time in the Children’s Department. In the meantime, we will be contacting schools to set up dates for Children’s SLP and getting the department ready for summer.
Today, Friday, March 30, bring the kids to the Children’s Department at 10:30 a.m. for Pre-School Story Time. The Tinkercad 3D Design Class is in the Dane G. Hansen Media Center at 3:30 p.m. Registration is required.
There are no events scheduled for Saturday, March 31.
The library will be closed for the holiday on Sunday, April 1.
On Monday, April 2, kids in grade 3 through grade 5 are invited to come and take part in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) activities during the Innovation Station at 4 p.m. in the Children’s Department.
