Plumb Library to offer vacation activities

Feb 11, 2019

When school is out, the Joseph H. Plumb Memorial library works hard to provide students with fun activities for the whole family.

On Tuesday, Feb. 19, from 1 to 2 p.m. Ms. Emma from Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School will offer a program called “Science at the Library: Metal Exploration.” The welding student will teach about properties of metal. Registration is required.  Register at the Plumb Library’s Event Calendar found on their website. This program is best for ages 5 and up.

The next day from 1 to 2 p.m., Science at the Library will explore the senses. Ms. Beth from Ebb and Flow Wellness will provide an hour of sensory exploration. Registration is required. This program is also best for ages 5 and up.

On Friday, Feb. 22 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., Science at the Library will continue with Ms. Brenna, a junior Friend of the Library, leading an exploration of pressure and suction. Registration is required for this program, which is also appropriate for children 5 and older.

Just after that, from 2 to 3 p.m., children of all ages (and a grown-up if needed) can register for a “Thank Goodness It's Friday story time” and craft with Amos, our therapy greyhound, and his "mom," Holly.  Holly and the Junior Friends of the Library will read stories to Amos and children, and then do a craft project. Registration is requested for this event. 

On Feb. 21 from 4 to 5 p.m., Plumb Library will host Family Bingo. Interested families should register on the Events Calendar All ages are welcome.  Adults can play, or help their children.
