YOUNGSVILLE LIBRARY UPDATES
Summer Crafts “to go”: The Youngsville Library’s Summer Craft and Story is going strong, thanks to a few safety tweaks.
“Due to COVID guidelines we’ve had to make some modifications to our annual Summer Story and Crafts program this year but our library has still found a way to offer crafts and a story to kids,” said Kristy Wallace, library director. “Since we obviously aren’t allowed to offer traditional group programming inside the library, YPL has contactless ‘grab and go’ craft bags that are located in our lobby for kids or parents to access during our regular business hours. Each free craft corresponds to a story-time video link found on our webpage. Kids can listen to the story being read and then complete a craft at home. TCCS Librarian Sara Robinson has been organizing our Annual Stories and Crafts program each year and this year she has taped herself reading the stories. Sara always does a great job with stories and crafts and this year is no exception. “
New crafts are made available each Wednesday. This free program began July 8 and will continue through Aug. 19. No registration is necessary. If you missed crafts from past weeks, no worries as the crafts from each week are kept in the lobby until gone and links to the video stories are kept on Youngsville’s website. Crafts are limited to 25 per week and are on a first-come, first-served basis. Youngsville Library also encourages kids to pick up a free snack bag when picking up their craft bag. Visit the YoungsvilleLibrary.org homepage and look for the “Crafts & Stories” icon for video links and more information or call 563-7670 during business hours: Mondays and Wednesdays from noon to 6 p.m. and noon to 4 p.m. Fridays.
YPL Ribbon Books: Youngsville Library’s collection of “gently-used/almost like new” fundraising books are once again being made available for patrons to purchase for a donation of $1 per book. Due to COVID restrictions and staffing requirements, ribbon books will be available Mondays from 2:30 to 5 p.m. or by appointment. Call 563-7670 to schedule an appointment during business hours Monday and Wednesday from noon to 6 p.m. and noon to 4 p.m. Fridays. Ribbon books are treated under the same quarantine, handling, and cleaning guidelines as “regular” library materials.
