Welcome back to the MCLS blog: Shelf Talk! This week, we have several updates regarding library programs, hours, and exciting news!
At the libraries, you can expect to find STEM Challenges. This is a program which was previously featured at each of our locations, at we are excited to bring it back! These kits are available for pick-up at all 6 of our locations. These are perfect craft challenges for Pre-K-1st graders with help, and 2nd-6th graders.
Our STEM/STEAM Challenges will be updated each month. This month, participants will use the provided materials to create a Picasso inspired abstract face. Once you have completed the challenge, we encourage you to upload a photo and tag us on Facebook or Instagram.
You are also invited to join a contest being held at the Wilson Public Library. Participants will place a guess on how many Skittles are in a jar. The person who guesses the closest amount without going over will win a prize. This contest will be happening throughout September and October, with the winner announced on Halloween!
In Keiser, the library will be closed Saturday, September 16, to participate in the Keiser Harvest Festival just down the street. Be sure to stop by and visit us to see what goodies and fun are available at our booth.
Also, please remember that all MCLS locations will be closed Tuesday, September 19, for staff in-service. During this time, our employees will meet in Blytheville to talk about new implementations and to discuss ways to bring our patrons, like you, better service.
In other exciting library news, a new logo is being introduced to promote our children’s focused programs and resources. We have been working on this behind-the-scenes for a while now, and we are excited to bring this into the public’s eyes. The new logo which features Romeo, the chinchilla who lives at the Blytheville location, can be found within this blog.
