After School Adjustments

Because of the Friends of the Macedon Public Library Book Sale next week, we will be unable to have our after school program in the community room.  We will set up the TV and chairs in the Teen area at the back of the library (like we had to do last fall for the same reason).  
We will only watch a short movie, Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown.
Then, weather permitting, we will head outside for some creative play!  So, hope for the best!

Rafe Martin

Thanks to the Friends of the Macedon Public Library, we were very fortunate to have local author and storyteller, Rafe Martin, visit us on Sunday.  Rafe is the author of over 20 children's books, and he delighted both the adults and children with his expressive retelling of The Storytelling Princess or, as he likes to call it, The Lost Princess.

The Borrowers

Next week's movie for our Wednesday after school program is The Borrowers! 
 They're charming and small and live behind the wall!

Kids and Dogs

Yesterday's after school group had fun and did a little community service at the same time.  After watching the very funny Dogs & Cats, the kids made dog toys that we are going to donate to the Humane Society. 
We tested one of the toys (a fleece ball) on Macy, our therapy dog.  I think it was a success!
 

And then we went outside and ran around and rolled down library hill in celebration of our first beautiful Wednesday in months!

Spring After School Program

April at the Macedon Library is a time for birthdays. 
 Yes, 5 of our staff members were born within a 2 week period! 
 To celebrate, we'll be showing one of my favorite movies on April 8th, Matilda, and eating cake!
