The Youth Services department continues to offer many programs for young patrons, including virtual preschool Storytime each Friday at 11am on Zoom. There is also a book club for middle grade kids each Wednesday at 1pm on Zoom. The latest program addition is a monthly Arts & Craft Club meet up for children of all ages beginning this December. Sign up and each first Wednesday of the month come pick up a take-and-make craft bag at the Whiting Library. You will receive directions, templates, and supplies to make fun and interesting craft projects at home. Remember, Librarian Carrie King is always here to field your questions and coordinate projects that interest you and your kids. Get in touch with her directly at email@example.com.
It’s that special giving time of year and Whiting’s “Paws of Motion” month encourages animal lovers to share in the gift of giving to the Springfield Humane Society (SHS) from December 1st- 31st. During this festive season, let’s show a little extra love to our furry friends by stocking the SHS with much-needed supplies. Check out our website for a list of most needed items. Each donation gets you entered into a raffle to win a gift basket of amazing artisan products. Please bring donations to the library during our regular Front Porch Pick Up hours.
Lastly, this is your advance notice that Whiting Library will change opening hours starting Saturday, January 2, 2021. The new hours will be Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday from 10am-6pm and Saturdays from 10am-2pm.
