Here at the library, we have been enjoying the children for the after school programs on Thursday afternoons this year from 3:40pm to 4:30pm. We have had many different activities that works on mind building as well as teamwork. The kids are enjoying themselves and having fun. One on particular afternoon, we did Lego challenges where the kids would draw a card and on that card would be a saying. One example was build a tree house. So the kids would build a tree house using the Legos. Another week, we took 8 different 100 piece puzzles from our game area and dumped 4 puzzles onto each of the two tables. The kids then had to sort through the pieces and put the 4 puzzles back together. Next Thursday, October 26th, we will be playing Halloween Bingo. Come join us for fun and learning each Thursday after school.
On September 11th at 2:00pm here at the Anita Public Library, we will have Cheryl Wessels tell us all about the mission that started out as a small project and has just grown! There are many volunteers and steps that take place to make just one beautiful dress. These dresses will eventually make their way to Africa and put a beautiful smile on some little girls face.
