The Lexington Public Library is hosting Storytime on Wednesdays this fall. Pre-readers and their caregivers are invited to share stories, finger-plays and other activities each Wednesday morning from 10:30 to 11:00 at the Lexington Public Library. We are looking forward to seeing you at our next Storytime on Wednesday, August 27th at 10:30.
The Library will be hosting a Fifth Friday Pitch Party on Friday, August 29 from 9:30-11:00. You are invited to join us in this kick off for Coffee and Cards at the Library, which will resume on Friday, September 5.
The adult summer reading program, Literary Elements will continue through Labor Day. If you haven't already registered, be sure to stop by the circulation desk and register for this program. You will get a cool blue tote bag with lots of goodies inside. Then as you read/listen to your favorite authors, all you have to do is rate the materials read and turn in the reviews. This will enter you in our weekly prize drawings. After Labor Day, we will have a grand prize drawing for Chamber Bucks.
Novels for Knitters and other Stitchers meets on Tuesdays at 3:00 p.m. If you enjoy stitching--knitting, crocheting, quilting, cross stitch, needlepoint, or have another portable stitching project--join us at the library for two hours of stitching and visiting. We will meet on Tuesdays, August 26, September 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30 in the Lexington Public Library Board Room. Our next meeting is on Tuesday, August 26, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. We would love to have you join us.
