Teen Writing Workshop Tomorrow at 1pm!

Don’t forget that tomorrow, Helen Dunlap Newton, author of Night of the Amber Moon and Do Your Hear What I Hear?, will be talking to our teens (6th grade and up) and leading them through a writing workshop! She’ll also be holding a writing contest for them that will conclude in early July. The workshop is from 1:00-2:30 tomorrow (Wednesday)!

We Need Volunteers for the Summer Reading Program!

We are in need of volunteers for summer reading (as always)! This year, we have an application for teens to fill out if they’re interested in volunteering.

A few things to note:

-it’s a quick turnaround….we need the applications back by May 17th (either emailed to director@nortonvillelibrary.org or dropped off at the library)

-Applicants must be 13 years old by June 2, 2023

-There will be a mandatory orientation for volunteers, dates TBD but there will be options to choose to attend

-Scheduling will be totally flexible…applicants will let us know how much or how little they’d like to help and we’ll work around their schedules)

-Volunteers will receive a t-shirt and a special gift at the end of the summer

-Volunteers can still participate in the summer reading program and earn prizes

-Any hours a volunteer works at the library can go towards community service hours at JCN for the 2023-24 school year

I know it’s a lot of info! Let us know if you have any questions.

Free Petting Zoo and Easter Activities!

It’s Easter time, and that means we’re having our Annual Petting Zoo immediately following the Nortonville Easter Egg Hunt! The event is free and open to everyone. We’ll have a variety of baby animals to see and pet, plus Easter activities for all ages. Beginning around 10:30 am until the library closes at noon (or it’s nap time for the baby animals).

If you have animals you’d like to bring for the event, please contact Greta at 913-886-2060 or director@nortonvillelibrary.org.
