Family Read-In

This month’s Homeschool Gathering will be a little change of pace. Please join us for a Family Read-in on Wednesday, December 30th in the Story Room. Read, play games, relax and enjoy family and friends. Cookies and cider will be served from 9 am to 4:30 pm at this informal drop-in. Grandparents and grandchildren are encouraged to share the gift of reading together. And as an outreach, Homeschool Gatherers will be reading to/with seniors from area nursing homes, assisted living and senior centers. What better way to warm the Holidays than to spread youthful cheer to a senior in need? If you would like to participate in the outreach please email (jplibrarystaff@gmail.com) the time you can commit (1 hour is recommended). As time slots are filled I will send updates. Thank you and Happy Holidays!

November Gathering

Homeschool Gathering is this coming Wednesday. Join us to go back in time to the 1600’s to compare our family holiday traditions to the first Thanksgiving. Try your hand at grinding corn and spinning yarn. Make your own Thanksgiving centerpiece craft.

(*Activities are most appropriate to younger students: K-5. A study room and board/card games will be available for the teens to hang out and socialize. The craft is for all ages.)
