Each Adams County Public Library offers weekly Story Times for young children, special events for teens and adults, and other services including computer help sessions, reference and readers’ advisory services, and more. Visit the Calendar to see upcoming events at your local library.
STEM Saturday is happening all week! Bring your favorite LEGO minifigures or builds, or bring action figures or other favorite small toys, and direct your own stop motion mini-movie. We’ll provide the camera and the software, and you direct and create your masterpiece. We’ll finish up by saving your stop-motion short film to flash drive, or your Google Drive account. Parents and kids can sign up in advance for a 60-minute appointment at your nearest library. If you’d like to work together with a friend, simply sign up for both people. There are no age requirements for this activity. Appointments are available all week during afternoons, evenings, and on Saturday at your local library. The HUE Animation Studio will visit the West Union Library April 2 – 7, the Peebles Library April 9 – 14, the North Adams Library April 16 – 21, and the Manchester Library April 23 – 28.
Join artist and illustrator Donelle Lacy for Teen Art Class at the West Union Library, every other Thursday at 10:30 a.m. Kids ages 10-16 can learn applied drawing and art skills in this hands-on class. Bring pencils, erasers, and sketchbooks, and other art supplies will be provided as needed. Each session, we’ll learn about an artist, a period in art history, or a medium and technique. We’ll practice group projects, and improve our ability to see and create our vision on paper. For more information, call Donelle at 937-544-2591.
