In case you missed the latest issue of the O’Fallon Weekly, this week’s column by Youth Services Manager Teri Rankin tells us that we get a bonus visit from the adorable therapy dogs this month. Children will have another opportunity to read to these big-hearted service animals in the Fun and Furry Reading Club Tuesday, August 22, at 3:30 PM. No registration is needed, but if you would like an email reminder visit our website.
Also, Teri reports that the library Eclipse Viewing Party, Monday, August 21, begins at 11:15 AM. We have 175 eclipse viewing glasses given on a first-come, first-receive basis. Bring a blanket and enjoy a Moon Pie on our lawn.
Other future events include celebrating International Dot Day, Sunday, September 17 at 2 PM. Teri reports that this celebration for children 4-years-old and up was established to recognize the importance of creativity and its presence in all of us. Teri said, “Our Dot Day celebration will consist of all things ‘dotty’ and will feature art, games, face painting and snacks.” Please register online or at the library.
You’ll definitely want to mark your calendar for The Incredible Bats Show on Saturday, October 14, at 10:30 AM. Just in time for Halloween, this program includes live Egyptian and African Straw-colored Fruit Bats and an educational multimedia presentation. No registration is required for this event best for 5-year-olds and up.
