Spalding Memorial Library is open for browsing by appointments. This will be limited to two appointments per half hour, so they ask that you are prompt to your appointment. The computers will not be available for use.
They also request that all patrons wear a CDC recommended mask. They have disposable masks for those who do not have one. The CDC recommends masks that fit properly, snugly around the nose and chin with no large gaps around the sides of the face and masks made of tightly woven fabric. The CDC does not recommend face shields or goggles as a substitute for a mask.
The library will still offer curbside service during their open hours of Monday through Thursday, from noon to 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.; and on Friday and Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. You can call the library to set up your appointment at (570) 888-7117.
Upcoming programs include Pajama Storytime. Put on your comfortable pajamas and join Ms. Jess for stories and songs on Facebook Live. The fun begins on Feb. 23, at 7 p.m. on the Spalding Memorial Library Facebook Page.
Join them every Friday at 10 a.m. for Facebook Live Storytime. The fun begins at 10 a.m. on the Spalding Memorial Library Facebook Page. Grab and Go Storytime Bags are available at the library. Each bag contains crafts and coloring pages that relate to the month’s virtual storytime themes.
Call the library to reserve a free bag for your child. If you need crayons and a glue stick or a scarf and beanbag to dance along with the storytime songs, just let them know.
The library is now introducing their Mystery Craft bags. Miss Jess has been cleaning out the craft closet, and as Forrest Gump says, “You never know what you’re going to get.” Call the Library to reserve your Mystery Craft Bag today.
Design your own marshmallow snowflake, build a mini snowball fight catapult, and perform an exploding snowman experiment. Call the library to reserve a free Snow STEM Kit for your child today.
