So. Much. Happening. At the library

31 Oct

Every once in a while I get an email or two from my friend Laureen over at the Webster Public Library, packed with listing of adult and youth events that are coming up over the next several weeks. I tell myself EVERY SINGLE TIME that I can’t possibly write about ALL of them.

And then I look more closely and see that they’re all really fun and creative programs that just need to be shared.

So here’s the latest batch. (At least most of them.)

Halloween party

If your kids aren’t totally sick of Halloween yet, the library has one more chance for them to celebrate, at their Halloween Party tomorrow, Friday Nov. 1.

Youths in grades 4-12 are invited from 7 to 8:30 p.m. for snacks, crafts, games, a costume contest, and more. Registration is required. Click here to do that.

Ever wonder what the library is like after it’s closed? Find out for yourself at an after-hours camp-out, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday Nov. 15.

Bring pillows, blankets, and flashlights to build a fort and read together in the library at night. Library staff members will build a fire for your campsite, and have stories and s’mores for everyone.

Families are welcome. Registration is required. (Just once per family is fine.)

Breadtime stories

Kindness changes everything. That’s the theme of a unique story-time program by Chet Fery, the founder of an organization called Bread Time Stories and More.

Often called “The Bread Man,” Chet Fery began his hobby of baking and giving away bread more than 17 years ago. He promotes random acts of kindness, and believes the world can be changed “one loaf at a time; one act of kindness at a time.”

He estimates that he has given away more than 90,000 loaves of bread, created over 50 recipes, and generated more than 100 inspirational “Bread Time Stories” which he shares with audiences across the region.

At the program, Chet will share some of his Bread Time stories, conduct a bread-making lesson and provide each audience member with a loaf of bread and a recipe to take home.

Registration is required. Call 585-872-7075 and press 3 for the reference desk, or visit the Events & Classes listings on the library website. This program is part of the Healthy Living at Your Library series.

Got your flu shot yet?

You should. It’s important, if not just for you, but for those around you whose health may be compromised.

The Webster Public Library will team up with Wegmans to offer a flu clinic on Tuesday Nov. 5 (election day) from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Bring your insurance card.

The Webster Art Club Annual Art Show will begin at the library this Saturday afternoon, Nov. 2. The opening reception and awards will run from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

The Webster Public Library is located at 980 Ridge Rd., at the back of the plaza, along Van Ingen Dr.
