*****ALL GROUP ACTIVITIES AT THE LIBRARY HAVE BEEN CANCELLED FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH & APRIL & MAY*****

Children’s computers

Our library website features plenty of fun activities and entertainment for our kids and teens. Downloadable ebooks, audiobooks and Read Along books can be found on Hoopla, Cloud Library, Overdrive/Libby, and Kanopy Kids. On our SLOCountyLibraries YouTube channel families can find storytimes, crafts to do at home and other entertainment. Also on our website is ABC Mouse which has learning games and activities for children ages 2 to 8. 

Our library Summer Reading, Imagine Your Story, for kids, teens and adults is going online this year. Beanstack, found through the app store or on a banner on our website, will allow participants to register and track their reading – no more paper logs to keep track of! 

The program runs from June 1st to July 31st. All families need to do is create a Beanstack account and register everyone who wishes to participate. Everyone – in-cluding babies, teens, and adults – can join in. Then the logs can be accessed through the free Beanstalk app, available for both iOS and Android devices, or on a computer by linking through the library website. Log reading time to earn badges and certificates! 

There will be prize raffles for kids, teens, and adults. Kids can win a bike, Lego sets and more. Teen prizes include DIY maker kits, bikes, and coffee gift cards. Kids earn tickets for reading and for participating in activities or writing book reviews. 

We will also be hosting great online entertainment and programs such as Roaming Reptiles videos with their creature of the week, concerts with the Super Stolie Guacamole bilingual music and dance show, magic trick lessons, Pyjama Drama classes, mindfulness vide-os, digital photography instruction, craft videos, science videos and more, so check us out! Follow us on Insta-gram, Facebook, and Twitter to learn about new activi-ties and fun summer challenges.

VOLUNTEER

The Friends of the AG Library is an all-volunteer organization with many opportunities to lend a hand, from the Book Sale Team, to persons with unique skills to offer (such as graphic design, merchandising, fund raising), we can use your help! Right now we are in great need of computer savvy volunteers to help scan, post and update pricing for books we sell on Amazon.  We also need sorters for all the wonderful donations we receive and  a few strong backs to help us move flats of books to our storage sheds.  Use the Contact link to let us know you are interested.
