September happenings at the library

September is National Library Card Sign Up Month. Not only is this the perfect month to get your library card, but the Powell Library has plenty of activities to keep you busy. To help celebrate, the Powell Library is offering a free book to anyone who signs up for a library card or brings in someone to get a new library card.

For the kids, join Ms. Renee at Baby and Toddler Time every Monday & Thursday from 10:30-11 a.m. Bring the little ones for nursery rhymes, songs, play and early literacy activities. Ms. Renee does a fabulous Storytime every Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:30-11 a.m. Stop by for wonderful stories, movement, crafts and fun. The library will also be offering Sensory Play Time for babies and toddlers on Friday, Sept. 24, at 10 a.m. — a great chance for little ones to explore and adults to connect.

Kids can sign up for Thursday, Sept. 2 and 30 at 3:30 p.m. to Read to a Dog. This is a wonderful chance for kids to practice reading to the best kind of listener. 

Lego Club for grades K-5 will be Wednesday, Sept. 8 and 22 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Kids from kindergarten through fifth grade join us on Wednesday, Sept. 29 at 3:30 p.m. for a roller coaster design program, where you can build your own pint-sized roller coaster. Powell Library is offering an Afternoon Book Discussion Group on Tuesday, Sept. 7 at 2 p.m. and will be discussing “All This Could Be Yours.” The Evening Book Discussion Group will be discussing “Where the Crawdads Sing” on Thursday, Sept. 9 at 6:30 p.m. Stop by the library to pick up a copy of the book.

All Park County Libraries will be honoring the 20th anniversary of 9/11, with displays and special screening of movies commemorating this tragic day in America’s history. The Powell Library will be showing 9/11-themed movies on Friday, Sept. 10 at 2 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 11 at 10 a.m.

The adult craft program this month will be leaf imprinting. Join us on Tuesday, Sept. 21 at 2 p.m.

Stop by and visit the Park County Library table at the Paint the Town Red on Friday, Sept. 10 and Homesteader Days on Sept. 11 for fun crafts, games and information. The Powell Library will be a familiar face at the Farmers’ Market; stop by and say hi every Monday from 4:30-6:30 p.m. We will be there to answer questions and provide fun and information about the library.

As always, stop by on Saturday, Sept. 11 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and every Thursday from 1-3 p.m. for the Friends Book Sale.

The Powell Library wants to hear from you, as we move forward with reimagining the Powell Library and how best the building can reflect the needs of the community. Please stop by the Powell Library, fill out a quick survey and let us know what you would like from a new space. We want to hear from all of you, the community, what you would like from your library space.

(Karen Horner is the executive director of the Park County Library System.)
