Each week a different activity or craft will be available for you to pick up and take home to complete at your leisure. Activities will be geared toward preschool and early elementary ages. Available at both libraries on a first-come first-served basis during the weeks of Summer Reading.
Come for a tour of this one-room school house that was built in 1813. Mrs. Burt will read a story and we will do a colonial craft. Parking will be available at a nearby house so plan for a short walk to reach the event. For ages 5 – 12 and registration is required.

We welcome adults and teens to come have fun and learn the incredibly simple, yet incredibly artistic craft of rug hooking! We will gather at the Gales Ferry Community Center 3 Thursdays at 10:30; June 30th, July 14th & July 28th. All materials will be provided and you will be able to take your project home with the tools and work on it in between our meetings to make a beautiful sunflower! When it is complete you can hang it on a wall or it will make a wonderful gift. Even if this is not your first time rug hooking, we welcome you and will be happy to hear about your experiences- but no experience is necessary. So register to make this sign of hope, peace and summer!
What better way to kick off your 4th of July activities than by making a sweet treat while we have a dance party! For ages 5 – 12 and registration is required.
