Max Bergman the Bug Man performed for eighty some children and adults. He brought an amazing collection of “bugs” including several BIG spiders and a giant millipede. He was a great speaker and very responsive to all the questions.
Summer Reading Summaries are still in the works with tallies not completed and prizes still to be collected. But the programs are done for the year. The ant farm has been retired, the bugs are ready to be packed away, and the school bus will soon replace the picnic basket. It’s been hectic; it’s been fun; and it’s time to regroup, give Miss Vicky a vacation, and move on to the next phase.
Teen Night hosted 20 participants who bowled watermelons, jumped through hoops, designed cocoons, and ate sautéed apples and meal worms.
Summer Reading accumulated 1155 hours with 131 children signed up and 51 completing 10 hours of reading - as of July 28.
The Young Adult category was the topic of a recent essay by an author, worried that adults wouldn’t read the book - or take it seriously. Thank goodness librarians get to read and enjoy all book categories. There are some real treasures in the juvenile room including our most popular audios.
Summer Letterbox Adventure, a joint project of Preservation Parks of Delaware County and Delaware County District Library is available to Wornstaff Library patrons. Sign a waiver and get a packet that explores six Delaware County parks and introduces you to letterboxing. We’ll give you bonus points for checking out Wornstaff’s own letterbox. A stamp and a notebook are all you need to add some variety to trips or provide a destination for an evening drive. http://www.letterboxing.org/ gives a good overview and lists letter box sites. This can be a diversion while waiting for that long postponed list of Delaware County mystery picture locations.
