Vacation Week Activities

In addition to our regular weekly story times during school vacation week, the Jesup Memorial Library is hosting two special events. First, on Wednesday, April 19 at 1 p.m. join Liz Cutler of ArtWaves MDI for a mask making program, then on Thursday, April 20 at 1 p.m. there will be a special “Not Just for Little Ones” story time.

Craft your own mask with Artwaves’ Liz Cutler, on Wednesday at 1 p.m. We will use a special mask-making materials to create the mask by making a mold of your face and after it dries, you can decorate it. The mask making material takes a few minutes to dry on your face and you can make either a full-face mask or a half-mask to take home that day.

Then on Thursday at 1 p.m. is our “Not Just for Little Ones” story time. During this Roald Dahl-themed story time, we will read “The Minpins” and then make a snack from “Roald Dahl’s Revolting Recipes” cookbook. This story time is for children ages 8 and older, though younger children who would be able sit through a longer story are invited to come along as well.

For more information on either of these events contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or
