Kohl’s Wild Th
Monday, Jul. 26, 10:00 a.m.
As the sun sets over the Wisconsin woods, a rowdy band of scouts gather for the nightly meeting of the Silly Scary Stories Club. Audiences will assist the storytellers as they strive to outdo their friends and weave the creepiest yarn around the campfire. But which tale will be the scariest: the kid who threw trash on the ground, the bodybuilders who wasted food, or the royal badger and his selfish king? “Reduce, reuse, and recycle” are the lessons at the heart of this family-friendly variety show. Performance Length: 30 minutes. Sponsored by Burlington Public Library.
Diamond Painting
Monday, Jul. 26, 4:00 p.m.
Diamond painting is a combination of cross-stitch and paint-by-numbers. You will be using an applicator to apply hundreds of sparkling resin rhinestones, one-by-one, on an adhesive color-coded canvas painting. The end result is a vivid, shimmering work of art.
Adults may pair up with a family member or friend that is over 12 years old for this program. Sessions are 1-2 hours long. Your painting will be stored at the library. You will be able to take your painting home when completed.
Join us starting July 26th, Monday's 4pm-6pm until your painting is completed. Feel free to bring your favorite beverage and a snack!
Monday, Jul. 26, 6:00 PM
Teens will be given prompts to write about and then share with fellow teen writers.  The library will provide teens with a notebook and the prompt, which are available to pick up at the checkout desk.  Meeting will be held via Zoom.
Zentangle: Relaxing
Monday, Jul. 26, 6pm-7:00pm

Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns called ‘tangles’. You create tangles with combination of dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves and orbs. These patterns are drawn on small pieces of paper “tiles” that you can assemble into mosaics.

This is a meditative art form for the artist and non- artist alike. Please bring a beverage and a snack if you would like. We will be meeting downstairs so participants will need to be able to go up and down the stairs. Paper and pens provided.
