Building Days
2 Erie Blvd. Canajoharie
Tuesday, Aug. 20, 10:30 am to 4:30 pm
Throughout the summer on Building Days, we'll experiment with different building toys such as Keva Planks, Magnatiles, and LEGOs. Kids need toys that can help them develop their fine motor skills, sharpen their problem-solving abilities, facilitate creativity and imagination, and improve their hand-eye coordination. One of the toys that can address all of these needs are building toys!

Bring your own materials, or use ours! This free program is open to students and their families and is part of the Canajoharie Library 2019 Summer Reading Program. For more information or to RSVP, call (518) 673-2314 or email Library Director Hannah Stahl at hstahl@mvls.info.

RESCHEDULED: Stuffed
2 Erie Blvd. Canajoharie
Tuesday, Aug. 20, 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Visit the Canajoharie Library & Arkell Museum for a special Story Hour with your favorite stuffed animal friend. We'll start off by making nametags for each of our friends and getting to know them all a little better, then moving into one of the Museum galleries for Story Hour; this special reading time with your stuffed animal will include carefully selected stories to help them get ready for their big overnight adventure. Then, help us tuck our stuffed animal friends in, and all of the humans will head home for the evening. Don't worry, we have the famous "Night Watch" guard to keep an eye on them overnight!

Don't forget to pick them up and hear all the stories of what they did while you were away! Each stuffed animal will go home with a special report card detailing how their overnight went, including some photographs of their late night activities.

This program is free and open for students of all ages. For more information, call (518) 673-2314
