We are so pleased to announce the winners of this year’s tabletop scarecrow contest! Star Witch by Ariana made a full sweep, winning favorite, scariest, and most creative, as well as most original, most frightful, and best details. Others made great showings in the polls, particularly Zobiella/Angel by Allison and Pam Pumpkin by Jade. Please come by the children’s room to pick up your scarecrows and prizes! Every participant gets something!
With holidays and vacations aplenty in December, we have many other reasons to stop in. Thanks to the Friends of WPL, we have the ever-popular Tanglewood Marionettes returning on December 30th with their production of Sleeping Beauty. Be sure to pick up your tickets for either the 1 pm or 3 pm show; they will be available starting on December 16.
What else is going on? Glad you asked! Our final manga workshop of the year will be on December 6. Come hone your drawing skills with comic artist Jamie Buckmaster. We’re reading Carl Hiaasen’s hilarious book Chomp for the M.C.B.A. book club, which will meet on December 11. Due to popular demand, Tuesday Baby Times will continue into December. For older kids (ages 3-5) we have PJ storytime on December 17, and for even older kids we are so pleased that professional storyteller Laura Partridge will lead children ages 5-9 in African Story-Acting on December 7. We also have our annual gingerbread workshop, a royal tea party for princess (and prince!) fans, baby massage and yoga, icky sticky, movies, legos, videogames, and more. Keep an eye on the calendar and on Facebook for more information about upcoming events, or call the children’s room at 508-799-1671.
