Voorheesville Library Notes for Thursday, April 10, 2014

Do you crack up at eggs-tra special stories?  Giggle yourself silly at funny yokes? On  Tuesday, April 15, at 10:15 a.m., at the Voorheesville Public Library you can eggs-plore the many answers to the question, which came first, the chicken or the egg.  Turn your funny side up at this egg-ceptionally egg-citing story time.  Please pre-register for this special kindergarten through second grade story time, or we’ll really have to scramble for supplies.  

Elder care

Are you coming up at that place in your life where you are, or are going to be, responsible for an elderly relative or friend? If so, please join us on Sunday, April 13, from 2 to 4 p.m. Albany Law students in conjunction with the Elder Law Project will be giving a presentation and answering questions on topics such as Medicaid, advance directive documents, and estate planning. If you have questions and need answers, please stop by.

Tween dance party

The library’s got the makings for a great dance party for grades four through six. On Wednesday, April 16, at 7 p.m., we’ll have music, balloons, freeze pops, and glow bracelets.  Come with your friends and show off your best dance moves with Wii’s Just Dance video game. Pre-registration is requested.

Pet care and responsibility

Spring is the time for puppies and kittens! One Wednesday, April 16, at 10:30 a.m., the Animal Protective Foundation will be visiting the library to teach young people about responsible pet care and ownership. The program will include an interactive lesson, an animal-themed craft and some special four-legged visitors. This program is intended for grades three through five, but all are welcome. Please register and bring a donation of paper towels and/or canned dog and cat food for the APF.

T-shirt to tote

Calling all aspiring fashion designers in grade 6 through 12, bring in a used t-shirt and refashion it to a new tote bag, no sewing involved.  On Thursday, April 17, at 6:30 p.m., stop by the library and share your ideas for upcycling old clothes. If you have a project that you’re proud of, bring it, wear it, show it off.  

Tick talk

Please register to join Sara Lyon, from Albany County Department of Health, on Thursday, April 22, at 7 p.m., for a discussion on how to keep yourself, your family, and your pets safe from Lyme disease. Get answers to your questions about disease transmission, avoidance, and more.
