Welcome to the Fennville District Library
September Events 2016
September is "Read Like A Pirate" month at Fennville District Library with pirate fun available every day of September. Stop by the lower level during any regular library hours to quest for pirate gold. A variety of activities will be available daily, including making a mini treasure chest or loot bag and using maps to find new books. Patrons will also be able to use pirate photo booth props for group pictures. They can post the pictures on Facebook and tag the library for a chance to win a bag of pirate loot. The library will also have two special activity days. On September 9th from 3:30 pm ~ 5:00 pm, learn how to make a wooden pirate ship play structure. On September 30th at 10:30 am, a pirate story time kicks off the fall preschool story time season. The library's regular knitting and writing groups will also meet in September. Knitting meets September 19th at 1:30 pm. Young Writers (tweens and teens) will meet September 26th from 4:00 pm ~ 5:30 pm and Adult Writers will meet September 26th from 6:00 pm ~ 7:30 pm.
Get ready to go back to school with Fennville District Library's School Supply Reading Program! During the month of August, each time you check out books in the Youth and Teen Department in the Lower Level, you will receive a coupon for a free school supply. After reading one of your books, bring back the coupon and choose a new pen or mechanical pencil, eraser, ruler, notebook or other fun school supplies. One school supply per student per week.
Upcoming this fall: Fennville District Library is excited to launch a new program called 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten. This is an Allegan county-wide program that encourages parents to read 1,000 books to their children during the preschool years. The program comes with fun barnyard theme charts and stickers for each parent. While 1,000 books may sound like a lot, the program is easy to complete. Simply read one book each day to your child for three years, and you will have read more than 1,000 books. Does your child request the same story night after night? That's okay! It all counts! Best of all, reading together offers huge benefits for a successful education when your child begins kindergarten. Look for more details this fall.
