The Bethel and Sheldon Branches of Eugene Public Library will offer more events for all ages starting in September, thanks to funding provided by the five year levy approved by City of Eugene voters. All supplies are provided and admission is free.
For children and their grown-ups, the branches will offer a monthly Family Night featuring a new fun activity each time. Family Nights will be held at Sheldon Branch on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m., and at the Bethel Branch on the fourth Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
In September, the Family Night theme is "Stuffies Sleepytime." At Sheldon Branch on Tuesday, September 20, 6:30 p.m. and Bethel Branch on Tuesday, September 27, 6:30 p.m., enjoy stories, songs, and more in your pj’s! Bring teddy bears and other plush companions. Stuffed friends can be left to spend the night at the library; pick them up later with photos of their fun “sleepover.”
Teens are invited to the Bethel and Sheldon Branches on the First Friday of each month at 4:00 p.m. for hands-on workshops featuring arts, crafts, “maker” projects, and more. On September 2, teens will create decorations for school lockers. On October 7, the focus will be on making buttons to wear.
The Bethel and Sheldon Branches will also host a weekly drop-in Coloring Party for Adults on Mondays between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., starting on September 12.
In addition, levy funds will support new events at the Downtown Library this fall. Pajama Storytime will welcome children and their grown-ups on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m., starting on September 13. The new teen Ani-Manga Club will get together on the third Friday of each month at 4:00 p.m., starting on September 16.
