Spring Vacation Week Movie Series in the children’s room of Epping’s public library runs from April 23rd through the 27th. Movies including one about puppets (with an ‘M’), a rabbit with drumsticks, penguins in Antarctica, an adventurous small white dog and that boot-wearing cat will be shown in the afternoons at 1:00. Folks coming to the movie are asked to bring a snack to share and a spill-resistant drink. All children must be accompanied by an adult. The Thursday afternoon session of Preschool Storyhour will be canceled during vacation week. Check the website or stop by the library for the schedule.
On Thursday, May 10th at 7 pm J. Dennis Robinson, author of “Strawberry Banke: A Seaport Museum 400 Years in the Making” delivers an interesting and informative program that will also be witty and entertaining. Hosted by the Friends of the Library, this program is made possible by a grant from the NH Humanities Council.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner and the May Pajama Night will celebrate Moms while giving Dads and kids a chance to make a special something for the deserving lady of the house. On Friday, May 11th children from 3 to 8 (and their grown-up chauffeurs) are invited to wear their pajamas to the library for crafts, stories and a scavenger hunt devoted to Mom. Pajama Night begins at 6:30. Participants are asked to bring a snack to share.
