Young adventurers in grades K-6 will delight in mini survival challenges based on Lauren Tarshis’ extremely popular I Survived series. Like Tarshis' young protagonists fighting to survive historical disasters, Fab Friday attendees will find themselves faced with challenges. They might build and test an “unsinkable” Titanic-style ship, create a marshmallow-toothpick structure subjected to the forces akin to those of the San Francisco earthquake, unearth a Lego city buried by Pompeii’s volcanic debris, and more. Even those who haven't read the I Survived books will be eager to get their hands on these disaster challenges!
Bow-wowzers, I hope you have a furry friend to keep you warm this winter! Come celebrate the pets in your life with us. Fabulous Friday: Fur the Love of Pets will take place at three library branches in December in partnership with the Fredericksburg SPCA.
We’ll start with a special lesson from the SPCA on proper pet care and the safest ways to approach dogs you don’t know, then lend a paw in making toys and treats for our furry friends at the local animal shelters. Grades K-6. Just drop in.
Always be yourself.
Unless you can be Batman.
Or his adopted kid.
Join us for the ultimate techno geek and über nerd celebration of the DC Comics superhero with the best technology—the one and only LEGO Batman! Build LEGO creations, solve mysteries, play games, and create Batman-inspired crafts to help save Gotham City. Naturally, costumes are welcome. This is a STEM program for grades K-6.
Channel your inner leprechaun at the library! A St. Patrick's Day celebration for children is not complete without searching for a pot of gold or shaking a shillelagh. We hope you can join us at one of our upcoming special events. We also have some great booklists for further fun, St. Patrick's Day and Stories from the Emerald Isle.
