Take It, Make It: Chalk

Beginning June 22, 2020, the second Take It, Make It activity will be available at both branches! Take It, Make It activities are projects that can be done at home with materials you can pick up at the library! You can also request curbside pick up. Just call 812-926-0646 (Aurora) or 812-954-4151 (Dillsboro) and let us know how many of the activities you need for your family!

This week’s activity is sidewalk chalk! Stop by either branch to pick up your chalk to take home. Please ask an adult where the best place is to use your chalk. Use your imagination and create a picture! If you want your creation to be featured on our social media, send a picture to Ms. Stephanie at stephanie@eapld.org. Make sure to include if we have permission to share your picture and name on our socials. Pictures must be submitted by July 11, 2020.

You can download and print the entire summer schedule here, or you can pick one up at either branch.

Haven’t started on your summer reading log yet? That’s okay! There’s still time!  If our patrons collectively read 1,500 books, one lucky patron gets to throw a pie in Ms. Stephanie’s face! You can find more information on reading logs and the pie contest here.
