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.

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.

Sizzlin’ Summer Activities

Things are heating up at the library! Unfortunately, due to social distancing guidelines, we will not be having in-person programs this summer, but don’t worry! We still have a summer full of reading and fun activities planned just for you!

Reading Logs

Reading logs will be available at both branches beginning June 1st. Once you have your reading log, write down all the library books you read between June 1st and July 18th. If our patrons collectively read 1,500 books, Ms. Stephanie gets a pie to the face! If our patrons read 2,000 books Ms. Stephanie AND Ms. Peggy get pies to the face. If our patrons read 2,500 books, Ms. Stephanie, Ms. Peggy, AND a yet to be determined participant get pies to the face.

But who will be throwing the pies? It could be you! If you read 50 picture books or 15 chapter books, your name will be entered into a drawing for a chance to be a pie thrower!

You can download and print the reading logs for picture books here, chapter books here, and adult books here.

July 18th is the last day to turn in your reading log. Pies will be thrown on July 24th at 10:30 at Aurora and 1:00 at Dillsboro.
