Stevensville’s Library Re-starts Their Live Programs
The COVID-19 restrictions prevented quite a few group events. That was only part of the problem at the North Valley Public Library. For a while, they didn't have a children's and adult event organizer.
With the recent addition of Brian Ballenger at the Stevensville library, everything is getting back to normal...with even more planned. Brian is a certified elementary teacher and is going to emphasize science and learning, along with the books, in the schedule.
The regular children's programs start up this month
Brian is reintroducing:
- Monday at 10:30 a.m. - Mother Goose on the Loose for ages 0-3.
- Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. - Storytime and More for ages 4-5.
- Thursday at 4 p.m. - S.T.E.A.M. Ahead, a science-based program for ages 5-11.
Adult programs return, too
Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. are reserved for Adults:
- May 10 - Feather anatomy and painting.
- May 17 - Weather Basics and Cloud-in-a-jar.
- May 24 - Skulls - anatomy and sketches.
- May 31 - Discussion of the book "A Sand County Almanac" by Aldo Leopold.
Brian is scheduling that final "Literary Tuesday" of each month to always be a book discussion.
Brian is also planning some classes that get the public more "in touch" with the surrounding natural world. He, his wife, and their dog Moose enjoy fishing, exploring the valley and, of course, reading.
Another program the North Valley Public Library is planning is a presentation from Ed Higgins next Wednesday, May 11, for national Law Day 2022. The 6 p.m. speech will be "Toward a More Perfect Union: The Constitution in Times of Change." He will talk about law in general, with specific reference to the Constitution.
