Library to host Bookworm Clubs for LES students

The Liberty Public Library will host Bookworm Clubs for elementary students in February and March.

The club will be offered Mondays, Feb. 27 to March 27, or Tuesdays, Feb. 21 to March 28, for children in kindergarten through second grades. The club for third and fourth graders will be Wednesdays, Feb. 22 to March 29, or Thursdays, Feb. 23 to March 30.

They will be held from 2:30 to 4 p.m. afterschool. Library staff will pick children from Liberty Elementary to escort them to the library. Because of Presidents’ Day, the Monday Club will only be five weeks long.

Participating children will read books, play games, have snacks, do crafts and more.

Registration will begin on Monday, Jan. 30, by calling 845-292-6070. Those who call earlier will be asked to call back. Permission slips will be sent home with all children who are registered. Slips must be returned to the library or the child’s teacher indicating pickup preference. Children may be picked up at the library by 4; they can be escorted to the LES Boys & Girls Club, if they are signed up; or they can take the late bus home from the school.

For more information, call 845-292-6070 or visit the library’s website. The library is at 189 N. Main St. in Liberty.
