July/August 2018

Summer fun at the library! 
This summer is a great time to stop in and see what our Makerspace is all about!
Mark Your Calendars!
We are hosting a series of classes offered by Sarah McFadden of Cornell Cooperative Extension, for which we will be sharing more flyers in the near future. Two additional upcoming classes which are scheduled are as follows:
  • September 6 @ 6 PM -- learn about online security
  • September 13 @ 6 PM -- learn about creating an email newsletter
Stay tuned for more details!
Regular Club Meetings:
  • Book Club meets the first Tuesday of every month at 2 PM.
  • LEGO Club meets the first Tuesday of every month at 6:00 PM. 
  • Herbal Study Group meets every other Wednesday at 6:30 PM. Check our calendar for exact dates.
  • Bancroft Library Knitters & Crocheters meet every Tuesday at 6:00 PM for relaxing, chatting, and matter what level you're at. Beginners welcome! 
  • Toddler Read, Sing, and Play happens every Wednesday morning from 10:30-11:00. Bring your toddlers and preschoolers for a fun story time with singing, playing, and art. Story time and activities for the littles means caregivers can socialize!  NOTE: we follow the school calendar with scheduling, so if no school, no story time.
  • Scrabble Club meets every Wednesday from 10 AM until noon.
  • An informal, creative writers' group meets at 6:30 PM the first and third Thursdays of every month. Anyone interested can attend!
  • Chess Club meets every Saturday from 10 AM - 1 PM.
All are welcome! Check our calendar, call the library (518-854-7463) or stop in for details.
