Busy days ahead for George library
From engineering to puppeteering, from books to blocks, this figures to be a busy few weeks at the George branch of the North Central Regional Library.
For starters, picture book author and illustrator Erik Brooks will come to the library July 27 at 4 p.m. to share “a wide range of inspirations and details that can inspire stories and get them on the path to becoming real, live books,” according to a library flyer.
Brooks will create characters with the audience and give children a chance to create their own, as well. If folks aren’t able to be there on July 27, Brooks will also be in Mattawa on July 20 at 10 a.m.; at the Royal City library July 20 at 2 p.m.; in Soap Lake on July 21 at 10:30 a.m.; in Moses Lake on July 21 at 2 p.m.; and in Wenatchee on July 26 at 10:30 a.m.
Then, on Aug. 7 the library will hold “Build Simple Machines,” which will teach children how to build things like catapults, trebuchets and other devices, using plastic interlocking blocks. The program starts at 4 p.m.
If you can’t be there that day, the program will be available Aug. 1 at 10 a.m. in Ephrata and in Royal City Aug. 2 at 1 p.m.
On Aug. 4 puppeteers Colin Miller and Baillee Wilson will put on a puppet show for children and adults alike. The duo, along with a third puppeteer, Christina Locatelli, have been putting on puppet shows for several branches of the NCRL, including Quincy.
The puppeteers will be in Wenatchee on July 20 (2 p.m. and 6 p.m.); Quincy on July 24 (10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.); Ephrata on July 26 (10 a.m.); Moses Lake on July 27 (10:30 a.m.); and Royal City that same day but at 4 p.m.
On Aug. 16 a bilingual outreach program titled Building a Better World/Construye Un Mundo Mejor, which lets children and adults discover stories from all around the world, starts at 4 p.m.
