Library Event Rescheduled for Saturday

The Laurens County Library has rescheduled the Library’s American Girl Program from last Thursday, November 14th, when the Laurens Library closed early due to lack of heat. The annual American Girl Party is now set for 10:00 o’clock this Saturday morning, November 23rd.

This year the program is centered on Blaire Wilson – a chef, decorator, chicken wrangler, and this year’s Girl of the Year. Blaire’s story teaches the

importance of staying connected, being creative, and finding balance between technology and real-life connections.

Youth Services Coordinator Caitlin Bellinger said, “This year we’ll be planting mustard seeds.”  This seed starter garden will be planted with vegetables and herbs that can be transplanted to a bigger garden once they reach maturity. Bellinger thanked Verdin’s Too “for eagerly donating soil, seeds, and plants for this program.”

This program will also feature an old favorite – BINGO! Plants donated by Verdin’s Too and books will be given away as prizes and light refreshments will be served. Children of all ages and their caregivers are welcome – as well as their dolls and stuffed friends.

Historical fiction, biographies, films, and other educational materials available through your library provide an entertaining approach to American history that engages young students. In addition to history, the books and materials highlight relevant social issues, provide advice on growing up, and emphasize essential themes such as family, friendship, and ethics.
