Posted by switham on

It no longer has to be! In partnership with the Friends of the Grafton Public Library and GHS National Honor Society, the Library is pleased to offer childcare for school-age children during the Town Meeting on Monday, February 8th at 7 pm. Childcare will be available right at the Grafton High School so there are no additional stops to make! Crafts, stories, and other fun activities will keep the young ones busy.  Please register your child/children by calling the Library 508-839-4649 or email graftonlibrary.ma@gmail.com

With each class, the children will learn STEM concepts through hands-on activities, engaging stories, music and movement, challenges, and even simple experiments ideal for little hands. Each class will be a fun, learning experience for your little ones!

Silly Science Storytime is a 30 minute program for children ages 3.5-5 years and is held at UniBank (89 Worcester St, Grafton, MA) on the specified Mondays at 10:30 am. Registration is required and limited to 12 participants, while 8 slots are reserved for Grafton residents. Registrants must commit to attending all 5 weeks of the session.

Are you a retired Teacher?

A volunteer is needed to help a 7-year-old understand math concepts.  For 1-2 hours a week you could make a real difference in this child’s present and future education!  The schedule is flexible.  Please contact Susan Leto, Volunteer Coordinator at 508-839-4649 or sleto@cwmars.org

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: OLD SCHOOL Book Sale!

Posted by switham on

Author Jeff Kinney is back with another story about our favorite character Greg Heffley!

Summary: Life was better in the old days. Or was it? That’s the question Greg Heffley is asking as his town voluntarily unplugs and goes electronics-free. But modern life has its conveniences, and Greg isn’t cut out for an old-fashioned world. With tension building inside and outside the Heffley home, will Greg find a way to survive? Or is going “old school” just too hard for a kid like Greg?

Buy your copy for $10 at the Grafton Public Library while supplies last. Get a great book and support your Library!
