Library Lovers Month

Posted by mcneilj on

Here in Massachusetts, we LOVE our Libraries. Massachusetts Libraries play a vital role in ensuring all residents have equal access to information. Libraries are meeting places, community centers, and resources for everyone. During our busy everyday lives, we don’t always get a chance to let our libraries know how much we care about them. And we rarely take the time to share that with our state legislators.

What do you love about the Grafton Public Library ? What critical service does it provide to you or your family? Let us know by uploading a photo or video valentine and we’ll share it with the library community and with the state and local officials.

Dates for these virtual classes are Monday, January 4th, 11th, 25th and Monday, February 1st, 8th, and 22nd.

Register online.

This is an interactive class using Zoom and parents/caregivers are encouraged to help their child. A list of materials for families to prepare for each class will be provided weekly.

Registration will begin two weeks prior to each event. By registering for this event, you are registering for this one event, not the entire six-week program. If the event is full, you may still submit this form to be placed on the waiting list. Attendees on the waiting list will be added to our next session.  A minimum of eight families are required in order for the class to be held. If we do not receive the minimum number of registrants, this event may be canceled. A valid email address is required to register for all Grafton Public Library programs. A Zoom link will be sent to each registrant no later than twenty-four hours before the event is scheduled.   If you are unable to attend, please call the Grafton Public Library at 508-839-4649.

Siblings are welcome. Only one registration is required per family.

The “Young Scientists” series is sponsored by the YMCA Family & Community Partnership (YFCP), which is a Massachusetts Coordinated Family & Community Engagement (CFCE) Grant funded by the Department of Early Education and Care and awarded to the YMCA of Central Massachusetts.

Location: Zoom
