Book & Craft Pairing: Sleep & Dream Books with Knotted Fringe Pillows

Pick up a book about sleep or dreams, & get a complete take-home craft kit!

The Hubbard Library Youth Room is offering a monthly book and craft pairing program; check out a book about our theme of the month, and take home everything you need to make an accompanying craft!

This month we're making ultra soft knotted fringe pillows (with no sewing needed), paired with books about sleep and dreams!

After we receive your registration, we will send you a list of available books about the theme. Write back with your selection (or let us know your child's age and ask for a book bundle - 7-10 books on the theme already packaged up by age level) and when you pick your selection up from our curbside delivery service, you'll also get a kit that contains everything you need to make this lovely craft! If you need enough for multiple children, just let us know!

Women's History Month Virtual Event: Suffragettes in Corselettes

6:30pm - 7:30pm

Centennial Tribute to the Suffragettes

For centuries, women have allowed themselves to be squeezed, twisted, and squished to conform to desired shapes. The history of underwear reveals a lot about women’s changing roles in society – how we perceive ourselves, and how we’re viewed by others. The 1910s saw an end to the hourglass figure with a tiny waist. Women were finally able to breathe and move more freely. Did the demise of tightlacing help women gain the right to vote in 1920? Underwear matters.

Tight corseting exerted 22 pounds of pressure on internal organs!

Herstory Unsanitized presentations explore the engrossing “taboo” subjects omitted from history. When a zany teacher and grounded green witch join forces, they create Grounded Goodwife. Velya Jancz-Urban’s gregarious personality and Ehris Urban’s serene energy enable this mother/daughter duo to connect with audiences. Their delivery is funny and frank. Laugh, grimace, and honor our foremothers’ journeys.

VIRTUAL PROGRAM: YA GAMES NIGHT!

 Join Olivia for some awesome virtual gaming (similar to Pictionary, trivia & Mad Libs) through Jackbox games on Steam.

You will need two different screens for this game night (like a laptop and a cell phone, for example), one for Zoom and one for game play, but you don’t need a Jackbox Games account to play. In order to maintain internet safety, we require registration so that we can send you a private link and a password to get into the session, and will send you a new link and password each week.

Please click below to register, & make sure to provide your email address. Our website is currently experiencing some difficulties and you may get an error message after you register, but the registrations are going through; we will call you to let know we got the registration! You will receive an email with a private, secure link to participate via Zoom. If you are using a cell phone, you will need to install the Zoom app, which is free, but if you are using a laptop or desktop computer the link will open without anything needing to be installed.

. For ages 12 & up.
