Youth Services

The Children’s Room is currently closed to the public. Browsing is available by appointment only. However, the library is offering the following services and fun children’s programing all summer long.

Curbside Book Orders

Youth Services librarian Irene Hall has ordered many new titles for 2020. There are a couple of ways to get materials – books, movies, magazines – for kids of all ages. Materials are available for pick-up using our touch-free system at the ground floor entrance.

1) You can go to WML’s website and access your online account.  There, you can browse what’s currently available at our library or order books through the Minerva system.

2) Call or email Irene and request materials.  Specific or general requests, both work. We are happy to help!

Take-and-Make Art Bags

Every Friday, the library will post instructions on its Facebook page for a fun art project to make at home.  Bags of supplies will be available to pick up at the downstairs self-serve cubby.  These projects are suitable for the whole family-younger members may need a little help. No registration required.  Made possible by the Friends of Witherle Library.

Summer Reading Program

Our program will guide you through different types of books and activities.  Please fill out the form provided and return to the library when you have finished.  You don’t have to do every challenge, but the more you complete, the more money you will help raise for the SPCA of Hancock County animal shelter.  All forms should be returned by the end of August.

The summer reading program is now listed in the Beanstack Tracker App. The app can be downloaded from either the iTunes Store or the Google Play Store, and is built specifically for mobile phones.

Be on the lookout this summer for random sightings of Maynard, the Witherle Moose.  He likes to drive around town and look for friends. Check out our Facebook page for more Maynard activities and art challenges all summer.
