Curious GLADL

@ the Library & ONLINE all the time -- Experiments, Crafts, Stories & More!

Looking for stories, something fun, something crafty, something science or STEAM!  We’ll share projects that you can do at home with simple items to learn something new today — because everybody should always be CURIOUS!  We love making crafts and telling stories.  Crafts are a great way to spark imaginations and creativity and a great way to encourage storytelling.  Cultures around the world express themselves in their crafts and stories and we hope we can share some of their stories with you too!  Great source for SCIENCE & LITERACY activities to complete your school day.

Myths & Legends

We started exploring “Myths & Legends” this summer and found that there is so much more to discover.  Join Mrs. Fellows to hear stories about Wizards, Dwarfs, Zeus, Odin, Mowgli, and more!  Mrs. Fellows will introduce us to new classics and old.   Take a tour of myth & legends and check out an ebook, audiobook, or a print copy from your library today!

More Storytimes & Book Features

Join us for some our favorite books and songs; more are being added all the time — From germs to space to all things STEAM!  Want to hear about some of our latest additions to our Children’s Collection — Join Ms. Carol for her next Book Features. 

GLAD-Libs!

Everybody like to get silly! Giggle, grin and fill in the blanks to make your very own, very silly story! Pick up download our “GLAD-Libs Silly Story Sheet” and have some fun being super silly and creative!

When your story is done, bring it in or send us a picture to gladlprogramming@gmail.com or fill out our online form — we would love to share the Silliness!
