Adult Crafternoon Print
Active ImageCalling all crafty people — and even those not so crafty but who just want to have some free fun.

Creative adults are invited to join us at the library for our monthly Adult Crafternoon designed just for you. We meet at 1 p.m. on a Wednesday afternoon each month in the meeting room and make a different craft each time.

Attendees on Dec. 13 will have the opportunity to make a Rustic Holiday Tree. All supplies — and instruction — will be provided.

Please plan to join us each month. And if you have any ideas for upcoming crafts, please contact Adult Services Coordinator Amanda Johnson with your suggestion.

Help Find Max Print
Active Image If you visit the library in December — and you are under 13 years of age — you can help us find Max.

Around this time every year, the Grinch's dog seems to get lost somewhere in the library. So, we really need your help to find him.

If you find Max, just point him out to a library staff member, and you will receive a reward.

Monday Night Movies Print
Active Image Get in the holiday mood with our next Monday Night Movie, The Muppet Christmas Carol, on Dec. 11.

The Disney classic will begin at 5 p.m. in the library meeting room.

The free family-oriented movie showings also include free pizza, popcorn and drinks.

Join the furry, funny creatures as they retell the Charles Dickens tale in which miser Ebenezer Scrooge learns the true meaning of Christmas and reforms his heartless and money-grubbing ways after being visited on Christmas Eve by four ghosts.

For more information, visit the library or call 937.783.3585.

Adult Take-and-Make Print
Active ImagePrepare for the holidays by creating your own Cinnamon Stick Ornament for this month's Take-and-Make.

Each Take-and-Make bag includes a cinnamon stick already prepared with a star and a hanging string, plus three strips of fabric. You also will need a pair of scissors.

Visit the library and grab a free bag, which also includes detailed instructions.

These will be available through Christmas.

Library Board position open Print
Active ImageThe Board of Trustees of the Blanchester Public Library invites anyone interested in filling an open position on the Board to indicate their interest to Director Chris Owens by January 3.

The Board was created by state law to act as the governing body of the library and consists of seven members, who each serve 7-year terms. Six of the members must reside within the Blanchester Local School District.

This opening does require residency within the school district.

The Board currently meets at 9:45 a.m. on the first Thursday of each month in the library meeting room. Board members are expected to make a commitment to active participation and consistent attendance.
