Cossitt Friends Programs
Summer Reading Clubs
The hazy lazy days of summer are here. What better way to relax than to treat your family to the good reads found at Cossitt Library while enjoying ice tea or lemonade, courtesy of the Friends. They offer Summer of the Readasaurus Club for elementary students and old friend Curious George’s Read-To-Me Club for younger patrons. There are no meetings. Children may join any time and bring a friend. The clubs conclude with George’s lawn picnic and a sundae party for older club members, family and friends.
Children ages 4 to 8 are invited to Fun With Dinosaurs on Saturday, June 28, 11 a.m. Learn about dinosaurs, what their world was like, why they disappeared and end with a craft. Please register, 860-653-8958.
Tie Dye Party
Everyone’s welcome Saturday, July 12, 1 p.m. (rain date July 19). This is the Friends most popular program. Thanks go to Linda Jean Ervin for her 12th year. Bring 100 percent cotton items to dye and wear old clothes. It’s messy fun.
Terrariums are back! Join the Friends on Saturday, Aug. 2, 3:30 p.m. and create a beautiful centerpiece. For ages 8 to adult. Supplies are courtesy of the Friends. Limited, so please register.
A fun time for little folks to create while Mom checks out Cossitt’s best sellers, summer magazines, new DVDs, etc.
