We’re serving up a summer full of fun at the Library! Get ready to create, discover, and learn with our Summer Reading program: Build a Better World. Readers of all ages (even those too young to read by themselves) can participate.

Games are always the highlight of fun by providing entertainment, skill building, and social development for children. Learning games are available for checkout from the Library's Youth Services Department. Games are available for all ages including activities for the whole family.
STEAM Team is our program series for children in grades 4–8. This month we explored Light Painting. Light Painting is a photography technique that is simple with the right tools and gives striking results.
In our program we used iPads and an app that allowed us to manually control the shutter setting on the camera. The shutter of a camera usually opens and closes quickly, like a blinking eye. When we adjusted the settings and dimmed the lights our artists had enough time to draw a picture or create special effects using flashlights.
Fines happen. Whether it's a book that slid under the sofa or a video game that never made it back into the case, many of us owe a dollar or two (or more!) to the Library.
We were so excited to welcome in 2017 with our first week of storytimes! We shared our favorite picture books from last year with a few of our crowd pleasing rhymes and songs.
If you’re like me, you love food. If you’re also like me, you don’t have the budget to eat out all the time. And that got me thinking—how can I become a homemade foodie? I was happy to stumble upon some of the great cooking resources available here at the Library. From online courses to cookbooks (both digital and in print), Helen Plum Library has you covered.
Here are some of the resources for wannabe foodies:

Do you love watching the leaves change colors? Is curling up with a cup of hot chocolate on a snowy day your favorite? Do you wait all year for the lilacs to bloom in Lilica Park? Or do you believe summer is simply the best for a cool dip in the pool?
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” – Anne of Green Gables
At the Helen Plum Library we love Octobers and to celebrate we started a new storytime session reading about Trees. As you look around town you might have seen the leaves changing colors or squirrels running around getting their homes ready for colder weather, all signs Fall is here.
We had some creepy, crawly fun in storytime last week! Check out some of the awesome bug books we read.
