ABOUT THE LIBRARY

SPECIAL PROGRAMS

Glow-in-the-Dark Party
Friday, October 3, 7 p.m.

The Gleason Public Library will be hosting a Glow-in-the-Dark Party on Friday, October 3 at 7 p.m. on the library lawn. There will be games, competitions, crafts, and snacks for the whole family to enjoy. Make sure to wear white or fluorescent clothing so you can glow too! Please call 978-369-4898 and ask for the Children's Desk or visit the library to register you and your family. Please be aware that the parking lot will be closed, so attendees should plan to park at the Carlisle School.

The Children's Room at the Gleason Public Library offers regular special programs and events throughout the year. These include Sing-Alongs, Performers, and Special Guests. The larger annual events include the Great Pumpkin Spectacle in late October and the Summer Reading Program (late June - early August). Performances and programs are funded by the Friends of the Gleason Public Library, the Cultural Council, and special grants or donations to the Library.

DISPLAY CASE

Calling all Carlisle kids! Do you have a special collection that you would like to share with your friends and the other patrons of the library? Thanks to the Friends of the Gleason Public Library, we have a large display case that we want YOU to use.

Sign up at the Children's desk to fill the case with your special treasures for two weeks. After two weeks, your display comes down and the next one goes up.

Our current exhibit:

Red Sox History, with a hint of A's by Zach Clark

So what do you collect? Your display can be anything you want - Pokemon cards, special toys, something you have made, artwork, coins, stamps, memories from a trip - it's entirely up to you. Call the library at 978-369-4898 if you have any questions. Start getting that collection together, and stop by the Children's desk to make your reservation.
