The Mattapoisett Free Public Library has just extended its hours of operation to include Tuesday nights and Sundays. Patrons are now able to utilize all of the library’s services at these times. This includes placing holds, information requests, and readers advisory by phone along with side-door pick-up. Patrons will continue to be able to place holds online from all SAILS Network Libraries, check out library of things items, access all of the library’s digital content, and return items through the book drops at the side door.
The library is also continuing to offer virtual programming and takeaway kits. These include STEAM Projects to Go, the Story Walks and Craft Kits, Curbside Crafts, Pokemon Virtual Program, Robbin’s Bitty Book Reviews, and much more. Check our website and Facebook page for more information and to stay updated.
Mattapoisett Free Public Library current hours of operation are Tuesday, from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm, Wednesday through Friday, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, Saturday, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, and Sunday, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
Thanks to the funds we received from the Ann and Richard J. Prouty Foundation, Bank of America, N.A., Co-Trustee, we’re offering several S.T.E.A.M. related virtual programs this fall.
First, Pokemon Virtual Program takes place on Saturday, September 19 at 1:00 pm. This is a fun, interactive Zoom program that includes deck building, basic gameplay workshops, and yes, Pokemon SCIENCE that teaches the origins of your favorite Pokemon and their parallels to the living things in our real world. This program is hosted by Mastermind Adventures.
In October we have two programs, Fantastic Fliers by Mad Science on Thursday, October 8 at 3:30 pm and Animal Crossing EDU with Mastermind Adventures on Saturday, October 24 at 1:00 pm. Finally, on Thursday, November 12 at 3:30 pm, Mad Science will host their program titled Good Vibrations. For more information about these programs plus the link to register online is available on our events calendar at www.eventkeeper.com/code/events.cfm?curOrg=MATTAP
All of these programs use the ZOOM meeting app and require internet access. Pre-registration is required so we may send each participant a ZOOM meeting code.
We also have more kits coming with takeaway crafts and STEAM projects. For more information on that and up-coming children’s programs, please visit our website at www.mattapoisettlibrary.org/childrens. If you have any questions, please call the library at 508-758-4171 or email email@example.com.
