Teens invited to create at DIY Club

The Moore Public Library makes a creative statement through its Teen DIY Club, next meeting at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21, at the library.

Ages 12 to 17 will participate in a variety of craft projects, ranging from sculpting to Zen gardens to Perler beads and more.

All supplies will be provided by the library but are limited in amount, so advance registration is required to participate.

Won’t you be our neighbor? New story time debuts

The Moore Public Library pays homage to a beloved character from the lives of many children in its new special Sunday Story Time: Won’t You Be My Neighbor, debuting at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 5, and continuing at that time on most Sunday afternoons at the library.

The activities are inspired by Mr. Rogers, famous for decades on the television program “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” Each Story Time will feature songs, books and play time with themes including neighbors, pets and transportation.

All ages are welcome to attend and no advance registration is required.

This is one of many story time events scheduled regularly at the library. Age-appropriate activities include Preschool Story Time (10 a.m. Tuesdays, for ages 2 and up); Lapsit Story Time (10 and 10:45 a.m. Wednesdays, for ages 24 months and younger); Pre-K Play (10 a.m. Thursdays, Jan. 9 and 23, for preschool age) and Families Explore (11 a.m. Sundays, Jan. 4 and 18).

Story Time also goes on the road once a month to The Boxcar Coffee, 2100 N. Eastern Ave., typically at 2 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month. (It next takes place on Thursday, Jan. 16.)

And look for another new activity, Zumbini, at 10 a.m. Fridays, Jan. 3 and 17. Geared to ages 5 and under and their caregivers, it combines music, dance and educational tools in a 45-minute activity.

We hope to be part of your plans in the New Year!
