By all accounts, October is going to be busy at Perry Memorial Library. Youth Services Director Melody Peters has outlined several programs designed for tweens and teens that could “spark” an interest – pun intended.
Peters said a dozen young people are already registered for the Tuesday, Oct. 10 Electricity program. The hour-long program begins at 4 p.m., she said, and participants will get to learn about how electricity works from a Vance-Granville Community College instructor.
It’ll be a fun time, but it also can be a way for young people to learn about careers, she said.
“Now kids see a real connection,” she said, between education and future job opportunities in the electrical field.
There’s no charge for the event, but contact Peters if you haven’t already registered at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following week’s Survival Skills program will introduce youngsters to the world of crochet. Yep, crochet. They have all the materials and plenty of space, so just show up if you want to learn how to magically pull yarn with a crochet hook to create handcrafted items.
The annual Fall Festival will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 24 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
“Last year was such a great time – we had a great turnout,” Peters said. “We’re excited to do it again.”
Children can come in Halloween costumes if they’d like and can enjoy playing traditional carnival games and craft activities.
