Chocolate fondue. Sewing on a button. Legos.
Not necessarily what you’d associate with a library.
But Melody Peters, youth services director at Perry Memorial Library says all these things – and more – are available for library patrons.
From Mother Goose Story Time on Thursday mornings to Life Hacks sessions, Peters said the library offers something for everyone.
“We use every square inch” of the library, she said. “It’s wonderful.”
The Legos club meets on Thursdays at 4:30 p.m. The Survival Skills class helps participants with things like sewing on a button.
Take the recent Survival Skills session that focused on sewing on a button. One participant took the new-found knowledge and said she was going to go home and sew the hole in her bunny. And not only that, she’d be able to sew the hole in her blanket and even the hole in her mom’s coat. Now that’s a survival skill, taken to the next level.
The library has its own spaces to hold classes like the Survival Skills class, but the adjacent Farm Bureau Room also is a space that community groups can reserve.
“It is certainly a gift to have a room accessible to the community for different programs,” Peters said. “It’s amazing,” Peters said, of the community space.
