MIDDLETOWN — The Middletown Public Library has announced programming for the autumn session. Adult and children's programs are open to the public.
Adults programs include:
-- Knit-Witts: For adults who like to visit while they knit. This loosely structured class meets 6 to 8 p.m. Mondays. Bring the latest project and join in the fun. Patron Lynda Wilkinson leads this class.
-- Adult Book Club: Join in with other readers who love to talk about books. This group, headed by staffer Phil Carson, meets at 6:30 p.m. on the last Thursday of the month.
-- Computer classes: This is an excellent resource for adults who feel forced into the computer age. Retired SHS teacher Jane Young teaches several series in a small setting, including Beginning Computer, Word, Excel, Power Point, and Scrapbooking. Classes include four sessions. Cost is $10.
For children, the library offers several programs for the fall semester (September through December).
-- Pajama Story Time: Children are invited to wear pajamas and bring their favorite bedtime blanket or stuffed animal as they listen to several pre-bedtime stories. Milk and cookies are served. Registration is not needed. This program meets the first Tuesday of each month, 7 to 7:30 and is led by staffer Sally Mills.
-- Story Time: A gentle introduction to a classroom setting for preschoolers who are potty trained. It meets each Wednesday. Classes are at 10:30 a.m. or 1 p.m. and are led by staffers Linda Jones and Sally Mills. Activities include Play-Doh, stories, art, and snacks. Registration is required.
-- The Adventure Zone: Much more than just a book club for elementary school-aged children, the Zone includes classic literature, art, drama, and community outreach. It meets Monday from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Registration is required.
-- LEGO Club: Started this past spring, this club has been a huge success. The library supplies all Legos and a building topic for each session. It will meet on the first Saturday of the month from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Another session will be added on the third Saturday of the month if necessary. Registration is required.
