What's Happening @ The Library

A quick listing of some of the things you might see or find at the North Judson-Wayne Township Library.

Haunted House @ the Old North Judson Fire Station

posted Oct 14, 2014, 12:54 PM by North Judson Public Library

Make plans to attend the annual Haunted House in the Old North Judson Fire Station on October 25, 2014.  The event, sponsored by the Friends of the North Judson Library, will have two sessions.  And, as in the past, there will be no admission charge.

The daylight hours of 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. are for young children and the faint of heart.  You don’t have to worry, there won’t be anything too scary. 

But if you think you are brave enough, come visit the Haunted House between the evening hours of 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.  That’s when the Halloween spirits will take charge and anything can happen. 

Oh, by the way, you might want to wear two pairs of socks, just in case you accidently leave one pair behind.  Bwahhhhh ha ha ha ha!

Thank You to the SCYC-NJSP Students

Students at the SCYC-NJSP afterschool program have a weekly You & Me session where they focus on a community service project of their choosing.  Throughout the month of September they chose to make some fun caterpillar bookmarks, encouraging others to read.  

They sent their creative works to the North Judson-Wayne Township Library where their friends would benefit from their creativity. 

The Board and Staff of the North Judson-Wayne Township Library would like to thank all of the students for their thoughtful gift.  We have placed them at the front desk so they are available to anyone who comes into the library.  But if you want to see them in person you better hurry because they probably won’t last long.



Stuffed Animal Overnight September 2014

   Sitting in a circle and getting to know each other.
 Then we went downstairs for craft time.  
.  We had lots of fun.
       
     
  Then it was snack time so we made some popcorn.  
  Clifford read us a story while they got the movie ready for us.
  Movie Time!
We had a short sing-a-long after that.   
    Then we went upstairs for a tour of the library.
 Miss Anna was really glad to see us. 
  We searched for some good books to read...
                                           did a little research...
                                                                    and then checked out some books.
Miss Anna thought we might want to play with the puzzles.    
I really liked this puzzle.
  Then we played a board game.     Can you guess who is winning?
  After that we made a pizza call...
 and while we were waiting we played hide and seek.  
  Bet you can't find me.  
   Shhh, don't tell them I'm up here!
  We tested the copier to see how it worked…  
  rode on the book cart...
and built a blanket tent.   
  Don't think Miss Anna was too happy with us.
When the pizza arrived we had a picnic.  
  It was very good pizza.
Then we settled on the couch to hear another story.   

  We were very tired by then.
  Goodnight, everyone.

Mango Languages Available Through the North Judson-Wayne Township Library

I bet the only reason you haven't tried our new offering is because you don't know if Mango Languages offers the language you want to learn.  Well, here is a listing of all the languages that are currently available on the site.  

Right now I'd be interested in dabbling in Oktoberfest German, Pirate, Spanish for Librarians, and St. Patrick’s Day Irish.  But if you're a serious student or planning a trip to some foreign shores you might be interested in one of the over 60 languages listed.  

Remember, patrons who live in Wayne Township only need the 14 digit barcode from their library card and they can be on their way to learning to speak Chinese, or Farsi, or Greek, or Gaelic or.....
