Storytime moves to evenings

ABC blocksA-B-C Fun moves to 6:30pm on the third Tuesday of the month beginning October 18. This 30-minute storytime features activities, books, and crafts for ages 3, 4, and 5.

Each storytime usually includes a song, read-alouds with a common theme, and a simple craft. The theme for October is Fall. To sign your child up, call 463-3950, email read@parispubliclibrary.org, or stop in so we will know how many craft materials to prepare. You may sign up for a single session or for October, November, and December.

A-B-C Fun will continue in February through April.

NEW! Text alerts for library programs and events

Paris Public Library is now using Remind, a text messaging service, to announce programs, closings, and events. This is a separate service from the SHARE text messaging already offered to remind you of items on hold or due.

Sign up by texting @pari to 81010 or to 217-903-3462. Remind began as a service for schools so you may be asked if you are a teacher, parent, or child. (It doesn’t really matter which one you choose.) We will not overwhelm you with texts – 1 or 2 a week at the most.

Adult Coloring Night

Crayones de cera

Why should kids have all the fun?  Adult Coloring Night is now a regularly scheduled event on the second Thursday of each month. Join us 6:00-7:30pm that evening in the library’s meeting room . Colored pencils and coloring pages will be furnished, but you are welcome to bring your own.
