May events at the Floral Park Library

May events at the Floral Park Library

The Library hit a high “note” last month with the successful Taylor Swift Album Release Party Teen Pop Up. No “torturing” Floral Park teens to attend and collect their Swiftie swag!

This month, the teens can choose a Community Service program, a Teen Craft Takeover for grades 6 – 12 and the monthly meetup of the Baby-sitters Club Book Club featuring Dawn and the Impossible Three.

Children’s May offerings include: Play Hooray with Molly Mouse, A Time for Kids Baby Start and Family Pre-School Hour, Fun with the Pom Pom Queen (grades 3 – 5), and Toddler Time (18 months – Pre-K).

There’s also a Very Hungry Caterpillar Storytime (2.5 years  – Pre-School). For Mother’s Day, a Storycraft and a special Chef’s of d’Future (1st – 5th grades).

Wednesday’s weekly Hybrid Chair Yoga remains a popular program, as does the two-session Spring Jewelry Craft with Cathy Buckley, and the two remaining Mah Jongg sessions.

Empire Safety Council Defensive Driving is May 9th. Registration opens April 21st. This month’s movie matinee is “The Holdovers.”

Booked solid Cinco de Mayo with the Charcuterie Queen promises to be wonderful – and taste full! Dr. Carla Natalucci-Hall offers a talk and tips for Dealing with the Fear of Public Speaking, too.

The wonderful Made with Love Knitting and Crocheting group meets Mondays at 6:30 pm and Wednesdays at 11:00 am. No registration necessary; no formal instruction provided. New members always welcome!

The Library Board meets Thursday, May 16 at 7:30 pm. The public is welcome to attend. Friends of the Floral Park Library Book Club meets Monday, May 6, and the Evening Edition Book Club on May 9.

One-to-one tech help for tablets, smartphones, laptops and Kindles is available for our Floral Park patrons by appointment only ([email protected]). You can also schedule a one-to-one career consultation (résumé review, LinkedIn audit, Interview prep and Job Search advice) with Career Coach ellen o’brien.
