Li­brary Book Nook Have you no­ticed the used Book Nook in the front li­brary which is han­dled by the Friends of the Queen Anne’s County Li­brary? Take a mo­ment next time you are in the li­brary to look it over and maybe select a book.

Made to Play

Come to the li­brary the sec­ond Sun­day in the month from De­cem­ber through Fe­bru­ary (Dec. 9, Jan. 13, Feb. 10) all you young­sters ages 7-11, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. We will have the Nike Com­mu­nity Am­bas­sadors to par­tic­i­pate in team­work games, prob­lem-solv­ing games, and all kinds of move­ment. Sign up to­day for an af­ter­noon of move­ment.

Too many kids in too many places don’t have the op­por­tu­nity to move. There are many rea­sons for this — no money, no space, no pro­grams. Kids aren’t meant to sit still. Nike em­ploy­ees will share their love of sport with kids, get them play­ing and mak­ing a pos­i­tive im­pact in their com­mu­ni­ties.

They are not just get­ting kids to play and move to­day, they are in­spir­ing them to be ac­tive for life. You can sign up to­day at cal­en­dar.qa­cli­brary.org.

Well­ness Wed­nes­day Friends of the Queen Anne’s County Li­brary will be hold­ing an­other Well­ness Wed­nes­day on Dec. 19 from 5 to 7 p.m. with a pro­gram of yoga, health and life­style. This is a free event, but par­tic­i­pants must bring their own mat.

New Book Club

The li­brary will start a new Brown Bag Book Club on Dec. 20 from noon to 1 p.m. The first book to be dis­cussed will be “Lit­tle Fires Ever ywhere” by Ce­lest Ng. Hour of Code

Miss Jen­nie in­vites all young­sters in grades 2-6 for a Minecraft hour of code on Dec. 7 at 3 p.m. This will be a jour­ney through Minecraft with code, us­ing blocks of code to take Steve or Alex on an ad­ven­ture through this Minecraft world. This is an ex­cel­lent in­tro­duc­tion to cod­ing for be­gin­ners.
