In accordance with the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order, Royalton Memorial Library will be closed to the public and all programs canceled until further notice.

Activity Packets every Thursday

Here Comes the Sun!

A take-home activity packet for kids will be available for pick-up at the front of the library, beginning at noon on Thursday, March 26. This week’s theme is sunflowers and comes with:

  • all the supplies needed to plant your own sunflower!
  • sunflower fact sheet
  • a sunflower word search and maze
  • a paper sunflower DIY craft 

The activities can be adapted to most grade levels from K-6. The library will offer a different themed project every Thursday while the library is closed. Packets are on a first-come, first-serve basis, while supplies last. Please take one package per child. 

Note: We are trying this out for the first time. If the bin is empty when you come by, please leave a note or email pam@royaltonlibrary.org so we can better plan how many packets to provide each week.

You can also download the printable materials each week from our Activity Packets page.

Little Blue is Back!

While we are closed please help yourself to a free book. We are stocking our “Little Blue” wagon with adult and children’s books from our boxes of stored books.

You’ll find “Little Blue” at the front entrance of the library. Disposable gloves to use while handling the books are in the wagon.
