Upcoming Programs

Pumpkin Decorating Contest!

Ages 10-18

 

Happy fall! Help us decorate the Library for the season, and maybe win a prize too!

 

Pick up your pumpkin Oct. 1-3. Have fun decorating it, and return it to the Library by October 15. Pumpkins will be displayed through October 31 at the 12 Mile location for viewing and voting via an online form. Winners will be announced at our VR Hallo(t/w)een on October 30!

 

Rules:

Do not carve or puncture your pumpkin; we want them to last all month! Glue, tape, and paint are all acceptable.

Give your work of art a name! We will use this to help with voting.

Every person can only vote once. Voting will be held using an online form that can be accessed both within and outside the Library.

Details for picking up and returning your pumpkin will be emailed at the end of September.

 

Registration is required so that we can buy enough pumpkins for everyone!

Healthy U: Laughter is the Best Medicine

Ages 10-18

 

Yes, we know it sounds hokey, but we had so much fun with this at our September hang out that we wanted to do it again!

 

Part Apples to Apples, part Wrong Answers Only, and entirely hilarious, we’ll play a game combining classic riddles and entirely made-up answers – and then vote for which one takes the crown! Bring a blanket or camping chair, wear a mask, and be ready to laugh!

 

We will meet outside at the 12 Mile location. Weather permitting; please register so that we can email you if circumstances change.

 

Registration is recommended, but drop-ins are welcome.

Calling all teens (grades 6-12) who are willing to help plan programs for their peers, step up social media interaction, and make the teen areas of the two branches the best they can be. This is a great opportunity for volunteer hours as well as learning skills that will be useful in the future. Oh, and we’re also pretty sure it will be fun…

 

We will be meeting in person outdoors at the Liberty St. location, weather permitting, or on Zoom. Please register so we can email you an invitation!

ARTober!

 

Calling all artists! However you create (write, draw, take a picture, model with clay, etc.), we’re challenging you to an ARTistic October!

 

Every day in October we’ll post a word on our @fclteenscene social media accounts – something to do with fall, the Library, or the Farmington community. Use that word to prompt creativity, and if you want, post it on social media with the hashtag #FCLArtober2020 and tag us so we can see!

Teens’ Top Ten

 

There are a lot of great awards out there for books, but the Teens’ Top Ten is the only exclusively teen-driven award! Teen book groups select a list of 25 great books from the previous year, and then teens around the country – including you! – vote for which books should make it to the Top Ten.

 

The list is now available. Most books are available in-library or through our online resources: CloudLibrary, Hoopla, and Overdrive. Vote now through October 15!

The Library buildings are OPEN!

 

Curbside service for hold pickup is still available, if you’d like!

 

New books for all ages are coming in; check our social media accounts for teasers and recommendations! Place books on hold through the Library catalog or through our Teen Readers’ Advisory service!

 

Curbside pickup and in-library visits are available 12-6 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays; and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturdays. See how-tos and more details here.

 

FCL is fine-free!

 

The Farmington Community Library is no longer charging overdue fines! If you need to keep a book or movie a few extra days, or you can’t get to the Library right on time, that’s absolutely okay; we won’t charge you. We just want the book or item back so someone else can enjoy it!

 

Please don’t feel like you have to hurry to return things, especially if you or any member of your household is feeling unwell. We’d like to keep everyone as healthy as possible!

 

For more information on FCL’s Fine-Free Policy, visit our information page.

 

Digital Delights

 

Don’t forget that we have lots of online resources available! We have e-books, e-audiobooks, streaming media, and e-magazines available 24\7. You can find a list of our available apps at www.farmlib.org/digital-library. And if you’re in the mood to learn things, check out Gale Courses and all of our great databases! A Farmington Community Library card is needed to access all digital materials; if you have a card with a different library, check their website for similar resources!
