Weekly Programs



Crochet Crusaders

Tuesdays: 1:30 - 2:30 PM - June 18 - July 30 |  Register here.

Want to get started crocheting or just share what you are crocheting with others?

Join our crocheting circle for new and intermediate crocheters! Drop in for all or some of the circle meetings. 

At each Crochet Crusaders, we will have the supplies and materials needed for you to crochet a beginner-level project. If you are an experienced crocheter you can make multiples of the projects or bring your own work from home. 

It's a fun way to learn or expand your crochet skills, and meet and talk with fellow crocheters! Teen Crocheter and OWL Senior Shelver Yusra El Khalfi will lead the group. Registration is suggested to help us plan for supplies.

 

Here is our schedule for planned projects:

* June 18: Vinyl Coaster
* June 25: Flower Coaster
* July 2: Butterfly Chain
* July 9: Sprout Bookmark
* July 16: Kitty Charm
* July 23: Frog Charm
* July 30: Easy Stingray

 
Yusra El Khalfi is the Senior Teen Shelver and Assistant at Oliver Wolcott Library. She has a passion for crocheting and has even designed some of her own projects. 

 

 


LEGO Club: Teen Session

Fridays at 3:30 PM - June 21 - August 9 |  Register here.

Do you love LEGO?! Come to OWL on Friday afternoons all summer long for LEGO Club! We will have a theme or prompt to direct your build. Registration is appreciated.

 

 

 

 

 

OWL's YA & Children's Audio Program



Do you love listening to audiobooks but no longer have access to a CD player?

 

We can help! Check out one of our 5 circulating CD players and receive a free pair of earbuds and a retro prize from our 90s time capsule! You will also receive a prize for any Juvenile or Young Adult CD audiobooks that you check out. Prizes include koosh balls, mini troll dolls, and slap bracelets all harkening back to the decade when portable CD players were all the rage.
