School Vacation Excitement!


The Wheeler Memorial Library in Orange will be a very active place during the week of February school vacation. Yes, the library will be closed on Monday February 18th in honor of President’s Day but there will not be a dull moment the rest of the week.

Starting Tuesday, February 19th, at 10:30am magical things will begin to happen as Ed the Wizard comes to Rise and Read Storyhour to share stories and put to use his bag full of tricks that promise both fun and surprise. His visit is made possible by a grant from the Orange Cultural Council which is in turn supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. If you want to make sure you have a seat for this special event, contact the library at 978-544-2495, ext 103.

On Wednesday, February 20th from 4:30-6:00, artist Nina Whalen will begin a 2 part jewelry making class for teens and adults. You may have seen Nina’s jewelry at the North Quabbin Garlic and Arts Festival. All the materials will be provided to make earrings and a necklace, or other creations of your choice. Attendance on both Wednesday and Thursday afternoon is expected. It is The Friends of the Orange Libraries that are providing the funds to make this workshop possible. But the class is limited to 12 participants so call the library to register, 978-544-2495, ext 103.

On Tuesday, February 19th from 2:30-6:00, Dial/Self teen drop in.

On Wednesday, February 20th from 6:30-7:30, Sweet Dreams Storytime with Candy Cross. Come as a family for stories and a craft for all ages.

Thursday, February 21st from 4:30-6:00, jewelry making class continues. You need to have attended the first class in order to come to this one.

Thursday, February 21st from 6:00-8:00, Dial/Self teen drop in.

Saturday, February 23rd from 10:00-12:00, an introductory Middle Eastern Belly Dance class for teens and women of all ages and abilities will be taught by Elizabeth Nett and her troupe. No experience is necessary. Indeed, all that is needed to enjoy the class is a willingness to engage in this mildly aerobic non impact dance. Thanks to the generous offering of this community troupe the class will be free. But space is limited so call the library to register: 978-544-2495, ext 103

February can be the longest short month in New England. Come to the Wheeler Memorial Library to shake off the winter blahs with fine music of all types, entertaining movies, a good book to listen to or read, jewelry making, belly dancing, stories, companionship, magic and more!
