What is Grandparents Got Game!...??

Dear Circ,

My granddaughter is coming to stay with me! I can't wait, she's as cute as a button. But it's been quite a few years since I had a little girl around the house, and I've got to find some fun things for us to do. I've got baby pygmy goats, and I think she'll like them. I've got some ideas about other things we can do, but there may be some empty hours if I don't think up some more. I don't want her summer to drag, and have her leave thinking visiting Grandpa is a chore.

I asked my pinochle buddies if they had any thoughts, and they were not a fountain of good ideas. Teaching her to gamble at cards may not be an activity of which her parents would approve. But one guy did suggest that I ask you. He said you folks at the library are very smart about kids. So what do you think? Do you have any ideas for things that this old goat and his granddaughter could do together?


Dear Gramps,

Well, the library is filled with all sorts of great summer activities for kids. We've got Science Kits, and story times, craft programs and summer reading, we are a fountain of good ideas!

But we have one very special program that would fit the bill perfectly. We call it Grandparents Got Game! It's designed for grandparents and grandkids to spend time and play together! It meets every Wednesday from 1:30 - 3:00 pm, from June 14 through August 9 (except July 5). Each Wednesday, grandparents and grandkids play board games, do crafts, projects and activities, and have a snack. The grandparents get to spend time with their grandkids and the kids love it.

The program rocks. It's free, the support for the program is provided by the Friends of the Roselle Public Library, and doesn't require any registration. We hope you come on in and try the program. Bring the grandkid, but you should probably leave the baby goats at home!


Dear Readers,
Are you wondering about the image above? No, these people are not "Dear Circ" and are not employed by the Roselle Public Library. Nor are they patrons of ours. And neither of the people are famous authors. But the image is a publicity photo from a famous movie, and the original story (from which the movie screenplay was adapted) was written by a famous children's author. Place your mouse cursor on the photo for the names of the actors, and the author of the original book. Left click the image for an enlargement.
