Kite Day at the Turin Park!
Young and old are invited to join us at the Turin Park on Friday, April 21st at 4:00 to celebrate Earth Day. We’ll have lots of fun flying kites, there is always PLENTY of wind, and there will be some extras to borrow if you don’t have one.
“All Together Now” for the Summer Reading Theme
We are very excited for this summer’s reading program. The theme is “All Together Now” and we are enjoying thinking of ways that we are “all coming together”! We are including coming together for the earth, the rainforest, recycling, gardening, music, and even some square dancing for young and old! Check our Events Page and Facebook for more details on the fun we have planned for the summer.
Fun at the South Lewis Art Show!
We had some great Rubberband Racers!
Don’t forget about our wonderful STEM kits we always have available to use. We have build-it kits, giant puzzles, a microscope, robobee, problem solvers, chain reactions, Legos, trains, marble drops, etc. The list goes on and on! If you don’t see what you want, just ask and we’ll get it out and help you get started.

The very old “pencil main” that was accidently happened upon when the village was digging the water pipes, has been officially “aged”! Dr. Alexander K. Stewart from St. Lawrence University’s Geology Department has sent a letter with results from his studies. “The tree that was used to make the wooden watermain was cut between September 1881 – spring of 1882. The tree was native to Turin and is a red pine. The tree had 61 growth rings on it minus the center that was carved out, so it dates back to 175-180 years of age. The tree would have germinated sometime around 1800.” Thank you very much to Mike Petersen for the wonderful hemlock mantle he created to hold our “old treasure”!
We have received our first bench from the Trex Recycling Program. It is very nice, and we are already well on to earning another, so keep those unrecyclable plastics coming!
We are working on a date for our next Open Mic Night. These used to be very popular, and since covid restrictions are lessened, we want to start it up again!

The Summer Reading Program was a success! Thank you VERY much to the parents and helpers that made sure to get the kids here and encouraged them to read. The challenge was for us all to read 10,000 minutes in a five week period, and they met the challenge with a whopping 10,440!! Way to go!! We ended with a fun Party in the Park, check out our review video!
