Library activity

Corinth Librarian Cody Daniel shows some of the November activity packet materials to eight-year-old Cole Hare.

While the doors remain closed, the Corinth Library is still offering fun things to check out.

Branches of the Northeast Regional Library continue to offer monthly activity packets for kids, with the latest including the craft makings for a Thanksgiving turkey, cornucopia and confetti corn. The library is also offering a new set of coloring sheets for adults and teens.

It is a means for the library to stay engaged with the public during the pandemic.

“The response to our October packet giveaway far exceeded what we had expected,” said Regional Library Director Dee Hare. “We had to send extra supplies to most of our branches after the first week or two so that they could keep up with the demand. All together, we gave away over 900 packets or adult coloring sheet bundles.”

The free children’s packets also including coloring sheets, game ideas and suggested reading lists.

“We had over a hundred people taking advantage of our Halloween packet activities here at Corinth,” said Librarian Cody Daniel.

The packets are available for pick-up at curbside by calling the library.

Patrons are able to check out materials and pick them up curbside, and they can also call the library to request services such as fax and photocopies and computer access.
