Toddler TimeToddler Time is typically held on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month at 10AM.  This toddler storytime is  designed for ages 12 to 36 months* and involves the parent/caregiver as well as the child.  Early learning skills are emphasized through songs, rhymes, movement and short stories.  We realize that  children at these ages are just learning to participate in group    activities and that their attention spans are rather short.  Toddler Time is designed with these things in mind, and we expect that toddlers will roam a bit and need to be redirected frequently. 

* Older  siblings are welcome!

Double Wedding Ring QuiltIf you are an avid quilter, or never quilted before but are interested then this may be the group for you.  There are advanced quilters, and beginners alike gathering together to work on individual (and sometimes group) projects.  We are there to help and learn from each other.  

This is an group that is open for all.  Just bring your supplies.  You DO NOT have to register for this event, but if you do so we will be able to add you to the email list.

Currently we meet on the 3rd Sunday of the Month, but a weekday may be added as well.

I liked this book. I read the whole book at one time because of what the author had said. she said that her closet had some of the same things that his closet had and that interested me.  Mattoon SHARECatalog

So amazing! Best book I've read in a loooong time! I love how Patrick Carmen mixes action with a love triangle. This is the first book in a trilogy. I recommend this book to maybe a 6th grader at the least. But if you are younger and more mature that's OK.  Mattoon SHARECatalog

This book is full of hints and tips for playing Minecraft. I knew a lot of the tips from before; but, I'm glad there were some tips that helped me too.   Mattoon SHARECatalog
