Every Wednesday in Independence from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Valerie Agnello guides 10-12 children in ages from 5 to 12 years old in a fun and educational experience called Adventure Club. The library is filled with laughter and learning. The Adventure Club runs from September through May. They discover stories through jokes and riddles, playing games, participating in hands-on activities and enjoying refreshments. Sometimes the craft projects are snacks.
Technology and science is regularly incorporated in the program. Once the kids watched bird eggs hatch and one youngster commented, "Look, they're naked!" (The baby bird didn't have feathers yet). Through various activities youth went on an imaginary journey to Mexico, second-lined around the brach for Mardi Gras, made a bowl with ice cubes and hot water. The youth especially enjoy playing game. They play dominoes and/or bingo once a month. The bingo games get very competitive with children playing as many as four cards at a time.
The last Adventure Club has ended for now but, will return September 12. and the theme is "Going Global." Youth will visit at seven continents without leaving the library. Don't miss out on the fun!
