Email notifications are only sent once a day, and only if there are new matching items.
Ripon Public Library announced its November 2022 lineup of special events for all ages.
Due to funding from the Friends of the library, events and special offerings are free. Registration isn’t required unless noted.
Welcome to active learning and fun, where early literacy and STEM concepts come to life through stories, music, movement and enrichment activities.
Storytime, which takes place Wednesdays Nov. 9 to 30 and Saturday, Nov. 26, is designed to be a happy place for kids and caregivers to learn and play.
As cooler weather settles in, November Storytime themes focus on creating indoor activities to keep kids happy and active.
Attendees may stay and play in the Romper Room after Storytime. This active space allows kids to release excess energy and advance their physical skills, while supporting social connections for adults and children.
Visit the checkout desk starting Monday, Nov. 7 to pick up a gratitude craft take and make.
This kit will provide supplies to make a bucket of gratitude. It is available for all ages while supplies last.
Come “Be the Light” Saturday, Nov. 12 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. during this outdoor celebration of community, kindness and the human spirit.
Attendees may enjoy a campfire, cookies, warm beverages, a lantern-lit walk on the Northwest Trail and a glow-in-the-dark rock art project with artist Carissa Sorensen. Integrity Lawn Service and Supply donated the rocks.
Attendees should dress for the weather and bring their own chairs or blankets. In case of inclement weather, which includes rain or a windchill-factored temperature at or below 20 degrees Fahrenheit, the event will move indoors. As the day approaches check for updates on the library’s website or social media platforms.
Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 1, Sorensen’s original “Be the Light” artwork will fill one window in the library’s front entry.
Visitors may post inspirational messages here before and during the event.
“This an opportunity to celebrate Ripon and the many people who make it great by working for and focusing on the good no matter how small the gesture,” according to the Ripon Public Library.
A variety of board games will be available for adults to play Wednesday, Nov. 16 at 6 p.m.
There is no need to know how to play them as staff will be on hand to teach the games.
Pinterest Craft Club is getting crafty with buttons this month.
Adult crafters will have an opportunity to make button art in frames Thursday, Nov. 17 at 6 p.m. All supplies needed for the craft will be provided.
Registration required. Call or visit the library to register.
The event date has been shifted from its usual schedule as a result of the Thanksgiving holiday.
Ever wanted to jump into the virtual world of a game?
It’s possible Saturday, Nov. 19 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. during the Teen VR Game Day.
Teens will have the chance to play on an Oculus VR headset.
Snacks will also be provided.
Registration and waiver signed by a parent or guardian is required. Participants may call the library at 920-748-6160 to register, and the required waiver must be filled out in-person at the front desk prior to participation.
Romper Room: Physical activity and human connections are important for healthy, happy human beings, and the Romper Room facilitates both.
Focusing on active play, the room features a trike and trailer, foot-to-floor vehicles, a balance bike, tunnels, tumbling mats, balance beams and more.
The Romper Room is most engaging for ages 2 to 6 years, though older kids are welcome.
The Romper Room is open during regular library hours.
Drop-ins are welcome, though reserving a specific play time with family and friends assures availability.
Monday Matinees: Enjoy a newly released or classic film on the big screen Mondays at 2 p.m. For movie title and rating, call the library or check the website.
For more information, call 920-748-6160, visit the library’s website or follow Ripon Public Library on Facebook and Instagram for the latest library news and information on programs and resources.
