Event Details


Did you know that February is Love Your Library Month? Libraries across the country participate every year to highlight all of the wonderful items, programs and services the library has to offer. Gunn Memorial Library and Museum will be celebrating on Saturday, February 11 with an array of programs for library lovers of all ages!

Kids ages 10-12 can join Ms. Ashley in the Junior Library from 11am-12pm to play a game of “Kids Create Absurdity.” This fun and unpredictable card game is full of crazy questions and hilarious answers. Some cards even include singing, doing impressions, telling stories or creating your own silly combinations. Complete the Library Scavenger Hunt with the whole family or bring a friend and see just how fun spending time at the library can be!

At 1pm, Ms. Linda will have a variety of games and crafts for little ones. Create a jar of candy hearts, a flamingo pencil topper, or an actual love monster. There will be plenty of pink, red, glitter, and lace to make your creations extra special! If you complete the scavenger hunt you’ll win a special Valentine’s Day treat.

Gunn Library and the Hickory Stick Bookshop have teamed up for our Readopoly Reading Challenge which runs through the end of March. Come share which books you are reading and get recommendations for the remaining challenges! Join Librarians Audra MacLaren and Jessica Zaccagnini for hot cocoa and a book talk on great reads you can use to complete the 2023 Winter Reading Challenge!

While you are here visit the Gunn Museum’s exhibition Washington, Connecticut – An American Story and learn about your community; its history and people. Join the museum curator, Amy Campanaro between 10-2 for tours or just to talk history!
