FrankenSTEM to be at public library on Thursday

Published 9:48 am Thursday, October 5, 2017

The Youth Services Department of Davie County Public Library has several events this month for families.

On Thursday, Oct. 12 at 6 p.m., Bright Star Theatre Co. will present FrankenSTEM in the multi-purpose room.

“Dr. Frankenstein is intent on bringing his masterpiece to life, but the bumbling doctor just can’t seem to figure everything out. It will be up to the audience and his gritty assistant Igor to use science, technology, engineering and math to bring Dr. Frankenstein’s invention to life. This hilarious tale will spark an interest in STEM subjects through a fun and artistic extravaganza,” says Bright Star’s website.

The show is free and open to the public.

For Halloween, the library will host a book character costume contest, instead of trick or treat. Youth and families are encouraged to dress as characters from their favorite books. Make an effort to bring a copy of the book. There will be three categories; singles in three age groups, pre-kindergarten, elementary ages, and sixth grade or older, pairs and family/friend groups. Enter between 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 31 and entry is free.

Volunteers will photograph the entries, and judges will view the photos the next day to determine the winners of first, second and third prize in each category/age group. Amazon gift cards will be awarded for $25, $15 and $10.

The library hosts free weekly programs like Legos and games on Thursdays from 3:15-5:15.

Read to Ranger is available for appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30-7 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m.-noon.

Story Time is offered on Friday mornings at 11.

On the third Thursday, a Young Adult Readers Club meets from 4-5 p.m. to discuss whatever the participants are reading.

The Next Chapter Book Club meets each Thursday at 1 p.m. in the History Room.
They are reading “The Great Gilly Hopkins” by Katherine Patterson. They hope to view the movie at the last meeting for 2017 on Nov. 30. There is room for new participants. Consult  for more information or Email Miss Julie to reserve an appointment with Ranger at
