The Gilman Library will be offering
a video game program
on the second Tuesday of each month,
from 3:30 to 4:30 pm.
We will be using the
Nintendo Wii system and
will be playing games such as
Mario Kart, Bowling, and maybe even golf (just to name a few)!
Relax and listen to stories that will be
read out loud by your librarian,
all while building with Legos.
LEGO & Listen is a youth program that will be held one Saturday a month,
from 10:30 to 11:30 am.
It's nice to just kick back, relax, and watch a movie after a long day at school.
Youth Movie Night will be held on one
Tuesday night each month,
starting at 3:30 pm.
Saturday Morning Movie will be a replay of the selection from the After School Movie, for those who
were not able to make it on that date,
would like to re-watch it,
or who would like to enjoy the movie with family and friends!
Saturday Morning Movie will be shown one Saturday a month
and starts at 10:00 am.

If you like pizza and if you like Pokemon, then this may be the program for you! Pizza and Pokemon Pages is a youth group that will meet on the last Tuesday of the month, from 3:30 to 4:30 pm.
We will be reading Pokemon stories and trading cards, all while enjoying pizza. So feel free to bring your Pokemon cards and an appetite.

The schools and libraries CLiF works with are constantly looking for low- or no-cost literacy activities to inspire kids to read and write more. We collect activity ideas and share them with our partners.
