Superhero Saturday

Superhero Saturday on September 6 was a wonderful time!

We had crafts, games, food & visits from some real live superheroes!

Thank you to everyone who participated, especially those who gave blood at the Bloodmobile. If you came, we hope you had a great time.

Here are some photos from the day.

Thank you especially to all of our volunteers who helped us run this event. We couldn't do it without you!

 Our staff got in the superhero action too...

Crafts and activities: 

As part of Library Card Sign Up Month (every September), the American Library Association has provided these word balloons to help you tell us what your library card means to you. Thank you to everyone who submitted! You can see these on display in the library throughout September.

DIY Series: Create a Creation

Welcome to our "Do It Yourself" series from the Apache Junction Public Library. The Youth Department has developed these DIYs to encourage you to take time to interact, bond and encourage your child's development.

We host Create a Creation as a way to expand your child's horizons using nothing more than recycled materials. It's easy to replicate this fun activity at home simply by setting aside items - boxes, scraps, packing material, yarn, and anything else - and then spending some time seeing what you can create from all of it.

For more ideas, click the image below to be taken to a PDF version with information on Create a Creation!
