The Power of SEL Parenting
With Kathleen McClay and Barbara Thomas
Today’s children are living with unprecedented amounts of stress. Social-emotional learning (“SEL”) builds coping mechanisms, grit and resiliency. Studies have revealed an 11-17% increase in standardized test scores and reduced anxiety levels in students. The wonderful news: Parents can teach these skills!
Come learn about SEL through this fun, interactive presentation. You are sure go home with a few ready-to-use tips and techniques for cultivating these skills and empowering your children to reach their fullest potential. This workshop is for parents of children of ages 0 to 18 yrs.
Preserve Your Memorabilia
Digital Preservation Event
The Friends of Kemmerer Library are sponsoring a digital preservation event to help library patrons preserve personal collections of print, photographs, slides and audio-visual material including VHS videos, 8mm and 16mm movies.
The Friends have partnered with Digital Memory Media (a Division of Innovative Document Imaging LLP), a leading provider of digital imaging services to provide preservation services to patrons.
Digital Memory Media advisors will be on hand on Thursday evening to counsel patrons on the best way to digitally preserve their collections. Materials can be brought to the library the day of the session. Once scanned and digitized, patrons will be notified of a date and time to retrieve their material from the Library.

2016 Summer Reading for Kids
Get ready, set, read! Summer Reading Olympics
Every summer, Kemmerer Library sponsors a program for children in grades K through 8, intended to foster a love of reading and emphasizing the importance of reading for pleasure. Click HERE for program rules.
This year’s theme, Get Ready, Set, Read: Summer Reading Olympics, is inspired by the upcoming games in Rio de Janeiro. We are stocking up on Olympics-inspired books, and throughout the summer months, we will be holding fun, interactive programs celebrating sports and the Olympics.
Let the Games Begin: Summer Reading Kick-Off
Pick up your Reading Olympics registration packet and join the Librarians for “Olympic” games on the municipal lawn. A visit by the ice cream truck will get you in the mood to start reading and competing!
Rain date: June 19, 4:30-5:30 p.m.
It’s the Bee’s Knees!
Our honeybees are here!
Pollinators all over the world are in danger of extinction due to pesticide use, habitat loss, and climate change. In collaboration with local beekeepers, Kemmerer Library is doing its small part to protect our honeybees: This spring we established two hives on the municipal campus and will be caring for them all summer long.
Beehive Inspection
Join the beekeepers while they inspect the hives to check the health of the honeybees and how the honey production is faring. All ages are welcome!
No registration required. All ages are welcome
