WINCHENDON — Are you looking for some exciting and unique experiences this summer? Then head over to the Beals Memorial Library as they wrap up their big Summer Reading Club with a few activities that are sure to be fun for everyone.

If your kids love arts and crafts, then join the library on Wednesday, Aug. 4, at 2 p.m. for their Animal Mobile Craft activity. Participants will get to make a cute, jungle animal mobile they can hang up at home. Space is limited, so contact the library to reserve a spot.

On Thursday, Aug. 5, at 6 p.m., the library welcomes all stargazers to join them for their Lore of the Night Sky program. Take a fascinating walk through the seasons as Aldrich Astronomical Society introduces you to a diverse menagerie of creatures, and how they ended up in the night sky. Stargazing on the common at Old Center will follow, weather permitting. This event is open to all, no registration necessary.

Finally, on Friday, Aug. 6, at 8 p.m., the library will wrap up this year’s Summer Reading Club with the first of three animal-centered Outdoor Movie Nights. The first movie of the month will be the hit Disney animated film, Zootopia. Drop in early for some live, musical entertainment beginning at 7 p.m. on each Movie Night. On Aug. 6, musical entertainment will be provided by Knock on Wood. Bring the whole family and some lawn chairs. During this event, the Friends of the Library will be running both their regular book sale and a concession stand from 6 to 8 p.m. This event is open to all, no sign-ups required.

All summer events at the library will be held outdoors on the library lawn.

Beals Memorial Library is located at 50 Pleasant St. in Winchendon. For more information or to register for an event, contact the library at 978-297-0300 or email at
