February school vacation has arrived!  

There will be much going on at the Haston Library to keep children entertained. 


On Tuesday, Feb. 21, Children’s Librarian Rosemary Mackenzie will offer a Drop-In Crafts day.  From 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. children from pre-school to sixth grade can try their hand at any of four do-it-yourself work stations set up in the Craft Room of the Children’s Library.  A variety of materials will be made available along with step-by-step instructions on how to produce four different fun creations.

 On Wednesday, Feb. 22, the Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary will present a program entitled “Wild Tales” in which the children will have the opportunity to meet and learn about screech owls.  This outreach program of the Mass Audubon Society will have two showings, one from 2:00-2:30 p.m. and the other from 3:00-3:30 p.m.  Children must sign up ahead of time for this program, and attendance is limited.  Don’t be disappointed!  Call the library at 508-867-0208 to register now.

 On Thursday, Feb. 23, from 1:30-2:15 p.m. Renee Coro will present a program of Music and Movement in the Community Meeting Room of the library.  Ms. Coro is a board certified music therapist who has also worked as a music educator, musician and entertainer for many years.  She has become well-known in the area for her lively, interactive musical story hours and special programs for children of all ages.   No sign up is required for this program.
