September at the Roselle Public Library District



September is a month of change: the kids are back at school, the air during your morning walk is a little crisper, and new colors are starting to peek out of the leaves. At the Roselle Public Library District, September is also a month of diversity, with programs for all ages.

We start with Wak*ka*doodle Wednesday on Wednesday, September 14, 4:30-6:30P, where crafty kids can create a new masterpiece. No registration is required, but a parent or caregiver must accompany children younger than 8.

The next evening holds a few more crafty hours with Cable Me This: Crochet Cables, Thursday, September 15, 7-8:30P. Encounter new friends as you encounter new techniques, learning to crochet traditional, mini, and braided cables using front post and back post stitches.

Registration is required through our online calendar or by phone at 630.529.1641, ext. *222. Participants should bring one solid-color skein of any worsted weight yarn and a size H or I crochet hook.

On Saturday, September 17, 10-10:45A, it's time to encounter more new friends while honoring old ones at A. Teddy Bear's Birthday Party! Join the celebration by singing, dancing, listening to stories, and playing games.

Each child can bring a teddy bear or other favorite stuffed animal to the party. Parents and caregivers must accompany them. Registration is required through our online calendar or by phone at 630.529.1641, ext. *351. Children must be between two and six years old.

While kids have their jam session on Saturday, adults have their own Sunday, September 18, 1:30-3P with traveling singer-songwriter Kraig Kenning at the season's first Musical Sunday. A longtime patron favorite, Kenning will perform his special blend of contemporary folk, blues, roots rock, American fingerstyle, and more.

Refreshments will be served, including coffee and cookies. No registration is required.

The string of great programs continues with Medicare 101, Monday, September 19, 7-8P. Insurance expert David Wylly is back by popular demand to provide an overview of how Medicare works and the important decisions made during open enrollment periods.

Wylly will discuss what Medicare covers, what it doesn't, and options for additional coverage like supplemental insurance plans, Part D Drug Prescription plans, and Advantage plans.

Registration is required through our online calendar or by phone at 630.529.1641, ext. *222.

If you need to unwind after Monday night, the next evening's Coloring Night at the Library! will tickle you pink! Join other armchair artists on Tuesday, September 20, 6:30-8P for an hour and a half of the hottest (and possibly unexpected) relaxation trend: coloring.

We'll provide the pages, pencils, and markers, but feel free to bring your own supplies. Registration is required through our online calendar or by phone at 630.529.1641, ext. *222.

Then on Wednesday, September 21, 6:30-7:30P, it's time to harness a different sort of creativity with Hands-On Robot Lab. Kids in third through fifth grades will learn about robots and coding firsthand, cooperating to complete a series of challenges using Ozobots. No experience necessary, but registration is required through our online calendar or by phone at 630.529.1641, ext. *351.

Did you know Thursday, September 22 is World Rhino Day? Celebrate with us 4:30-5:15P and learn rhino facts, hear rhino stories, and create a rhino craft!

This program is limited to children in kindergarten through second grade. Registration is required through our online calendar or by phone at 630.529.1641, ext. *351.

We take a break for a few days, but return with more guidance on Monday, September 26, 7-8P with Filing for Social Security: Flexibility & Choices for Retirement.

Are you filing for Social Security within the next five years? Mike Heatwole of Waddell & Reed will teach you how to optimize your benefits. Workbooks are provided to each participant.

Registration is required through our online calendar or by phone at 630.529.1641, ext. *222.

Our last hurrah for September is a big one: National Voter Registration Day. Get engaged and register to vote in the upcoming election with one of the library's 12 registrars from open to close (9:30A-9P).

Bring two forms of identification, with at least one showing your current residential address. Examples include a valid Illinois driver's license or state ID, employee or student ID, Social Security card, birth certificate, utility bill, valid U.S. passport, or lease or rental contract.

Questions? Call us at 630.529.1641, ext. *222, or contact the DuPage County Election Commission at 630.407.5600 or dupageco.org/election.

By the end of September, you may be ready for the quieter pace of fall, but with our help, you may also have learned new things, listened to good music, and participated in national events. Not bad for one month, huh?
