What's happening at the library?

Sun damage skin screening

The Friends of the Jamestown Library are sponsoring a Sun Safety Screening program from Blue Cross at the library on Monday, July 30, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

During the program, a Blue Cross representative will use DermaView technology to analyze sun damage on the face, allowing participants to see the effects of cumulative sun exposure since early childhood. Summer skin safety tips on proper use of sunscreen and other steps to take to avoid burns and long-term skin damage will be available.

Bare skin is best for screening. For those who use facial moisturizers or cosmetics that contain sunscreen, please remove it before coming to the screening. The program will be held in the meeting hall. For more information, call the library at 423-7280.

Storytime each Wednesday

The schedule of weekly storytimes at the Jamestown library are as follows:

On Wednesdays, from 10:15 to 11 a.m., there will be a storytime for 2-year-olds with their caregivers. From 11:15 to noon, storytimes will be for 3 to 5-year-olds.

Storytimes feature fantastic read-aloud books, finger plays, music and a coordinating craft project.
