Design an Obstacle – Where animals, creativity, and duct tape come alive!  We want to make the back sidewalk an obstacle course that the children (and adults) can enjoy.  Think kangaroo hop or leopard leap.  Come in or send Sheila an email at with a design of three and we will set you up with a week in the summer that you can create it with duct tape.  We provide the tape and post your finished work so everyone can come try it out.


Create a Coding video—Pick up a code project kit from the library.    We provide the instructions and materials and you create a short video of you/friends/family member doing the project in the kit. Send the video to Sheila at to be posted on our Facebook page on a Wacky Wed in July. 


FOFF—Feed Our Furry Friends. Each time you visit the library, scoop a scoop of dog food into our special container to help the library donate dog food to the Animal Welfare Society (AWS in Kennebunk).  Dog food provided by the Loyal Companion our local pet store.  If you would like to do more for our furry friends,  AWS has a wish list on their website. If you purchase an item from that wishlist from Loyal Companion in Sanford (Shaw's Plaza)  and drop it off at the Library, you will earn an extra raffle ticket.
