February 6, 2021, 1:00 PM - February 13, 2021, 1:00 PM @ Waukee Public Library | Online
In this online class, Dina from Five Monkeys Inc. will teach you to paint a mug design from start to finish. Those registered for this class will get to pick-up a Ceramic Paint-Along Kit from the Library containing 1 unpainted mug, a palette of paint colors needed for the design, and brushes needed to follow along with the video and create the design at home!
Those on the registration list will be able to pick-up their free Kit (one per household) via curbside pick-up on Friday, February 5th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. Curbside pick-up will be located at the Library (unless otherwise announced).
Missed the chance to sign-up for a Kit? You can still "attend" the class! The video of this class will be publicly available from Saturday, February 6th at 1:00pm to Saturday, February 13th at 1:00pm.

The Waukee Public Library is excited to offer our Dial-A-Story service!
Simply call the Dial-a-Story phone line (515-981-7800) any time to hear a selection of books read aloud by library staff. Listen for as long or as little as you wish. New selections will be recorded every month, for infants through elementary aged students.
Listening to stories has many literacy benefits, including vocabulary development, increased focus and attention span, and imagination skills. Kids may want to draw or color while listening, or just sit back and enjoy this screen-free story option. If you find a story that you love, feel free to place a hold on a print copy through the library catalog.
This month, we’re sharing books about emotions! We have rhythmic picture books, nonfiction, poems, and songs and rhymes for babies.
