Magic Candle Stories Illuminate Library

Magic Candle Tales, an evening program featuring stories and creative activities for elementary-aged children, begins at the Kent Island Branch of the Queen Anne’s County Free Library on Monday, November 12 from 6:30-7:15 p.m.

Gathered around a candle in the children’s room of the library, children will read and sing before engaging in creative activities. This month’s program features stories about homes and the opportunity to build houses using LEGO bricks or foam sheets. Houses created during the program will be featured in the library’s lobby display cases.

November 10-18 is National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week as sponsored by the National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness.

To increase awareness of this growing epidemic, the Local Management Board and the Department of Community Services, Division of Housing and Community Services have teamed with the library to present this month’s Magic Candle Stories to help bring a better understanding of hunger/homelessness to local students.

Families attending the program are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for the emergency food pantry at Safe Harbor. The library will continue to accept donations throughout the month of November.

The library is located at 200 Library Circle in Stevensville. All library programs are free of charge. No registration is required for Magic Candle Stories.
