12:00 PM
Rotary Luncheon
Weekly lunch meeting, visiting Rotarians welcome. Faregrounds Restaurant, 27 Fairgrounds Road.
3:00 PM to 4:30 PM
Minecraft Club
Our club is different in that we use the MinecraftEdu game, which allows for all players to be in one world at the same time. The worlds we choose will vary as the club unfolds. Different worlds may focus on building things, solving problems, facing a particular challenge, survival, or more. Many times participants will have multiple goals and need to work together as a team to find solutions. Space is limited, call to register 508-228-1110. Held at the Atheneum Learning Lab, 1 India Street
3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Bulgarian Folk Songs with Gergana Neykova
Music concepts are introduced using traditional Bulgarian songs, folklore, dancing, and costume elements. Songs are taught using fun games to encourage easy adaptation to the Bulgarian language. The class is taught in Bulgarian and English. All children ages 2-10 are welcome. Free, but please register at 508-228-3352 or email
6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Knitting and Crocheting Circle
A weekly Knitting and Crocheting Circle; bring your own project pattern, yarn, needles and hooks and we will help each other with pattern directions and stitches as we go along. The library has many pattern books but feel free to bring your favorite patterns and Internet sites to share. Whether you choose to knit for charity or also work on your own project, a hat, a ruffled scarf or a baby item, this workshop will get you going on your project list or perhaps help you finish that project stuck in the back of your closet! Beginners welcome. The Nantucket Atheneum Main Floor, 1 India Street
