Program Description


Join us to enjoy a summer full of wild and fantastical fun through this series of virtual classes! Each week’s class will explore a different topic through activities inspired by this year’s Summer Reading theme: Tails and Tales.

Through curbside pickup, all registered participants will need to pick up a bag of supplies that will be used to complete the class’s activity. Supply pickup for the take and make will be at either the Main Library (1080 Old Post Road) or the Fairfield Woods Branch Library (1147 Fairfield Woods Road). Please see below for specific details on where to pick up the supply bag.

This event will be hosted through Zoom, a virtual meeting service. You will need to download the Zoom app onto your Android/Apple device or the Zoom program onto your computer. Participants will receive a reminder e-mail with the event’s unique Zoom meeting ID information, which they will need to join from home.

Registration is required and is separate for each class each week. Please only register for one of the class dates each week since the same class is offered four times (In person/outside at the Woods Branch at 4:00 pm on Tuesday and Thursday; virtual on Zoom at 11:00 am on Wednesday; and supply pickup only (no live class) at 2:00 pm on Thursday). Space is limited. Registration opens on Tuesday, June 1.

*For the safety of all our patrons, we need to be aware of who is joining. We ask that you please use your child’s first name when joining our events through Zoom.


Did you know that all turtles have tails? Some are short, some are long and they are a clue to a turtle’s species and gender.  Join us for this chenille stem craft.  We’ll make a fuzzy turtle, a fun turtle home and learn more exciting reptile facts!

To do the activity, you will need to provide your own scissors, a fine point black marker, and markers or crayons. Other necessary supplies will be provided.

For children entering grades K-5. Registration is required.


Tuesday, June 22 from 2:00-5:00 pm at the Main Library only (1080 Old Post Road, Fairfield, CT 06824)
