COSI Dinosaur Connect Kits Available

In celebration of the opening of our Savage Ancient Seas exhibit, the library is offering to families a free Dinosaur COSI Connects Kit.

These free kits, available while supplies last, include five dinosaur-themed STEM activities and science experiments for grades 2-6.

So that everyone has a chance to enjoy these kits, we are limiting distribution to 1 kit per family.

Beginning Tuesday, October 4, 2022, adults may stop by the library and pick up a kit at the Circulation Desk. These kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Swimming Lessons Offered

UPDATE: All spaces in both swimming classes are now full. However, please continue to call or email to register as we are keeping a call back list if it is decided to offer the lessons again at a later date.

Bossard Library, in partnership with the City of Gallipolis, is excited to offer Library patrons, ages 2 and older, with the opportunity to enroll in a four-week beginning swim class.
