Stick Together!

 Can you see the image we're creating?

 Join us at the Dorris Van Doren Regional Library as our patrons participate in our Stick Together Puzzle project. Little by little, as participants place colorful stickers on their corresponding space, the image will be revealed!

Any guesses so far on what it might be?

Tie Dye Party

Dorris Van Doren Regional Library hosted a tie-dye party for our Teen Hangout group. Our teens were provided with t-shirts to dye in whatever colors they wanted. 

They learned how to create different patterns based on how they bundled their shirts. Then they banded them and applied the dye. They also got the opportunity to mix their own dye based on the instructions provided to them. 

While we didn't get to see the finished products of their creations (tie-dye needs 6-8 hours to set). We could already see the interesting patterns they were creating. 

It was a fun program and put our teens in a Spring Break mindset in preparation for their approaching vacation from school.

Happy Year of the Tiger!


The Dorris Van Doren Regional Library kicked off the Year of the Tiger with a program celebrating Chinese New Year. Our attendees listened to stories and created amazing crafts. 

It was fun to learn about a brand new culture that may have not been familiar to our guests. 

Keep an eye on our social media to see what other special events we host in the future!

A Visit from Curious George

As we wrapped up our 2021 Summer Reading Program, the Dorris Van Doren Library received a visit from a V.I.P. (Very Important Primate)! Curious George stopped by the library on August 20 to listen to stories with his human friends, take photos, and participate in crafts. 

A wonderful time was had by all. 

This Summer Reading Program was a success! The Dorris Van Doren branch registered over 700 people, who read nearly 140,000 minutes! We hope that you all will continue to read and come by the library to check out books even now that the summer is over. 

Thank you to all who participated! We are still giving away goodie bags to anyone who completed the Summer Reading Club (while supplies last) so stop by and pick up yours today!
