What’s Happening at Dayton’s Bluff Library? – December 2022

Dayton’s Bluff Library will be closed from December 12 - January 2  due to renovations underway in the Metro State Library building. Please visit nearby branches:  Arlington Hills (1200 Payne Ave; 651-632-3870), Sun Ray (2105 Wilson Ave; 651-501-6300), and George Latimer Central Library (90 West Fourth St; 651-266-7000) while Dayton’s Bluff is closed. Pick up a Winter Break activity before December 10 to enjoy.

Winter Break Fun programs for school-age kids will be happening at other library locations in Saint Paul on many of the days when school is out between December 19 - January 2. Please visit sppl.org for dates and locations.

Boredom Buster Books are available in the library for school-age children and their families to bring home and use to keep busy while they are out of school this winter. The books are filled with ideas for winter fun that kids can enjoy independently, such as puzzles and games, as well as activities the whole family can enjoy together like winter hikes and tree lighting ceremonies taking place around the Twin Cities.

A generous patron has donated Dayton’s Bluff Library with a new 3D Printer! Our staff is hard at work assembling the printer, learning how to use it, and brainstorming ways to share it with the public. We look forward to printing with our patrons and will have more information soon about its availability for public use.

Our children’s area has a new sensory toy for infants and toddlers. Keep your babies close and occupied with a soft foam sensory ring featuring a chick that squeaks, a leaf-shaped rattle and more while you browse the collection.

Thank you to everyone who voted in the Dayton’s Bluff Library Mascot Election. It was a tight race until the very end, with two candidates tied in votes. We are proud to announce Rex the Dragon and The Mighty Axolotl will serve the Dayton’s Bluff Library as co-mascots!
