Extended hours, special programs coming to Mentor Schools’ Hub

Mentor Public Library will host programs for all ages -- from story timers to seniors -- at Mentor High School's renovated HUB.

Mentor Public Library will host programs for all ages — from story timers to seniors — at Mentor High School’s renovated Hub.

We’re partnering with Mentor Public Schools to share the resources and technology available at Mentor High School’s Hub with you.

For three days, The Hub will be open for extended hours from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Those days are Tuesday, Feb. 20, Thursday, March 15, and Wednesday, April 25.

Each day, we’ll host special programs where people—from children to seniors—can use the technology at The Hub. The space will also be available for study and quiet tutoring, as well.

On Feb. 20, kids from third to eighth grade can learn about computer coding with Hour of Code at 6:30 p.m. Kids can get a free introduction to computer science with no experience necessary.

On March 15, students can check out Fresh Colors—the library’s art club for teens—at 4:30 p.m. Each month, the club learns about different artists and experiments with different mediums. In March, teens will try their hands at German Expressionism.

Coincidentally, March 15 is Incredible Kid Day. So seniors can come to The Hub and use its technology to make and send videos to their grandchildren or favorite incredible kid from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The seniors don’t need any experience with producing video. Student volunteers from Mentor High School will help them make, edit and send the videos.

On April 25, families of college-bound students can learn strategies and methods for affording college at 5:30 p.m. An expert from the Lake-Geauga Educational Assistance Foundation will explain how and where to find tuition assistance.

Additionally, we’ll also host a special family story time at 6:30 p.m. that day at The Hub.

Finally, adults can relax by coloring from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. on April 25. Coloring can help decrease stress and anxiety while increasing focus and concentration—even for grown-ups.

All of these programs and services will be offered in Mentor High School’s renovated and revitalized library, now called The Hub, at 6477 Center St. in Mentor.

All three of these special evenings are open to all and free to attend.
