Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Extravaganza!



Sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Windham


If you are 6 years of age or older, don’t miss this afternoon of


Willy Wonka madness!


On Saturday, January 16th, starting at 1:00pm,

we will transform the multi-purpose room into a


factory of fun. 


Taste a treat from the chocolate fountain, try your luck at a bubble gum blowing contest, guess the chocolate treats in the jar, and much more.  We will begin the party by reading a short excerpt from the book followed by cupcake decorating and other activities. Our afternoon will conclude with the movie “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” starring Gene Wilder as we indulge in tons of popcorn and gigantic lollipops!


Due to the length of this program, parents have the option of either staying in the library, or leaving and returning at 3:00pm.  Each participant will also bring home his/her very own copy of the book, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” motion picture version provided by F.L.O.W.



Space is limited, and pre-registration is required.  To register for this program, please call the library at 432-7154, or register in person at the front desk.  Each registrant will receive his or her own “Golden Ticket”

to enter the “chocolate factory” that day.
