Fall Happenings in the Kids Section
I wanted to draw your attention to some of our fantastic youth programs happening this fall!
Our storytime schedule starts the week of September 9th.
On Mondays, from 10am - 11am, we are offering a "Toddler Dance Party" with Ms. Rachel, from AB2. This is a new program for us and offers young learners and opportunity to use movement to strengthen brain development and motor skills. Ms. Rachel offers toddlers an opportunity to move their bodies, to learn musical and movement concepts and to do an obstacle course with sensory stimulation.
On Fridays from 10:15am - 11:15am, Ms. Sally will be doing a "Little Ones" storytime for children ages 0 - 5. Ms. Sally's storytimes are legendary and offer parents and children an opportunity to sing, to read and to do a fun storytime craft.
On Saturdays, from 9am - 10am, join Ms. Molly for a family storytime for ages 0 - 7. Perfect for parents who work during the week, Ms. Molly's storytimes are sure to engage children of all ages.
Please Note: Storytimes will not be held on holidays or when public school is closed.
Our Makerspace Academy (Tuesday 3pm - 4pm) /Open Makerspace (Thursdays 3pm - 4pm) is intended to allow children in grades K - 12 the opportunity to make, create and play with science and technology!
If you are a parent, you might be asking "Wait, Ms. Molly, what exactly is a makerspace?"
A makerspace provides children with a creative, hands-on opportunity to design, experiment and invent as they engage in learning, science and tinkering. Children have the opportunity to learn about concepts like: robotics, electricity, and coding; while working with others to build, create and invent.
And finally, a reminder. Children grades 3 and below must have parental supervision in the library, even if they are attending a program. Parents are welcome to attend Makerspace programs with their children in grades 3 or below.
