If you haven’t walked through the children’s section of the library recently, you may not have noticed all the new additions. Now there’s a puppet theater, puzzles, and other hands-on interactive toys available for children to explore, as well as a wonderful selection of books, music, audiobooks, and movies. Children build important language skills through reading, writing, talking, singing, and playing. The new Little Learning Lounge provides a space for caregivers and children to engage in these activities together.
In addition, Youth Services offers many exciting children’s programs every week. For younger children, there are 4 storytimes each week, including a Saturday storytime, and there are are 1-2 educational programs for school-age children. There is even a monthly book club just for tweens.
The library usually sponsors a couple of special programs each month targeting a range of topics and interests. These programs are offered during the evenings and on weekends to make them accessible to more families. Recent examples include the Bright Star Touring Theatre performance celebrating Black History Month, the science of flight, LEGOs at the library, Frozen singalong and other family movies, campfire stories, and Mother Goose games.
Why not bring your child, grandchild, or another child in your life by the library to take advantage of everything on offer? And please spread the word about all of the wonderful children’s programs at the library. Learn more and keep up on upcoming events by subscribing to the Youth Services eNewsletter.
