Children’s Early Lit Programs ~
Every Wednesday 10:30-11:00
Baby Time is geared towards children 0-18 months old. This program focuses on the caregiver and child interaction incorporating fingerplays, rhymes, songs, lap bounces, scarves, and board books. This storytime is followed by optional socializing and play time, and free coffee and tea is provided for the adults.
Every Tuesday 10:30-11:00
Toddler Time builds off Baby Time, but increases the amount of movement. There will be music, movement, books, and fun!
Every Thursday 10:30-11:30
3’s, 4’s, & 5’s
Every Thursday, there is 3’s, 4’s, & 5’s. This program is ideal for children 3-5 years old. The storytime is longer, and involves more movements, games, and picture books. At the end of each storytime, there is a hands-on activity or craft related to the week’s theme.
Lego Club ~
Every Wednesday afternoon from 3:30-4:30
One-on-One digital tutoring on computers or an electronic device.
Is the tablet or ereader your son or daughter gave you still in its box since your birthday last fall? Would you like someone to help you learn to take a picture and send it, or a text? Meet with our Digital Tutor with your tech device, or just your questions. Call the Library and we will help you make an appointment for a convenient time.
This group meets weekly in the library on Tuesday evenings from 5:30-7:30 pm to work and socialize over hand work. Join us for knitting, quilting, crocheting or what ever handwork you do!
