REGULAR SCHOOL YEAR PROGRAMMING
- Toddler Time every Monday morning from 10:00-10:20 for ages 1-3 with parent or caregiver. Short stories with music and movement, all to develop a comfort in the library as well as love for great stories. It’s also a fun networking time for adults! No sign-up is necessary – please join us whenever you can.
- Story Time every Tuesday and Wednesday morning from 10:00-10:45 for ages 3-6 with parent or caregiver. Longer stories, along with music & games, followed by a related craft or activity. No sign-up needed. (Note: The Tuesday and Wednesday sessions are identical.)
- Sleepy Time Stories are (usually) the first Monday evening of each month from 6:30-7:30. Featuring new books, this is a fun story time for the whole family. Pajamas, stuffed animals and pillows are welcome! Milk + cookies afterward. Join us Monday evening, January 8th.
Children’s Resource Center’s Toddler Playgroups:
- This year, the fabulous folks from CRC will be here some Thursday mornings from 10:00-11:00, bringing a wealth of fun activities for ages 18-36 months. Please sign up to attend the next awesome session on December 14th.
Every Wednesday afternoon from 2:30-3:30 is a special time for homeschooled kids in grades K-5. We start with a classic read-aloud, followed by a related activity. A program for grades 6-12 is offered simultaneously in the Teen Room. No sign-up needed. (Note: No sessions December 27 and January 3)
“Maybe Christmas DOESN’T come from a store. Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”
Thursday evening, December 14th at 6:30, The Grinch is coming to Grizzly Hall! Hear him read his story and have your picture taken with him. Stay for family Grinch-y crafts and green snacks. It’s a fun holiday evening for the whole family. No sign-up needed.
Wonderful certified therapy dogs return to the library Tuesday afternoons in October! Dogs are nonjudgmental listeners, providing a comfortable audience for both beginning and proficient readers. Proven to help with fluency, it’s also just plain fun. Sign up for a 15-minute slot between 3:45 and 4:45 Tuesday afternoons. (Note: No sessions December 26 and January 2)
Every Thursday afternoon from 3:00-8:00, all devices are turned off in the Kids’ Library to give everyone a needed break from screens. There are plenty of other things for kids to do: board games, coloring, craft projects…and BOOKS!! We’ll love to be your haven.
Keep in mind… “Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.”
