It’s Story Time

Posted August 28th, 2017 in Uncategorized

story time logoStory time and our regular slate of programming for children and teens returns Sept. 5.

Amanda and her crew have blended old and new programs for an exciting line-up.

Returning programs at main library

Story time for babies and toddlers is held at 11 a.m., Mondays at 10 a.m. on Tuesdays. Preschool story time is held Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 11 a.m. Did you know that our staff creates a lesson plan for each week’s story time? Each one has a theme, and the lesson plan includes the stories they’ll read, and the related songs, activities and craft. They even include a prop list. I wish I were that organized.

Lego Play is typically held on the third Wednesday of the month. Please check the calendar on our website before coming. Sometimes holidays necessitate a change in schedule.

The main library’s homeschool activities continue on Wednesdays at 2:30 p.m. We’ll explore a new science, technology, engineering or math them on the first Wednesday of each month. Our popular Lego Play is back on the second Wednesday of the month. A new program is held on the third Wednesday.

New programs at main

We have a new program for homeschoolers at the main library. Join us the third Wednesday of the month for Arts and Crafts at 2:30 p.m.
