Programs for Children
All programs are free; no advance sign-up is needed.
Mother Goose Lapsit and Playgroup
Mondays & Thursdays @ 10:30 am
Join us on the rug as Children's Librarian Miss Robin teaches nursery rhymes, finger rhymes, songs and stories using puppets, felt pieces, shakers, bells and scarves! Mother Goose on the Loose is a rhyme-filled program promoting early literacy in children from birth through 2 years old. Smaller children participate with accompanying grown-ups learning rhymes, songs and hearing stories. The program is followed by playtime allowing children and adults to interact with each other and the toys provided by the library.
This program is free with no advance sign-up required. Programs begin promptly at 10:30 and concludes in 20 to 25 minutes. After that families stay in the room to talk and play! (Same program is repeated on both days each week.)
Storytime and Playgroup
Wednesdays @ 10:30 am
Stories, new and old, rhymes, songs, movement and creativity including a simple craft or coloring sheet are all part of this program for kids and the grown-ups who bring them! Best for ages 3 to 6 but older and younger siblings are welcome. A different theme each week. After the 30 minute formal program, there is time for adults and kids to socialize and enjoy a snack in the room.
