CHILDREN’S PROGRAMS:

TD SUMMER READING PROGRAM: Coming soon

Keep an eye out for news and updates regarding our award-winning TD Summer Reading Program. The program will begin with a Kick-Off Party at the beginning of July. Many activities have been planned and this summer will be filled with lots of fun and creativity.

Books & Babies: Tuesday mornings, 10:00 am – 11:00 am – After your morning walk in the fresh, spring air, come and visit this drop-in group for parents and children 2 years old and under. A group full of great conversation, and a safe place for children to socialize with others their own age.

LEGO Club: Wednesday afternoons, 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm – This drop-in program for children ages 6-12 has a brand new build challenge every single week. As your child’s skills grow they can also attempt the weekly “Expert Build Challenge.” Several Snap Circuit kits are also available to explore while visiting LEGO Club. We also have lots of fun incorporating other STEM activities and experiments each week along with building our LEGO creations.

Story Time: Friday mornings, 10:30 am – 11:30 am -This is a drop-in group full of singing, dancing, and stories. Each week we have a themed craft that connects to what we learned from our story. Visit Story Time, and leave with new friends and amazing art creations. For the month of May we will talk about plants, gardens, spring weather, and how things grow!

Sleepy Story Time: Thursday, May 23rd from 6:15 pm – 7:00 pm. Visit the library in your pajamas and bring along one of your stuffed animal friends. We will cozy up and read stories as the sun goes down. Stuffed animal friends are able to stay for a “Stuffy Sleepover” and often are caught on the library cameras getting into all sorts of trouble! Videos of the Stuffies’ antics are posted on the Shelburne Library’s Facebook page /ShelburneLibrary.
